[quote] If PC users are so happy with their wintel boxes, why are they speding so much time on Apple discussion boards? <hr></blockquote>

Because some of us "think differently" enough to consider all the possible options for doing their jobs better, faster, cheaper, whatever, rather than sticking blindly to dogma and ideology...

In my case, because Apple bought Shake, killed it for Windows, and I want to see what their going to offer in exchange... At the moment, it seems to be a slap in the face and a kick in the b*llocks.

Were I to consider buying some Macs for my company to run shake on, the performance Apple offers simply doesn't make it viable. And I know all about the two for one offer, still not worth it...

I don't think anyone is going to ban you for having different taste in computers, but the s-word might get you a frown from the admins.

Honestly, i still don't get what a PC user is doing in an Apple disscussion forum. If you don't have anythign to prove, or a chip on your shoulder, then why do you come in to apple boards? Looking for a little validation for post-purchase depression?

As for the fact that you're not an angry person, i would tend to disagree - Wintel is an act of anger.

I've always maintained my position about PC users - don't bother us. It holds true for mac users who've switched to PC- don't bother us, go flaunt your inferiority complex somewhere else... Doesn't M$ have a discussion board yet?

I think that you people don't get it. The people complaining about Apple in these forums are the people who care the most about their company. They are complaining because they know that if they don't release good enough specs people will never buy macs and will buy a pc that is alot cheaper. Come on people, for more than 3000$ you get only a dual 1,2. Sure for photoshop and rc5 it's fast but what about the rest, 3d, games, video? Stop fooling yourselves people, its not worth that much money. I agree, 10.2 is by far the best os. But paying 129$ for it is enough, i dont have to pay more for a computer that is tech wise more than a year old, because it can run 10.2. The mac went from being the fastest with the intro of the g4 to dog slow. Ok moto is to blame cuz of its poor results but apple could put new technologies in their mobo that aren't dictated by the cpu. like agp 8X, firewire2, ata133. I'm tired of apple charging us more because we love them so much.

If anything these specs are boring, but come on...they are not end of the Mac world numbers. But seriously Mac is not exiting anyone with these numbers, so they will probably exite people with a really cool case...that is Apple's style.

Actually, 333 doesn't go into 1.25 Ghz very well. Unless there are new clock multipliers that work at 3.75x, it appears unlikely that 1.25 is a real number. I'm sure someone over at ThinkSecret did the same calculations and came to the same conclusion.

266 * 4.5 = 1197 (~1.2)
333 * 3.5 = ~1166
333* 4 = ~1333

Take your pick....

Dudes, do you notice on how these are all duals? I mean its a deal and a steal you get a dual processor for just a little more than a windoze machine, go compare prices for a dual windoze machines the prices are much more on the same field then. I wish I just had enough money I'd get the dual 867 probably, so that I can sit at home and mess around on message boards even faster people lighten up

Mac hasn't killed shake for PC yet, acctually.

Windows and Linux system requirements
Â*\t550MHz Pentium III, Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon processor
Â*\tWindows NT 4.0 (with Service Pack 5 or later), Windows 2000 (with Service Pack 1 or later), or Linux (with glibc 2.1 or later; for example, Red Hat 7.1 or 7.2)

Requirements seem pretty light too.

a.c.,

let us forget about how happy pc user are on their wintel boxes. it is not the issue here.

yes, apple could do all kinds of designs on the interconnects between different devices on the mobo and increase the performance. in addition, you could even optimize compiler to increase performance as well. but apple are not doing any of them, at least from what is happening. by the way no matter what, you won't avoid upgrading the clock, which is the easiest way to do. sj maybe right that once apple could get jaguar out they could focus on the hardware. but i really did not see any execuses for apple not doing hardware at the same time with their os.

by increasing the clock, you _have_ to upgrade the interconnect interfaces, such as memory bus, or peripheral bus. it is a given, otherwise, it does not make any sense to upgrade clock.

yes, motorola is doing chip for apple and the overhead on it is hugh. then cut it loose or do it yourself as long as apple wants to use chip different from intel.

Why must our precious little machines be cursed with the Mhz myth? It's numero uno on my hate list. And, besides, if they were crappy like people think; hey baby, it's not the Mhz count, it's how you use it. I think a cheap dual powermac would kick---I may change my iMac plans and get a dual 867...hehe.

I think most of the people complaining about this speedbump never intended to buy a new Powermac in the first place.
They want a sort of value for money allthough they'll never use the entire value. 50 % at most, that means even a emac is to blassing fast for them and they stick to thier G4 400 for a couple of years.

hehe shannyla, you can get around shake, but you can't get around linux? haha I mean you should check out After Effects or somethen if all you use is the standard set of tools for shake

ooooo I can do gaussion blurs fasters than ever...

You can't say you don't use shake till you get into scripting and programming for it. That in there lies why its so cool, and that which I might add is way easier on a mac or linux

I'm not sure anymore but the bus multiplier are this, no ?

