Hi all. Before I begin let me say this question is to gain opinions, I'm not here to cause trouble. My observation is this. I had a 20" G5 iMac for about 12 months. It was my first mac after switching from windows so obviously I'm a relative newcomer and certainly no expert. I couldn't have been happier with the G5, for what I wanted it ran sweet as a nut with no issues and I was extremely glad I made the switch from using PC's. When the 24" version was released I knew I had to have it and upgraded straight away. Well, it's working ok but compared to the G5, just ok. It just doesnt seem to cope with things as well. When it runs properly it's much faster so I cant complain on that front but I do seem to have had many more issues than I ever did previously with random beachballs, applications not responding and safari grinds to a halt regularly. Here's a random thought, lets assume for arguments sake the problems that plague PC's are 90% windows and 10% architecture. Now the architecture has made it's way over so some of the issues appear to have followed it. Just my newbies opinion but I'd really like to hear if others going from G5 to Intel have noticed a gain in performance but a drop in reliability.
