My shiny new Dual 1.25GHz Power Mac G4 arrived today. I ordered it the day this model was announced, so I assume I am the first on my block to have the fastest Mac ever made... but only until they announce the next new machine. I find it amusing that people are so worried about their computer becoming obsolete. If it does what you bought it for, and continues to do what you bought it for, you should be happy with it! I should know. I was the first on my block to buy a Mac IIvx (the first model with a CD-ROM drive), which was "obsoleted" by Apple 3 or 4 months later. Nevertheless, it continued to read my CD-ROMs and let me do word processing, photo editing, etc. Now I'm into Final Cut Pro, and this machine should serve me just fine for years, no matter what Apple announces next week/month/year!
