Well.. I never thought I would see the day when my mom would finance a powermac for me, but tonight I figured i'd bring it up and she actually said yes. I do web design and I make about 3x more a month than your average teen would working at Target or something, so she knows I can make payments on it every month.. I was thinking about going a little lower and getting an iMac but I realized that if I get a PowerMac I can take it to college with me in 2007 and have it last the whole 4 years, and I'll probably buy myself an intel iBook before I leave for College the year after next. I decided on: Dual 2Ghz G5 512 MB RAM (Crucial upgrade right away to 2gb) Radeon 9600 (256MB VRAM) BT & AE 160GB HD If the Power line is updated on Wednesday I will go with one of the new PowerMacs.. probably the one comparable in price to this setup. If there are no updates, I will be ordering the setup listed above.. I'm not going to hold out forever for an update. Just was so excited I wanted to let everyone know.. thanks for reading my babble!
