OK..so i've had a PC all my life and despised macs until about a week ago, when i realized that i'm on my fourth comp and they all freeze like a mofo. I can't stand it, so for college, i'll be getting a MAC, hopefully. I figure I should go with the G5, upgrade to the 1gb ram, but its so **** expensive, forget the monitor, that's a dream. When will the G5s have a price drop or the G4s get a price drop?

Well the current best deal for a mac g4 and under, i believe is the eMac... at the time i got my iMac it was the same.. but i wanted an iMac :D

Welcome to the world of macs :) price drop should occur sometime this summer... or december? It SHOULD be soon... but this year is strange but ide expect around mid july...

If you need advice on new macs this is the place to be :)

Im thinking it would be a price drop only for the g4s... g5s.. not till at LEAST winter. and its generally 100 or more $. Im not shur they made finding nemo on a g5.. i didn't think they had the machines built until a month or 2 ago.. and finding nemo took a while to make, at least 6 months.

no, i would not suggest buying vpc6, it does not render graphic cards or use it at all.
that and microsoft owns it now.
in a few months - a year there will be a new windows emulator that will render graphics and be alot better, and games will look nice. ide wait for that.
ps, its not microsoft owned either

Actually was even longer than that. Ellen Degenerous(sp?) was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno not to long ago....

"Well actually 4 years ago when the writers came up with the script they had me in mind as they were making the character she later did the voice of. "

The movie could have been made in 6 months, but the script was thought of over 3 years ago.
