Ti667 vs. iMac700

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Which would be faster, given the Ti has a 133 bus ( i think).

I'm leaning towards the iMac only because it seems like the better value. Even though I think I may need the portability of a laptop.

Well, don't forget that the laptop has a 4200 RPM drive, making it slower in opening apps, and accessing stuff.

The two high-end PowerBook drives are 5400 RPM, I believe.

I personally am waiting for a faster PowerBook before I buy one. It has to be 867 MHz or faster for me now.

Only the 48GB drive is 5400rpm (and so is IBM's new 60GB)

The speed difference really wouldn't be noticeable if there is any.

If you don't need the portablility definetely get the imac. You'll get a much better graphics card, faster hard drive and a better screen for a lot less money.

The TiBook has a higher resolution (and support for even higher res on an external display). It also supports dual displays (not just mirroring like iMac).

I'm torn: I love iMac but would really, REALLY appreciate more screen real estate.

I don't think it's too bad.

I love my 667 I had another monitor on it but I had to give it to my parents (there monitor said no more). I loved the extra space I had with it, I really do miss it. What makes it worse is I love the size of the LCD on the laptop that a CRT looks like a waste of desk space but its cheaper and I like the high resolutions. I had a Viewsonic PT770 or something like that.

Which equals a couple more channels in the mix window in Pro Tools. ROCK!
What, me worry?
