Is it really that much of a boost? <hr></blockquote>I have a B&W PowerMac running at 350 Mhz with 384 MB of RAM and a 6 GB HD. When I went over to my Campus Store to check out some PowerMac G4's I could not believe the difference. Scrolling was like scrolling in OS 9. Window resizing in the finder was really fast, just a tad off from actually moving at the sametime as the window; even IE window resizing was extremely fast. I could not believe it. Even when you load Apple.com, the quicktime movie of the iMac does not slow the system down that much as it does with my B&W. Also, when you move a window at full screen, such as an IE window, it moves right with the cursor. In conclusion, my B&W machine handles window reszing quite well I must add, but the window resizing in IE is just terrible. In addition, scrolling on my machine is smooth, but not as smooth as the G4 at the Campus store.
By the way, the Campus Store was demoing a Quicksilver PowerMac running at 733 Mhz. <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />
