    I, on the other hand, still have my dual core PM G5. It's not going anywhere for a long time. I also have a BlackBook in case I need to run something Intel only.

    Of course not! I just saw a woman with one at my local cafe. She was there with her client, walking them through a website she was working on for them. My friend Mike still uses his as his main computer too.

    I use mine almost daily. It's my living room computer. If I ever get around to getting one of these fancy-pants "HDTVs" that are all the rage these days, I'll hook up my Mini to it. Until then, I'll just have to be content with telling all these kids to get off my lawn!

    Darn whippersnappers with their fancy "Intels"....

    Hmm...*checks marbles profile*

    Uhh, guess not you! :)

    I'm just a simple caveman. This modern "Intel" technology frightens and confuses me!

    Ok, ok...I confess. I do have an Intel Mac. But, it's a creaky old 1.83C2D Mini. Painfully slow, right. At least if you keep reading about it on the internet. :)

    Cool. PPCs forever! :)

    Oh yeah: You should use the G3 iMacs to make Macquariums and put some pet fish in them.
