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.
