i think I've found the info.: <a href="http://support.apple.com/specs/powermac/Power_Mac_G5_Early_2005.html">http://support.apple.com/specs/powermac/Power_Mac_G5_Early_2005.html</a><br><br>i included a Buy it now price, but now i am thinking that i set it too high since i have the older model of the dual 2.3 GHz. oops. i guess it won't get bought now. <br><br><br><br>
So what are they going for now ? Dual CPU G5s ? I have one.<br><br><br>One point I make to my students about buying a Mac or a PC is that the Mac resale value is probably twice (%-wise) than a PC.... I mean a 3-4 yr old Mac will still fetch some decent cash !! ......and 3-4 yr old PC is ......<br><br><br><br>landfill material !! <br><br>David (OFI)
i just tried to reduce my Buy it now price and and bid was made before i could hit submit. dang.<br><br>nobody is going to buy it now at $1,150. ah well. i'll have to wait for the auction to play out.<br><br>btw, starmillway is the high bidder. you think that's Kate?<br><br>
With the shift to Intel processors that rule doesn't apply so strongly anymore unless it's an Intel model. I think we're good for many years now by buying Intel. The PPC chips came out in 1994, the last ones were 2006. I recommend my customers not to buy a PPC of any kind for long term use as they are buying into at least 2 year old technology that will not be supported by 10.7, if not 10.6. The G5' were just a stop gap between the G4's and Intel. After seeing the water cooling I was not even interested in getting one. You might want to get rid of yours while the getting is good. The G4's weren't going any higher Mhz-wise for a few reasons, and Apple needed something to fill the gap while they worked on Intel based stuff. So they introduced the G5 heat tunnels.<br><br>My .02¢<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game
