Hi all i brought my first ever mac in jan 2004... Fantastic little machine spec in my sig.. It does me for all my needs TBH, i have it wired up to my 21" sony trinitron crt which isnt bad nice refresh, i use a nice mouse NOT TRACK PAD (yuk) and its just a fantastic replacement to my old machine, My old machine was a 2500XP AMD i brought a new pc put it together myself realised i didnt need that much power and that new games aint that fun! and just got bored, next thing windows started really nigglin me i dunno if anyone has had it here it kinda just GETS ON UR NERVs and i was a user for 10 years nearly. Anyway here is my point on performance/Power/Mac Specs... I in know way doubt that a 2500XP AMD Barton is a more powerful CPU I in know way doubt that all the other specs are more powerful (raw power) But for some reason this 800Mhz G4 Ibook 640mb ram ladida DOESNT give me a headache! even tho i can feel the machine laging sometimes even tho it doenst anoy me! it doesnt wind me up, its like a strange and acceptable slowness, Anyone else know this? My main problem and point to this that just came out is this... The only software i miss thats on pc is mIRC YES there is mac versions but i find them all crap im using SNAK atm i really dont rate it, when i used to go to web sites like ircspy.com and click a link it would load the chat room for me and start my DL if u know what i mean? CAN anyone recomend a good MiRC client PLEASE?
