    I want to use the right term, I've seen "Power Mac" more than "PowerMac", but it seems inconsistent to have "PowerBook" and "Power Mac"

    Which is it?

    Thx

    He's allowed to ask a question. Sheesh...

    Why have a forum at all? You can just use google for everything...:rolleyes:

    If you want to be technical, it was originally Power Macintosh ;)

    Yeah, without forums like these, people using google would have far fewer results to find information from.

    Same here.
    As I said before, it makes more sense as one, because "PowerBook" was one word.

    People would know either way, it's not like calling iPod touch the "i touch" =p

    Also Everymac.com has the info too.

    I would bet the older ones were called PowerMac. That is what I remember my 9600 being called. It would also play well with the cpu being a PowerPC.

    Yet "Mac Pro" looks better than "MacPro".

    How brain-ticklingly odd.

    Yeah they probably did that on purpose just so that when we search for "MacPro" almost nothing comes up and when we search using "Mac Pro" we get fifty trillion Mac Book Pro links before a relative hit occurs. :(

    The bastards! :D
