Thread: 900mhz G3 vs Intel
09-15-2003, 10:35 PM #1msettGuest900mhz G3 vs Intel
I just bought a new ibook, my first mac ever. I currently own a gateway P4 1.6 ghz laptop. I heard that a 900mhz G3 is not equal to pentium 900mhz, the G3 is faster. Is this true? What would my 900mhz mac be equal to?

we dont really bump in this forum and theres a reason that nobody has replied its because there really is no conversion rate between pentiums and g3-5 processors

Okie dokie. Is there even like a little estimate on what you could compare it to?

I wish there was a conversion rate for this. Unfortunetly, there is not. If you want my $.02, I'd say it like this : A Mac is an experience. Sure the clock cycles matter, but in what regard? Are you going to play games alot? If so, then maybe a higher end Mac would be needed. Are you going to use Word, or surf the net most of the time? Then ANY Mac will do. There really is no comparison when it comes down to it.
The ultimate thing about Macs, that I feel is better than PC's, is the experience, and the stability. My Mac rarely crashes, and my work PC bluescreens on a daily basis. My Mac is absolutely gorgeous to look at, and my many PC's are very bland, and ugly. My Mac performs the way I need it to, to get the stuff that I need to get done, done.
So in conclusion, to me it is more of a "Personal" conversion rate than a clock cycle converstion rate. Of course the faster the machine you can afford, with as much RAM as you can get in it won't hurt either.Emrys
