ok, I just wanna post this thread to see who has the oldest mac desktop as their main computer. It cant be a computer that you have stashed away in your basement, it has to be the machine you currently use as your main computer. You see Im long over due for an update. ive had my Mac for 10 years, yes I love my Mac... but the poor thing cant really handle much more before it goes BOOM! Its come to a point were I HAVE to upgrade, but in the meantime this is what I got: Im running a PowerMac G4 400 mhz, PCI, 512MB RAM, 10GB and 13GB hard disks, with Mac OSX Panther and Adobe CS2 bundle. Its never given me a virus, spy ware, never crashed, never had to reinstall the operating system, ive had it for 10 years, used it extensivly and downloaded tons a crap from the internet. i use it to work, do my audio, graphic design and illustration stuff and even animations with after effects. It serves its purpose for me. It runs a bit slow but not as slow as to keep me working. It doesnt die. But frankly I want to play star Craft 2 when it comes out so i'll need a better machine. It cant handle leopard or CS 3 since they occupy more disk space. So my mac has reached its end. Panther was its last stop. I can install Tiger but it will leave me with very little disk space to run adobe software, since they require SCRATCH disk space. Its alright to laugh, but i love my machine. but im gonna purchase a higend Macbook ro to replace it soon, but right now its currently my main MAC.
