This is all nice, but it is academic. Those for whom third party PPC code remains the operating environ will be best served by their current PPC macs. Howver the question of upgrading becomes interesting, and it all depends on where you're coming from. For example. I have an 867Mhz Powerbook. If I loaded my copy of CS1 onto an Intel book to run on Rosetta, how would the performance compare? And not to be discounted is the possibility of running an X86 windows...
No doubt that a G5 will be faster on PPC code than Rosetta on an Intel Mac. However, I wonder how much real difference there would be between a G4 powerbook (with it's starved FSB) and a nicely spec'd MacBook Pro?
Not true, I knew, and said so. OK, not specifically about iMacs, but about any PPC mac in '06. I recall counciling people, and getting criticised for it, here and elsewhere, that unless they needed a new mac for work, it was best to wait for Intel versions. And though modesty precludes me celebrating the fact too much, I was, of course, right. These Intel macs will fly on Apple's first party wares. And Apple has set a good precedent by getting them out early,...
Hate to say I told you so, but I did, here and elsewhere I recall telling people with any sort of servicable mac (anything from the last 3-4 years) to just wait... On the plus side, your G5 macs should continue to run "current" versions of Apple's wares without issue...
Not being expert in these things, I'm willing to differ to the more informed tastes of the architectural community. However, I have been in enough buildings that take me somewhere, both large public buildings, and small public buildings, and a few private ones, to be able to say that the pictures of this building don't suggest to me that it goes anywhere of interest. I am free to think to this, perhaps out of ignorance, though I still don't think the house has much...
I think you all ought to note that the town, NOT Jobs, acted in bad faith (according to the judge.) I'm not sure someone like Jobs buys a property without doing his due dilligence, and so if indications were that the house could be torn down, why would Jobs be expected to offer any more than what he has? Help to share the relocation costs for anyone willing to transport the building sounds reasonable given that this building was never a public building from it's...
Yep, original 867Mhz, USB1.1, VGA-out 12" PB. See, can't connect a new iPod at full USB2 speed, and Apple dropped FW, I use a dual input LCD (can't use DVI only). It's OK. Everything still works. Could be faster, but running office, browsing the web, a fooling with PS, it goes well enough...
Relative yes, but not so imprecise. Apple will sell some PPC macs at least 'till '07. I think they're going to have all their major products on Intel by the end of O7, and the majority by mid '07. A legacy mac PPC may stick around however... Add a three year extended warrantee period, that means support till 2010. However, software update cycles are starting to stabilize around 18-24 months. Assuming we see retail versions of dual binary OS next year, and first...
You're ignoring something rather major. New software tends to be installed at the time of purchase, or shortly thereafter. The buying cycle of computers means that software companies are under far more pressure to add features and improvements to their software than they are to cater to installed base. Hardware installations tend to happen in an effort to boost software performance. People just don't buy CS2, or shake, or FCP 5 to use (heavily) on their 3-5 year old...
I don't see where any manufacturer is legally responsible to support any out of warrantee product. And warrantee support only includes such hardware (replacement parts) and software as was officially supported at the time of release. You are entitled to support of the OS versions that shipped with your machine, nothing after, and only for the warrantee period of that machine. Applecare offers three years extended warrantee. The transition will be complete in two years....
