Who are these people?.... ...mostly a bunch of nutters who have scant regard for anyone who gets in their way
From - Future Hardware ยป 26th March 2004 - new G5's? There are now too many pointers to post 26 March to disregard this date for an upgrade. bet displays are updated (just bought one.....)javascript:smilie('')
This all makes sense. The bulk of the market (the US) gets Rev B around 1 Feb, whilst in lesser markets, like Aus/NZ, Rev B's are released post 26 March where the current upgrade offer soaks up remaining Rev A stock.
absolutely....... toooooo many times have I seen the spinning wheel of death on a 1GHz iMac. The problem is that it is both underpowered and overpriced. If it were just overpriced (by that I mean a premium price for a computer) then I'd just buy one because the initial price is only one part of the equation.
What started out as a simple snippet from Apple Australia, with the slimmest of bearing on possible G5 updates, has become a discussion somewhat bigger than I imagined. It suggestes to me that no one has any idea as to when updates might happen. The only thing we know is that there will be an update.
We are at the 'arse' (excuse the Australian colloquialism) end of the world and are a dumping ground for last seasons technology.
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....
