Ok, as some of you may already know, I am now the proud owner of a 2.7GHz dual processor PowerMac G5...

Full specs:

Water-cooled dual 2.7GHz PowerPC 970FX CPUs

2.5GiB dual channel PC3200 RAM

250GiB 7,200 RPM SATA HDD

ATI Radeon 9650 with 256MiB DDR SDRAM

16× SuperDrive

Airport Extreme


Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse


2×20" Apple Cinema Displays

Airport Express

JBL Creature II Speakers

I think that's everything... :confused:

If you're interested, take a look at my flickr photostream...

Oh, and yes, I absolutely adore it—it's everything I hoped for and far, far more :D

kind of on topic: i just got the jbl creature II speakers for my home pc. i posted here cuz i think you'd normally see these beauties on a mac. they look and sound great. the bass does get a bit 'wubbly' if you really crank it, but otherwise, i recommend these.

how much did i pay? $13 american for shipping and handling and 1200 camel cash c-notes. see? smoking IS good for you!

It's coming! After years of waiting, my PowerBook is on the way!

*15" 1.67 GHz SuperDrive


*128 MB VRAM

*80 GB Hard Drive

My first computer was a Mac, but then I (sadly) was forced to move to PC, so I've been out of the Apple loop for quite a while. Any certain thing(s) that is a must be done a new Mac? :P

I got an iMac G3... Blue, green or Bondi... I can't really tell the difference... runs Mac OS 9... crashed 3 times in the first week. But I love it.

Plus I bought an iPod G4 last August... about time for a new battery :(

I'm also planning on buying an iBook in the near future... but I just realized that I have to pay 8% sales tax... looks like I have some more saving to do.
