If you can't wait, you could buy a G4 upgrade (e.g. Sonnet Encore) for your G3 to hold you over. If you don't have a decent video card, a Radeon 7000 should do nicely.
I'm considering doing this myself.

On the using RAM idea - I was thinking that you could Sync all your pictures over - I have 3000 in iPhoto already so 256mb might not do the job
I agree. Hard drive. Sync it to iPhoto with albums, slide shows, put an iPod-like interface, and sell it for under $500 and you have a winner.

Windows platform.What a pitty.All that Research and Development money..at Apple.What gives at Apple???
Where would you rather have Apple spend their R&D money? On making a new board for the G4 with DDR, faster, bus etc. on a system that will only be sold for six months, or would...
I grew up in Nova Scotia, and we always called it pop.
There used to be a store that all they sold was pop, nothing else. Hundreds of different flavours. Black Cherry was my favourite. It was called "The Pop Shoppe".
Unfortunately, they went out of business.
These days I just call it sody-pop!

The table also says the G3 tops out at 450MHz, and the G4 starts at 1 GHz.
For everyone in this thread who plans on buying a PC:
What do you do with your computer?
Will the increased MHz make a difference?
What else about the PC will make your experience better?
Will anything make it worse?
Why did you buy a Mac in the first place?
Does your reason for using a Mac no longer apply?
Do you only want a PC because of its specs or do you truly believe it will make your life easier and happier?
Yes, but I would take that "feels like a mac, behaves like a Mac" literally. I would want a 100% money-back guarantee if I didn't like it, and a lower price. $3500 US is a lot of money (especially to a Canadian)
Actually if it "feels better than a Mac, behaves better than a Mac" I would switch too. But I get to be the judge if it feels and behaves better.

Why is it that all these pros who claim their computers are too slow, have time to post to this forum ten times per day? You'd think their machines would be tied up rendering, filtering, and what not?
I have a theory that most pros are busy working and...
