While in town last week (while i was on my break), I happened to stop in one of the Apple Retail Stores, i originally wanted to look for the new Ipod and the Nano to see how much roughly they were gonna cost me (my current mp3 player is *****). well i got chatting with the sales guy, and happened to mention i was lookin to upgrade my pc soon too. He suggested i looked at some of the macs in store, so i let im show me a few systems. i saw the portabl e but i dont really need a laptop, and also the iMac which seemed to be good 4 the price. i had a play around with some of the systems on show and MAC OS seemed nice, much better than windows xp home i have on my old machine. so one thing led to anuther and i ened up getting my creidt card out. there isnt one specific task i want to do but i do want graphics horsepower so i can play games and such... oh yeah and i got my Ipod too. I was goin to get an imac but the guy in the apple store said you cant open the imac up and upgrade the graphics processor, and i dont like the idea of not being able to expand its capability alter. so i bought a 2 Ghz Power Mac G5 with a 7800 gt, although they dont have the 7800 in stock yet or something so i had to leave it out or wait a while (6 weeks? ) so i choose to hold out till xmas time when hopefully it will arrive. problem is that i didnt know about apple and this intel thing? a friend of mine told me id wasted my money as the macs are gonna be obselete next year and no new software will come out for em, i though he was talking crap but he showed me a link to an intel switch article.. and it seems its true? should i get my order cancled and wait till 2006? i wanted to keep my mac for about 3 years or so, i i like to get alot of use out of my stuff. how come the guy in the apple store didnt tell me about this, are apple trying to clear out old stock or something that sux!! i think ill stop my order and just grab a new PC cos it seems that now is a bad time to buy a macintosh.. apple should warn new buyers about this change in store, its unfair.
