Yea, well Steve is known to change his mind.
Remember when he said that flash music players were a waste of money?
"$55 million Q2 profit for apple"
in the hot news ticker, anyone know what Q2 for this financial year almost gone was? Ill bet it was a helluva lot more.
.......and beige powermacs, arent we all glad thats behind us.
So what? That was a Pentium II versus a 603. Different story, different time, different technology, different propaganda.
you mean G3, not 603. G3s were a pretty nice processor when they were first released. I got a 233mhz G3 when they were first released in 1997 and that computer was faster than any other computer I could find. That processor really opened the door for the iMac's success. It was one of the few times when Apple computers were, without a doubt more powerful than any other PCs, and when they were at least on par with the price/dollar deal.
That's not the case now and hasn't been the case for some years. I never was interested in any intel processors until the pentium M. It seems Apple feels the same way.
I was under the impressions that a 603 WAS a G3. But I was incorrect.
thats a great site...I have been looking around for previous applestore pages for a while...slow server though
$5699 for a powerbook g3
It's amazing how close the towers and the PowerBooks were back then. The top PowerMac was 300MHz, while the PowerBooks topped out at 250MHz.
Not that close 20% speed increase. And more due to notebook hard drives and such.
Anyway, do we want to go back to OS8.1?
I smell a poll.
That font on the Hot News Ticker just brought back a flood of memories of my G3 iMac. If only I could get it working..... (it took a power surge and has been dead for a few years now )
Check out that pic of Jobs
I think you mean "poll" perhaps? Sorry, I normally wouldn't point out spelling mistakes, but this one was really funny to me, although I'm not sure why...
wooooha check these prices lol
don't think i could afford any of them lol
i wonder how much they are worth now?
I'm guessing the powerbook still gets you around $250. That's not bad for a 6 year old computer. Desktops prolly only get about $100.
300MHz G3!!! OMG TEH FASATS COMPTR EVRrerrrr!11!!1
I bet my 1.8GHz G5 couldn't compete with it!
i think thats G5 G4 and G3 are faster then pentuim1-4, i think thats Jobs thinks that too. It is in the fututre where PPC stops being faster, then intel( thats the plan that Jobs is banking on.)
I don't believe Steve ever said all flash-based MP3 players were a waste of money. Do you have a link to when/where he said that? He has said (at MWSF 2004, when he introduced the iPod mini) that cheap (under $100) flash-based players don't hold enough songs to be useful and end up getting thrown in a drawer.
"Flash iPod Details?" thread posting from me
The original iMac had a G3 in it? I don't remember that. But whatever.
The picture of those G3 towers brings back many memories of lusting for a computer that I just would NEVER own, or even use for that matter.
The funny thing is a few months back I came across a friends Dad that has a 9600 and I started laughing, it was not so long ago that I thought that THAT computer was just the apex of all that is computing. I'm sure in a few years, I'll run across a G5 2.7 and start laughing once again. I'm so proud to have used Macs since the 68020 processors. All in all, the 604 PowerPC was the best of the Generation 2 PowerPC's. 601 was pretty good too.
What? No one gets Polish jokes anymore?
5 grand for a PB wow!!!
The link is great - fun to explore the other links. It's nice that apple maintains the digital history. The PB price reminds me of how expensive stuff was just a few years back - my IIsi was used and still over $2000.00 in '92; a good video card add on was over $1000; my 500 MB ext drive (need b/c my IIsi only had a 40 MB HD) was over $600 in '95 (or over $100 a MB) - adjust those numbers for 3% yearly inflation and they're even scarier / today's prices are even better.
Just was thinking about the $10,000.00 price of the IIfx!! THAT was something.
This just goes to prove. Web archive is amazing! You can't hide your past .
