hushypushy said:it's great for people that want a mac. other than that, it sucks. for one, it's a mac, which ineherently puts it pretty damn far back. it also has a slow processor, 256mb ram and a crappy videocard. i do give them credit though for squeezing USB2.0, firewire, a DVI port, and ethernet on there. for a mac, it aint half bad.
i wonder what the upgrading oppurtunies for that are....
This is MAC marketing. I *own* a P4 3.0ghz AND I own a G4 1.25ghz. When I say "The P4 absolutely stomps the G4 in every conceivable action by an incredibly wide margin" I mean it. The G4 feels like a P3. It was common knowledge around the time that Apple started with these "benchmark claims" that it was proven that they chose some of the most insignificant benchmarks (like the time to process one particular type of action in Photoshop) and the G4 was .001% faster and OH MY GOD THE G4 IS FASTER THAN A P4! Believe me, in real-world use the G4 is no P4.1.45 Ghz g4 is roughly equal to a 3 Ghz p4
...if you mean willy then yes but still....it was twice as fast...Does your 1.5ghz p4 happen to be the crappy model (forgot which one)?
and NO, because I always keep my systems nice and clean , and have next to nothing in the startupand did you have 1 million programs loaded in your system tray and don't know what msconfig is? Never defrag your drive and click Yes evertime something pops up in a brower?