133,33 x 6,5 = 866,64 = 867 MHz
133,33 x 7,5 = 999,97 = 1 GHz
166,66 x 6,0 = 999,96 = 1 GHz
166,66 x 7,5 = 1249,95 = 1.25 GHz (MacMinute)
133,33 x 9,0 = 1199,97 = 1.2 GHz (Think Secret)

FALSE.

Here in America, a Dell Precision Workstation 530 with comparable specs to the dual 1 GHZ PowerMac G4 costs $5,509-$2,510 MORE than the PowerMac. With the money you save, you can get a Cinema Display! OUCH! And don't even get me started on the Xeon's slow performance and Windoze XP.............

The question here is not whether a bus utilizes SDRAM or DDR. Nor is it relevant how many processors a given machine may utilize. The question ultimately is: will Apples new hardware convince PC users to switch to a Macintosh?

Lets take a look at the RUMORED Apple hardware for US $1699:
  • 2 Motorola Processors
  • Memory
  • Hard Drive
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Macintosh OSX
  • Video Card
  • SuperDrive (DVD-RW)
  • Modem
  • Ethernet

Now, lets take a look at a DELL Dimension 4500 for US $1247:
  • 1 Intel Processor
  • Memory
  • Hard Drive
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Windows XP Home Edition
  • 17 CRT Monitor
  • Video Card
  • DVD-RW Drive
  • Harmon Kardon speakers
  • Modem
  • Ethernet
  • 6 Months Free Internet

Because of certain AMBIGUITIES regarding processor speeds and RAM types/speeds, Ive eliminated any hardware references to SDRAM, DDR, MHz, etc. Its also assumed that the video cards and Hard Drives are equivalent in both cases (pending tomorrows announcement).

Now, looking at these numbers, can someone tell me how Apple is going to convince a potential switcher to pay US $452 more for Macintosh tower that does NOT include a CRT, speakers and internet?

Acctually you're close to right there - the main reason I bought the Mac was the user friendly aspect - which M$ hasn't come anywhere near matching. Even MacOSX, which i find less User friendly than OS 9, is more freindly than XP.

However, you're not totally right, as the G3 I bought still performs fine. Mac Users ugprade their machines on average every 4 to 5 years - PC users upgrade on average every 2 years. Performance over time seems to be better for mac users, I don't know why.

No one is asking you to drop your PC, dude, no one cares. If you want to justify your purchase, i'm sure there are support groups for insecure PC users. As for linux, its not so bad, you do need some programming experience to get it to run really well, but some installers take care of all the work for you.

I keep coming back to the fact that no one missed you when you switched to PC. I'm sorry no one threw together an intervention party for you, but you can stay there.

It's really looking like we're headed towards DDR 166 on the high end models me thinks. This could be somewhat awkward.

And BTW, speed is important to me as well, and no it's not a penis thing, K? K. I can assure anyone here who claims that "speed doesn't matter" that apple doesn't feel the same. Just take a look around Apple.com to find a ludicrous amount of words like "fast," "blazing," and "speed."

I'm probaly going to buy the dual 1.25 if it happens tomorrow, but I'd certainly feel a lot better about the purchase if it was faster for $3300. And it sure as fek better not howl like a banshee like the previous El Capitains (I've suspected that the new case designs have more to do with keeping quiet then cooling a monster.)

This is exactly the point I am trying to make. They've been moving the proccessor speed up but doing nothing - or very little - to boost the FSB speed. Now they have to play catch up with the MLB, bring the bus speed up so that the faster cpus will have somewhere to put all that data they crunch

Why do people complain about the speed of CURRENT HARDWARE\tin the FUTURE HARDWARE forum? Specifically the day before new FUTURE HARDWARE is rumored to become CURRENT HARDWARE?

I mean, who cares if the current Dual GHZ machine is too slow for you if a new machine is supposed to arrive tomorrow?

And how can anyone complain about FUTURE HARDWARE if it hasn't yet become CURRENT HARDWARE?

In reality a Dual 800 MHZ machine could run faster than a Dual GHZ if the 800 MHZ machine had significantly greater bandwidth. Or a different processor. Or whatever the hell you care to think about.

Anyone complaining about tomorrow supposed offerings is just being idiotic. No offense intended.

Well, a truly similar Dell costs $1658. Seems good at first, but Apple gives you a DVD-RW drive instead of an inferior DVD+RW drive, all of the iApps, far better tech support (believe it or not, Dell's US consumer tech support is from INDIA and keeps you on hold for HOURS), a faster processor, a superior OS, gigabit Ethernet, 4 FREE expansion slots (the Dell only has 1), 64-bit PCI instead of 32-bit PCI, and much more extras that Dell can't match.

Could the new Power Macs have 200 mhz bus (400 DDR)? That would be:
200*5 = 1000
200*6 = 1200

That would work very well accept for the 867 mhz model which will probably be only 133 mhz ram.
With that bus speed the Power Macs would be extremely fast and be able to compete with PC's, and maybe over take them.
