Apple Australia trade in offer ending 26 March 2004 may give some clues as to G5 upgrade in Australia?? ...long wait.... [URL=http://www.apple.com.au/promo/tradeupg5/]
well yes I love my pismo.... but the wife (home) gets that one (the wallstreet is getting on) will see what happens on 24th.
thanks for the replies
I am looking to move from my much loved Pismo to something with a little more grunt. The Pismo is okay but I need more power for 3D modelling and more screen real estate. G4 Powerbook or G5 Powermac? Does Vectorworks utilise the power of a G5 or will I not notice any tangible benefits over a G4. I have a friend who just got a Dual 2GHz G5 and was a bit unconvinced by the claims of speed when using Vectorworks. anyone....
In some ways it makes sense. M$ gets to sell XP at the same time as Office in the 'hope' that the wayward see the light. Cripples VP so that the user experience is less than on a PC and blames the whole thing eventually on emulation difficulties. And then casually suggests that we'd all be better of using a PC
yeah, I know, big call talking up apple works! but I'm still using OS9 and Apple Works 5. Yep...I've seen OSX Apple Works and 'urrgh' is a word that comes to mind. But for basic letters, reports it isn't too bad. I work with someone else who uses M$ Word on PC and I'd have to say the letters I produce are far superior to his (In terms of appearance). Text and graphics both look better in printed form.
Well lets hope they do it then! The only problem would be if they did it before Open Office or Apple has a viable option. Personally I still find Apple works does most tasks reasonably well. And in some cases superior to M$ especially where simple graphics are included.
Was just musing..... Now that M$ have Virtual PC bundled with XP and Office, will they sometime abandon Office for the Mac, suggesting that Mac users run Office through VP and XP?
....WHAT?...'just want to draft, then use Vectorworks', that may well have been true when Vectorworks was Minicad...or prior to that when Claris Cad was around. But as an architectural package, I often get Archicad users saying to me, 'you can do that on Vectorworks'. And its about half the price. The only thing I would have to say is that the referencing is...well...crap...but I have used an earlier version for a multi million dollar commercial project with 40 separate...
The Wallstreet had some sort of down load from Apple which was meant to reset the battery. i tried this but alas I was a bit too late. Now my Wallstreet is chained to the wall..... Does anyone know if there is the same sort of thing-a-me for a Pismo? I've looked but i cant find anything.Pismo
