PowerMac G5 Quad

Recommended Posts

It became his business when it was posted on an open forum.

Kid, have you noticed any difference between the performance of the Powermac quad, and the imac 800mhz, when browsing the web and making newsletters?

Yes and No, When i boot up the macs the iMac took much longer while the Quad was quicker, and loading safari etc. Browsing the web its self did not have any difference because it depends on the internet connection, making newsletters were a bit faster. :)

Agreed. Why hasn't Apple released a oct-core machine yet? I'm certain that Mac Mail is multithreaded!

I work with macs all day long, the more powerful the better. Even if he only uses it to burn a dvd from idvd the encoding will be far quicker and therefore less time is wasted waiting around. Give it a year or two and all home pc's sold be be as powerful in not alot more so.

Download the free version of Maya and put the computer to good use.

I dont think anyone is jealous, they just cant understand why that much money was spent on something not needed.

THANK YOU - finally someone understands what I'm talking about.

am_fek, if he didn't want my opinion he wouldn't have posted this in an open forum. You can't possibly expect everyone to post something positive. He's lucky I'm not some Windows fanboy screaming "OMG WINDOEZ RULZ". I'll try to explain my point to you again - I suggest you read this carefully since you obviously didn't read any of the other posts properly. He wants to make a newsletter, chat with his friends and do homework - he does not need anything higher than an iMac at the most for that sort of thing. Yes, it's his parents' money, but there is absolutely no need to buy a 14-year-old a ~$5000 computer, therefore it's a waste and he's spoilt.

Google for the student trial version. I think that's free as long as you don't use it produce anything you are going to make money off.

It's known as the Personal Learning Edition. It puts a big watermark on all your viewports and renders. Also, you're not able to open work created in the PLE in the full version of Maya.

You're right - just like any other person on Neowin.

Oh wait, Chad also has the power to suspend your account ;)

hahaha, nice. Chad is right though, I mean if the guy wants a G5 Quad, let him, its not for us to decide what he will use it for.

As applemoto, I'm still waiting on those pictures... Be sure to take off the side panel :D

I personally think the purchase is an overkill, but hey - if the kid is happy with it and it gets him bragging rights - gl to him.
