Excuse the post - It's a thought bubble, and MacRumors is the only forum I know of where I wont get bashed for comparing Mac and PC. Yeah i know people here are all keen mac users but they arent 'blind' or ignorant like a lot of PC users are usually (sorry to generalize ). Anyway I bought a new PowerMac G5 2.3 recentley (last month) and although ive been over this a few times in other threads when the new systems (iMac's for instance) arrived i was left wondering if i should have waited a little longer. I didnt expect iMac upgrades at all.... I had two plans in mind, sell my PowerMac & Display > Get an iMac or Sell the PowerMac and get a new Dual Core equiv with PCIe. As the new systems arrived within a short space of time (and being that im not infinatley rich lol, i thought it would be wise to get most of my investment back and renew) I was looking at the graphics options on the site and the 7800 has still not appeared yet. I woner how much it will be.... So, sat with £1600 looking at me i just started browsing a few websites and found myself at OCUK. I must have forgotton how much PC you can get for £1600 these days because what i just speced up made me go . Take a look at the attached image. I'm now in the "Hmmmmm should i go back to PC's for now or carry on with the Mac" position. I really like OSX, i mean its been great - Not having to worry about spyware and virus's has been great, infact ive started taking it for granted. But you have to admit thats a lot of computer down there for the same money as a basic spec Dual Core G5. Yes i know this is a mac site so im not expecting to get totally 'yay PCs' advise but this is teh first time ive been tempted by a PC - I guess the parting with my system to upgrade left me with other complications too .... I could always buy a copy of SuSe if i wanted rid of Windows. Meh help me! Tell me why i shouldnt do this!! Any reasons just make some up if you have too -- Ok but seriously -- would you take the obvious higher spec and Windows/Linux and then go back to Mac's when 'Intels' arrive, waiting in the wings with a trusty PC... or get amnesia about the system i just speced up and go for a nice new Dual-Core system.. Both platforms have definate advantages and dis-advantages but it looks like the hold up in my purchase could be down to me trying to decide if i made the right choice last month or not. I wont lie, i used my PowerMac for games (a lot) but other general use was neat. Although i did miss the fact that i couldnt use my webcam anymore with my MSN contacts.
