Power Mac G5 a 'superhero assistant'
October 10, 2003 - 13:37 EDT "Having Apple Computer's new Power Mac G5 around the office is like having a superhero assistant," writes Jon Fortt in his review of the machine for the Mercury News. "If you've got lots of graphics or video heavy-lifting to do all at once, it's amazing. If you're just moving documents around, then there are less muscle-bound machines that are probably more in your price range."

Is that like driving a hot sport car (enter any brand here), but you can only drive the speed limit. But you know you have the speed if you need it.

uummm no, it's more like driving a Semi Truck that does 0-60mph in 2.6 seconds with a top speed of 220mph and no speed limit :eek: maybe not

It's also saying that if you're just shuffeling documents, get a slower machine that's more in your price range. But I guess you should always just go with what's in your price range huh...

No, you may want to power but don't use it that often. Then there are those that need the power and use all the time.

I am not translating the news article.

heh this isn't any new innovative thought, that this article said.

If you're using a computer primarily to word process, chat, and look at porn, you probably don't need one of the fastest computers on the market today.

"duh?"

hehe, I want my own column so I can restate the obvious and get paid for it.
