    Question Help with getting G4! ! ! !
    Hey.

    Im looking to switch, but i dont want an iBook because it wont work with core image when Tiger comes out. I also dont want a PowerMac G5, because its too expensive. And i do not want a iMac because i dont liek the look and they are not expandable. So i narrowed it down to a PowerMac G4. But i dont really know where to get a NEW one. I looked online, and everyone is used or refurbished. Does anyone know a online store that ships to canada that sells New or Open Box Powermac G4's?

    Thanks alot.

    Shaun.

    I was on the apple site an entered these specs for a single 1.8 G5. Its a little bit cheaper than the G4 on that site. This G5 is 1,918 Canadian dollars.

    256MB DDR400 SDRAM (PC3200) - 2x128
    80GB Serial ATA - 7200rpm
    Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 Ultra w/64MB DDR SDRAM
    Combo (CD-RW/DVD-ROM)
    Apple Keyboard & Apple Mouse - U.S. English
    Mac OS X - U.S. English


    This is the G4 off of powermax.com. It is 1,987.37 Canadian dollars.

    256 MB of RAM
    80 GB internal drive
    internal Combo Drive
    internal 56k modem
    includes keyboard and mouse

    Would the G5 be faster because of higher FSB, and because its jsut a G5 processor?

    What one would you get? I kind of want the G5 because its cheaper, and it will probably last longer.

    What do you think. Thanks for the quick reply mac mac!!

    Well, I know hardly anything about this, but... I'd say the G5. I mean, the RAM and hard drive is the same, AND it's faster, AND it's cheaper. I don't really see why you'd want the G4 over that.
