I've been waiting to replace my powerbook for almost a year now, and I was actually holding out for the Core 2 Duo iMacs, but it got to the point where my sleepy machine was driving me crazy so I gave in and pushed the 'buy me' button. Here's what I ordered: 2.66Ghz clock speed Standard 1Gb RAM (will add more when it's cheaper/more available) Bluetooth/Airport (the killer items for delaying the machine) 250Gb HDD (will add another third party HDD when I have more money) 2x superdrives 23" display Applecare Working on a machine like this has been a long time coming... But the truly amazing thing is that my 17" powerbook (Rev A) cost more than this entire setup! *fiddling thumbs, waiting for mac pro to arrive* Anyone out there with nice pics or video of their Mac Pro in action - post 'em in below to give me something to look at while I wait! I'd love to see a quicktime vid of the system operating and the speed of opening apps and multitasking etc. Chuck.
