  • Well said timortis. Its a well known fact that the children in the average family have alot to say when it comes down to choosing computer. And the children aint going to pick the best quarkexpress machine... I wonder what all the "adult" people…
  • About PM at MW Paris, when did Apple start making hardware releases outside the US? About the "special event" in august... What event? Where? When? Im sceptical! Maybe well se some of Steve Jobs polo navel lint.
  • The 9700 is a AGP8X card. There aint no macs with AGP8X only AGP4X. We probably wont se a AGP8X mac until PC has moved to AGP16X or AGP32X
  • "I'd guess Maya Unlimited enjoys sales so low that porting the complete suite to OSX simply makes no business sense (since people who would buy it run "real" 3D workstations)." I rest my case about Maya sales... If for "real 3D workstations"…
  • "Apple's good GL implementation" As I understand it it is actually the open GL implementation and incompatability with the graphicards on the mac that causes the bad problems on maya. I read somewere a statement from aliaswavefront support to a …
  • Spooky Wrote: "But if Maya and Lightwave drop the mac becuase its hardware is too cr*p to make people switch enough to warrant the development costs it would do far more harm to the idea of 3D on a mac than the announcement of Maya on the mac did i…
  • Apple had better but their shit to gether. The mac 3D community is starting to limp. Maya has some major issues on mac that doesn't seem to be resolved. I guess well never se the Maya Ultimate version on mac. Lightwave users have the option to switc…
  • "Fred says, as of a few moments ago, that Apple has a number of plans for getting its powermac sales up and that management is keenly focused on getting sales back up to the 200,000 range." I bet that none of those plans involves either faster ma…
  • Well the upgrade in mhz doesn't really matter as long as apple stays with the current G4/chipset since the low bandwidth and bus speed will prevent any further speedbump from taking place. They may crank the G4 to 1.5+ghz but all this will generate …
  • Speedbump?!? You mean like one of those bumps in the road that keeps you from driving to fast? If this is what you mean you're probably right on. Seriously though. If there is a PM update it wont be a speedbump. Apple does…
  • "....all we want is an insanely powerful killer computer in a killer designed unit that is so fast we have to find ways of slowing it down just to be able to use it." Amen to that!!! They need to be so fast it'll give you a nosebleed just tryi…

  • [quote] Poll: What would you rather have? Big updates every 9-12 months Updates like this every 5-6 months Its more like: Big... eh...well... upgrades every 3-4 years Design upgrades every 6-12 month.
  • Someone said that this processor also was going into Sony Playstation 3. If this is the case the future of macgames might be real bright... I dont know but to me it would seem the step might not be so long. Another advantage of this might be that IB…
  • What if this processor isnt even for macs? -The Devil
  • Still kickin eh? Feed another bullet into the chamber and finnish it off. Die motorola, DIE!
  • 19" imac??? Isnt imac supposed to be the cheap mac alternative? The 17" isnt very cheap and I can imagin what a 19" imac would cost.
  • Another thing... OSX has really been beaten into our brains the last few expos (New York, Paris, and now saybold). All these expos has been about almost nothing else than OSX. I think that the next expo leaves more room for other things than OSX, so…
  • >>>>>....but wouldn't new processors mean new cases? <<<<< Well the new PM case is just too damn ugly.
