Hey thanks mcgarry. I knew we were pals.mcgarry said:Hector,
If I may, maybe what the good Captain meant to say was something like that iBook purchasers are buying something they should know is not necessarily going to be the most future-proof option, from a hardware standpoint, and not necessarily going to have all the bells and whistles of more expensive alternatives, however important or not one considers them. Or he was making a pun!
The 12" PBook does have a 64MB 5200. I think you meant the ibook.solvs said:Actually, from what I've seen, even the last generation iBook has some basic Core Image functionality. I have a developer friend who showed me some cool tricks he can do with the latest Tiger build on a 12" 1GHz G4 iBook. I think people are confusing the requirements of Motion and CI, especially thanks to some early recommended configurations. And worse, confusing some of CI's fancier effects with actually running Tiger itself.
Remember when Quartz Extreme's requirements seemed to be at least 32MB VRAM, even though Apple was still selling iBooks with 16MB? And they later changed the specs? Same thing.
I do hope they up the specs a bit though, even if the 12" PBook only has a 64MB 5200.
Nope, Apple is notorious for holding back it's consumer stuff when it's pro-stuff is lagging. If the current 12" PBook has a 64MB 5200, what will they put in the iBook?CaptainCaveMann said:The 12" PBook does have a 64MB 5200. I think you meant the ibook.
Care to elaborate more on this as I'm a bit off track with mac history.solvs said:Remember when Quartz Extreme's requirements seemed to be at least 32MB VRAM, even though Apple was still selling iBooks with 16MB? And they later changed the specs? Same thing.
Generally speaking the iBooks are as good as the previous generation Powerbooks.CaptainCaveMann said:Heres a profound thought for everyone who asks this question. Who buys an ibook to do core imaging work?
I don't know if this is what you were looking for, but here is the official answer. You can also try searching this board for some in-depth discussions, if you haven't already.nikeballa09 said:this might be a newb question, but i am thinking about switchin soon, and i would like to know what exactly core imaging is? and what does it do? what is its purpose? what kinda of used would take advantage of this technology? thanks
