Hi everyone.... Well I finally bit the bullet and I got my new PowerMacintosh G5 today at a local Apple Store and I think I got rather lucky also. I got the old 1.8 dual PowerMac G5 (rev A model) for only $2049.00 (brand new, box never opened). As some of you know, the old dual 1.8 PowerMac G5 had a 160 MB hard drive and 512MB memory. The new (rev B) model has been downsized and only has a 80GB hard drive and 256MB memory. I had heard that the rev A dual 1.8 PowerMac was a great deal and to grab one. You have to remember that this system was selling for almost $2500.00 two months ago and it has all the same specs as the 2.0ghz model now (except 8x SuperDrive). Do you think I made the right decision???? If you want a dual 1.8 call an Apple Store and see if they have any old ones left (it's the same chip). I also got an additional 512 memory so I now have over 1 gig of memory and I got AppleCare and the .Mac program. I decided against buying the ProCare however. All I have to get now is the new 20" Apple display. The system was so easy to set up and it's sooooo quiet. I have no idea what all this complaining is about the fan noise?? I can barely hear the fans. I need help now...... 1. Is Disk Warrior worth buying? 2. I need a surge protector for the new G5, monitor, scanner, and printers. Which one should I get and how many joules? 3. I have a old HP 4000N LaserJet printer with a PS/2 connector. How do I get a USB adapter for that. It's a network printer I believe. 4. When will the new monitors be in the Apple Stores? I found my experience at the Apple Store to be very good and the salespeople were sooooo helpful. They were always there to answer any questions. I wanted to order from a catalog to avoid paying sales tax but it's so nice to be able to buy the computer in person. There are so many more advantages to this and if anytrhing happens I can be sure they will help me at the Apple Store since I am a customer now. Support the Apple Stores!!!
