Heya, I've just sold my 12in Powerbook to get funds for a new Power Mac G5. However, I have some questions. I'm still at school, and this kinda money is hard to find; I've realised that I need the Power Mac fairly quickly, as exams are coming in May / June and my own computer is useful to revise - I know this from last year, when I used my Powerbook. Will a stock 1.8 (w/out modem and w/ CDRW, no DVDRW) run fine with stock 256mb RAM? It'll be upgraded to 1.25gig RAM as soon as I find another £100, but until that point - will it be fine? I know the RAM bottlenecks the CPU, but to what extent? FWIW, I already have a 20in cinema display, so buying a monitor isn't an issue. If I buy new, the Power Mac works out at about £840 edu. Is refurb a viable option? I take it edu prices don't apply on top of refurb discount? My other question; I need the Power Mac, but I *can* wait if it'll not be too long; I've heard many rumours about expected updates, regarding when they'll be released and what the new features will be. Worth waiting for? Cheers! andy.
