  • Why haven't Apple added all these options to control panels/preferences? There seems to be lots of examples like this one.
  • No distortions or other problems that I have noticed. I paid GBP£205 (inc VAT) each for them. Unfortunately, at 1280x960 they only run at 75Hz, although at 1280x1024 they can run at 85Hz- this seems to 'squash' the image though! I am currently…

  • I though I was the only one using the plain piece of paper taped down as a mousemat!
  • I've been playing with mine since Friday. Took photos this morning and put up a web page a second ago- http://micklem.com/pmg5.html The machine seems a little more shaky than on my iBook- have had some apps crash (Safari several times, VLC see…
  • Quote: Originally posted by zounic The WireLess Keyboard is actually much smaller than the wired one (and I like that). It's the same configuration as the actual one without the plastics around it. Just the keys. It looks like it takes the same v…
  • I just hope they don't do something stupid and put out a single 3Ghz model (like they did with the G4 at 733MHz, after having a dual 500 as previous top model). I think the dual 2 will probably be generally faster than a 3Ghz Single, as OS X is so g…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Henriok Why stop at DDR400 MHz? Because anything faster is MUCH more expensive. It is better to have 4x as much RAM, than 1.5x the speed for the same price.
  • Quote: Originally posted by KingOfSomewhereHot .... otherwise , when they come out with 3G, the next step down would be the 2G and that just seems like too big of a gap What is stopping them from releasing a line-up with intermediates? I e…
  • Quote: Originally posted by opus Steve said this case has room to grow in his keynote. My only question is how fast of a CPU (taking in account FSB/memory speed) can this motherboard design actually handle? I doubt we will see higher RAM spee…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Smircle Uhm, here it is still 2003, so three years would mean they started in 2000. Sounds about right. It's a Friday, ok? Yes, it makes more sense now!
  • Quote: Originally posted by Big Mac You think Apple's going to jump a whole gigahertz at once? That's a nice fantasy, but it simply won't happen. I also see no reason for an intermediate update. 12 months from June puts it 9 months after the …
  • Quote: Originally posted by jeromba 6468 on a [email protected] with Safari v85.5 Interesting that this is faster than the DP 1.25GHz with Safari 1.0- it scored 7950.
  • I find it interesting that Apple didn't start working with IBM sooner. 3 years puts it around mid-2001. The G4 came out in mid 1999, and didn't get past 500MHz (the speed it was originally announced at) for 18 months. It took Apple another 6 months …
  • Quote: Originally posted by Dustbunny If i want to be sure of a seat at the Keynote, how much time before the beginning should i be there? Does anybody here has previous Keynote experience? My badge (cheap paper one) has K marked at the bottom…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Alex London I wonder if this means i'll be able to touch one soon, we don't have any Apple Stores like the States yet. Still going to wait for rev. B though. If you go to the Micro Anvika on Tottenham Court Rd, nea…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Ebby My dad brought up an interesting point. G4's were only sold in the US for a while because the government considered a computer that could calculate 1 gigaflop a supercomputer and prohibited it's export. Nope. …
  • Quote: Originally posted by ryukyu What about on the other models? PC2700 will not work in the 1.8 and 2.0GHz models.
  • The POWER chips are designed for high-end servers and workstations. Why would they make a derivative to be used in desktops and small blade servers, only to then use them in a high-end server or workstation? As other posts have mentioned, the 970…
  • Quote: Originally posted by markiv Thanks a lot guys. I would probably go for 2*256 and have a total of 768 MB RAM, maybe later during the semester I would go fo a higher upgrade. I believe this is a false economy, as you will have to throw …
