G3s DO NOT use DDR. they use PC100 SDRAM I think. Or PC133.

Anyway, GOOD LUCK :cry: with that G3. You'll need it.

I'd miss my athlon if I were you :p

I bought a mini when they came out, and loved it so much I bought a powerbook 2 weeks ago. I found Adium is very close to trillian

Adium isn't as good as Trillian :(

I think it's quite a bit better actually. I use AIM/MSN clients on Windows. Trillian just doesn't cut it for me.

Your G3 won't chug as much as people say. Don't get me wrong, you don't have the fastest machine in the world, but certainly no dog. The G3 is the same as the G4 aside from Altivec and DDR support. I used a 350mhz for quite awhile and it did the job. Add a gig of ram to her.

Logitech's wireless keyboards aren't officially supported on Macs. They will function like a normal keyboard, but there are no drivers as of yet. And I have yet to see a Logitech keyboard with the apple key.

Chad, my mxduo setup has an apple key/alt-option key on it, its simply under the "pc" key images/text.

and on that note, take a look-see here for mac osx software.

I just got my PowerBook 2 days ago. And it is SOOOOOO amazing. Wow, it is just no where near the same. Just WWOOOOWWW. Even if it ran windows the PowerBook itself is just built soo well. I made all of my friends jealous and they are going to get macs (probably powerbooks) for college. I can't believe it took me this long. When I got my previous computer (2.5 years) they were no good macs I could get for the money. They didnt have the mac mini yet. eMac was jsut a tad too much for what seemed like not enuff. but WOW. Expose is the most useful thing ever. i cant imagine using mac os with out it.

My experience is quite the opposite. Most of the Logitech keyboards that I've seen had both Windows and Mac keys. I don't know if the wireless ones do, but the wired ones I've seen at Wal-Mart and CompUSA do. In fact, they are the only company I know of that actually puts BOTH sets of markings on their keyboards.

Solution: Dump your girlfriend if she makes you so mad.

Then you can go home to your new computer girlfriend everyday. Geez.

Oh, if you install the big HD in the machine you can use Disk Utility to create a backup image of the small drive and then write that image to the big one. Got it?
