  • I have 1.5 GB in my quad and ususally when it's idle and nothing open it uses about 512 MB of ram. It blows away my PowerBook at everything and I don't see why yours shouldn't you iMac. Then again I do stuff that is more processor intensive than ram…
  • Mine shipped last night and should be here tomorrow morning sometime.

  • My order was pushed back to on or before Dec 6. It was supposed to go on or before the Nov 18. The specs were stock except wireless package.
  • I forgot to add mine is stock except for the wireless package.
  • I'm supposedly shipping on or before the 18th. I ordered about 2 days after the announcement but Apple managed to lose part of my wire transfer so I don't think I got into line until about a week after. However most dates I've seen from other people…
  • I was in the same boat as you when I bought my 20" display after using my 12" Powerbook for about 2 years before. I thought I could never use this much space. Of course now I'm looking for a second monitor for a dual set up. So there is never too mu…
  • How well does everyone think the 6600 will handle X-Plane 8 and Halo at 1650x1050. I'm currently on the 5200 in my PBook and I can get most things up to medium in Halo @ 1024x768 and I would really like to see everything on high. After that most of …

  • Looking at the specs on Nivida's site it has listed Mac OS X support for a long time so I'm curious if this is true. I would love to test it out but I don't have $500 kicking around.

  • Quote: Originally posted by melgross Depends on how they have made them. They have either done the two separate cpu's on a die with little between them as Intel has done with some of theirs, or have taken the route of integrating them further as …
  • Quote: Originally posted by onlooker I just read it took a guy 40 minutes to download an episode of lost. There is hardly any content there, and it already is taking 40 minutes. I can't imagine this as being ready for a full load of entertainment…
  • Quote: Originally posted by audiopollution Buy. My thoughts exactly, they did beat expectations but just not enough. Just your typical overreaction from analysts. Tomorrows event should be big, which is why it's tomorrow and wasn't at Paris.
  • Apple's servers in general are the fastest I've seen on the net. I pulled the Tiger DVD image off their site in about 20-25 min on one of the two OC-3 lines my campus has at about 4 MB/s (yes byte and yes the disk image is legal). At the moment the…
