With a house move coming in three weeks my days as a ppc user are numbered. Although the G5 has been the daily driver for my wife for nearly two years in her singing teaching our new house will no longer have a separate piano room with G5 and she has decided that my i7 windows 8.1 machine is more in keeping with her decor plans. Translate this as smaller and more discreet to fit in my study area at the back of the room. It will be a sad day the G5 goes into storage, I've enjoyed keeping it relevant, especially as it is the low end 1.6ghz model. It is also my last working mac. Don't get me wrong I like windows 8.1 but I cut my teeth on these macs at music college and I also just hate stopping using stuff that works but so be it.
