    Question MacBook -> PowerMac G5 or Mac Mini
    Hi MacHeads!


    first off: THANKS! Love this forum! <3 (you too! )

    Okay, let's get to it:

    I have a Late 2007 MacBook, and i love to play World Of Warcraft, but... My cute little white book just is'nt cutting it anymore.

    So im thinking about getting:

    A PowerMac G5
    or
    Mac Mini (the Nvidia 9400m version)

    just untill i can afford a Mac Pro

    Witch of those should i go for?
    eBay prices are very close...

    HELP!

    I say go with a power mac g5. They can be had on ebay for around 500 in great shape. The new mac pro will cost you 3k. Big difference. If you get a dual core 2.5 with 4 gb of ram you would be set for a while. Good luck.

    I was thinking about that too!

    And I actually found a quite nice one with 4,5 GB of ram today
    I'll be looking into that... THANKS!!!

    Since I am not really into WOW, does WOW even run on a Power PC Mac?

    I would not recommend buying a PowerPC Mac now. They are obsolete systems now, unsupported by Snow Leopard and most if not all new software.
