I would lean as too risky with the location being the kicker that said not a good idea at all.CanadaRAM said:I think I'll start a poll, it will ask
"Would you click on a blind hyperlink in a post, without any knowledge of what was there? Or would you pass because you thought it too risky" Supplementary question "Would it affect your decision if the link were to a server in another country?"
Neither, my current machine isn't that far below either of them. And in truth a choice between those two would depend on what the machine was being used for. And of course a single 2. PowerMac doesn't exist right no, so the question is kinda moot.clayjohanson said:
For better or worse, the .ru TLD has a reputation as a harbor of rogue websites. 10% of the porn, cheap software/watches, get rich quick and fraud spam that I get directs to servers within .ru .eXan said:And whats so bad if the server is in the other country?
Well I did't think about that, I guess Russia is European country because the capital is in Europe.CanadaRAM said:Apologies, I do know that Vladivostok is actually closer to me (4300 mi.) than it is to Moscow (5800 mi). Is Primorsky Krai considered Asian because of location or European because of nationality?
Not to mention, the qualifier of "if you had a choice" Well duh, if I had a choice, of course the faster one.risc said:What's the point of this comparing non-existent hardware with a current model?
So, here's a stupid question to you, cause I really don't know - wich one is the faster computer: the G5 DUAL 1.8 Ghz orBillHarrison said:Not to mention, the qualifier of "if you had a choice" Well duh, if I had a choice, of course the faster one.
Is there more to the question. LOL
The point is, as stated early in the thread, that you cannot decide which is fastest without considering what you gonna use it for...BillHarrison said:Not to mention, the qualifier of "if you had a choice" Well duh, if I had a choice, of course the faster one.

I applaud the fact that you have set a goal for yourself and are saving to reach that goal. Having almost two years to wait can't be all that easy. Since that will be after MacWorld 2007, you should have the latest technology available.wrldwzrd89 said:If I was going to buy a new PowerMac today, and money was not an issue, I'd choose the Dual 2.5 GHz machine. However, neither of those things are true - I don't plan to buy another Mac until February 2007, and I haven't yet saved enough money to purchase the PowerMac of my dreams. Don't worry - I've taken reality checks into account, like the fact that dual displays won't fit on my current desk as long as the other things on it are still there. Dual 30 inch displays probably won't fit even if I clear the desk of everything.
I completely failed to notice that the 2.5 GHz option was single processor. I should have voted for the dual-CPU machine, but there's nothing I can do about that now.Sun Baked said:
Is this the iMac-based PowerMac G5 vs. a Rev. A or B PowerMac.
If it's a iMac-Based PowerMac G5 @ 2.5GHz vs. a Rev. A DP PowerMac 1.8 --then you need to start asking about memory and the apps.
A 1/3 FSB with half the memory and a higher clock speed will have a handicap compared to a 1/2 FSB and double the memory...
Then there is the question of video card, and whether or not one of the machines is running a RAID.
Or is it a FrankenMac running the newest 2.5GHz module, and then you have to ask about 4 DIMMs or 8.
Way too many PowerMac G5s...
