    apple came out with the G5 (4-proccesors) :shock:

    am just wandering if i should get this for X-mas or not the top-of-the line one costs up to $3k and the low end is about $900-1k

    Quad-Core G5 Processing
    With two dual-core processors, at speeds up to 2.5GHz per core, the Power Mac G5 Quad doubles the punch of its dual-processor predecessor. Do the math: Quad-core processing means four Velocity Engines and eight double-precision floating-point units for blistering performance of up to 76.6 gigaflops. That means you can manipulate mountains of images or miles of footage. Crunch enormous data sets. Encode HD video or high-bit-rate audio. All at speeds you never imagined possible.

    the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500, the industry’s fastest workstation graphics solution, for rapid-fire effects, 3D animation.

    so if u have any comments or anything else plz reply back

    LOL!! That's probably the Mac's biggest flaw. :mrgreen:

    They just can't convince game companies to port games over to the Mac. :mrgreen:

    MAC was popular 20 yrs ago when they came out with their APPLE II it was a break through :clap:

    Uhhh, I would go back and check those prices again. A Quadro costs a lot of money...a base dual proc G5 with the FX4500 being the only upgrade would cost more than $3k.

    16GB actually, 16GB max :)

    As for games... a lot what, big titles like warcraft, diablo, the sims, nwn, all have mac versions, though less than windows. I'm no gamer so I can't remember names and I don't really know what games are there anyway :)
