I am sure many can relate to this.... So as much as I use PowerPC Macs, given that my only desktop Macs are PowerPCs, I need to get back to using my 2009 MacBook Pro again. Since I like desktops way better than laptops, I shifted back to one of my PowerPC desktops for school work. I was considering hooking my MBP up to a monitor, so it will be more desktop-like, which I still will end up doing; however, there are a couple things that may hold me back again. 1. I am currently looking at a cheap listing for a Quad-core PMG5, which I badly want, and another listing that may be a quad (seller getting specs soon). It looks like that has drawn me back a little... 2. The most important reason, which I have not considered in a long time; this is a reason that possibly many can relate to: DISTRACTION.... I admit it, I do tend to get a little distracted on my computer. Many people do, but there are a few who realize that using an older computer, which limits yourself, really helps curb many of these distractions. I have started using my MacBook Pro some more again, even though I don't have the display cable yet, and I find that I can easily dive into any distracting business other than my work! Well, I guess this is something that I will have to work with, as I definitely cannot let this MacBook Pro go to waste and collect dust! However, still will not let go of PowerPC for a long time. I can definitely say that I am just as productive, or in-fact MORE productive on an older machine than I am on a newer machine. I switched back to mainly using PowerPC Macs, in 2013. There is some part of me that feels like I am deserting it by using an Intel Mac again, but I definitely won't part with these systems. We will all eventually have to leave them as primary-ish computers anyway.
