Dude, when the G5's hit the market, go for it and don't look back. You won't miss your G4 400 at all. (I'm in the same boat.)Originally posted by GeeYouEye
That's really too bad. I've wanted to upgrade my g4 400. But's its not worth it if it never gets above dual 500.
It is really all relative to what you do with your machine. I REALLY need something faster for VPC.Originally posted by teabgs
Why is everyone complaining about their G4 400? I wish I had a G4...or a G3 for that matter. everyone is so caught up in the G4 400 being out of date while I'm stuck with my 603e. Man, I'm waitingfor somethign bigger and better cause I just want a faster bus. Thats all I ask, then I buy. its taken me a while to save the money for a new computer and I want something new and fast. I know its around the corner.
Jesus, I would die if I had to use those products on a G3 or less.... as it is I get pissed off with speed using Photoshop sometimes, VPC ALL the time even with 896MB RAM and Bryce ALL the time.... esp. if I want to do a long animation.Originally posted by teabgs
I need my new machine for FCP, Photoshop, and MAYA mostly. SO I do actually need the speed and all...
Since you can get a PC & a KVM for about the caost of an upgrade card, why don't you get a PC & a KVM?Originally posted by madamimadamtimallen

Well, I am not actually into upgrade cards thought I can see how you would have thought that was what I was getting at. I am gonna hang out for machines that get talked about on well over 1/3 of threads here now (DDR and such) and then I will buy a new Mac which will DEFINATELY be fast enough for me..... at least until the apps I use get too powerful againOriginally posted by Nipsy

Why?Originally posted by mcrain
...The only difference between all you people wanting speed and me is, that I will probably never do any significant photo editing or video production. I'm an attorney, and the most I'll use my mac for is probably listening to music, storing digital photos, email, word processing, and maybe a few other things. But, damnit, I need more speed than the current G4's are offering!
Correct. And in the meantime: get enough RAM, get a faster, 7200 rpm HDD and maybe an UltraATA 66 controller, if you have a beige or Tupperware G3 ;-)Originally posted by Hemingray

i had to become a techie and make money as a techie to justify being a technoholic like i have become...to me, it is kind of like a game...i want machines, software, cs education, a library, and somehow, by the grace of god, make enough money to pay for it allOriginally posted by mcrain
Eric, buddy, you have to ask why?
If I'm going to buy a new computer, I am going to over purchase. I'm a tech-o-holic. A junkie. I dont' want a used old slow mac that half the people on these boards will offload, I want a new machine.
It's sort of like why I'll buy a porsche before a VW, or why I have an HD instead of a scooter.
