I just swapped out my OEM ATI Rage 128 video card for an ATI Radeon 7000 Mac Edition. This is a Blue & White system that is now running a Powerlogix G4 550 ZIF upclocked to 600 MHz, and Panther 10.3.2. I keep OS 9.2.2 on its own partition to use for Classic, as well as the occasional OS 9 boot. After the video card upgrade, all attempts to boot from OS 9, whether from my partition, or OS 9.1 install CD, result in a gray screen. Never see the Happy Mac! I swapped the...
I think Apple is pedaling as fast as they can. How could they move faster than the state of the art allows? Quad processor machines?
I hope they don't. I would rather add a top-quality speaker system and preserve individual component integrity. Apple is pro equipment. A display should just be a display, and not try to be a sound system as well. Otherwise, you are heading in the direction of the Media Center PC-a heap of mediocre junk that can't decide what it is for.
I know Formac's contrast ratio is better, but why would the widescreen format affect brightness and pixel response? I am still suspicious of Apple Displays from having owned "The Grey Whale," a 21" CRT Apple Studio Display. 3 excruciating shipments to Apple for "repairs" in the first 3 months of ownership, followed by a full refund of my mis-spent money when it still wasn't fixed & the carrier dropped it in the street, cracking the case. Plus-Other major displays have...
They (1.8 single owners) are cryin' a river over at Apple Discussions right now... http://discussions.info.apple.com/We...m.10@.599c9dd5 Personally, I didn't buy a G5 yet, because I thought the only one worth buying was the dual 2.0, and it was out of my price range. The 1.6 & 1.8 didn't look like any kind of bargain. Also, I was waiting for Rev 2, having been thru this before with my Rev 1 B&W. I can't believe anyone would think Apple planned to rip off its...
Thanks, applenut, I figured this out at the same time you were posting, and edited my post to reflect my error.
Every time I try to load this site (ipodrocks.com), I get a screen that tells me I need to update Quicktime. No way I need to update QT if I'm running Panther with all updates. The page redirects to an Apple QT update page where the latest update is for Jaguar 10.2.8. ???? Doh! Never mind... I had removed Quicktime Plugin.Plugin from Library/Internet Plugins so downloaded movies would open QT Player rather than opening within Safari. Replacing the plugin made...
MacRumors, in an article titled "Apple, PPC 980, and Upcoming G5s?" presents some pretty exciting speculation on the next Powermac Rev we may see at MWSF. Here is the link: http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2003/...29165235.shtml
I bought an Adaptec USB2 Connect PCI card. It supports Mac OS X, but only at USB 1 speeds. Why? Adaptec's website says Apple does not supply USB2 drivers with its OS. I hope/assume Panther will fix this situation, since G5s already have it! Any info?
I want that rumored 30 inch Apple Studio Display.
