anyone know why seek times on ATA drives are so slow compared to SCSI? </strong><hr></blockquote>

Because they are cheap drives?

It's possible, but the ATA market won't bear those prices, whereas the SCSI market will.

why was it unfair? what are they supposed to do? write their own OS X native copy of the software titles? it's not their fault they only had OS 9 titles available.

Why was it unfair, you ask? Because people buy Macs to edit video. They don't buy them to run Premiere 6.0 or any other specific version of a specific app. They buy Macs to get a job done and the tool to do it is largely inconsequential unless it has a horrid and hindering interface or prohibitively expensive.

Let's see them throw some OS X, FCP 3 numbers (especially with the real-time effects) into the mix and see what happens.

I think it'd be very interesting to see these tests redone after we get the new PM's and/or when all these apps are available for OS X.

My signature irritates people. However, my cat can still jump a watermelon, and the Apollo is the next chip coming to the Powermac line. Although, at this point, I'd believe that Cyrix is the next...
