Better off saving some money and getting an imac or Intel Mac Pro

  • Summary: Not very fast. Poor WiFi. Not compatible with Lion OSX. Noisy fan. Many of the newer apps (i.e. Chrome) do not run on this platform.

Below expectations

  • Summary: Yes, It works better than a G4 but it is heavy and HUGE. I had great expectations but am sorely disappointed. I am now using one at work and the 10.3.3 finder is still a dirty dog. Slow and clunky. Problems with sleep and shutdown. Crashes with Quark. And the font issues are disgusting! Photoshop still runs 5x faster on my Dell M60 Laptop workstation with 2 gigs of ram and 128 meg video card.

  • Summary: Apple use to be great back in the 80s and early 90s, they were the leaders and had the most powerful computers..... PC has took over where they left off, and has done wonderful things in the Computer world.... Mac is trying to catch back up....The apple has rotted to the core, no turning back.

  • Summary: The G5 does not support Virtual PC. If you want to run dual operating systems, do not buy this computer! Now I'm stuck running two computers!

Good, but not as powerful as a PC

  • Summary: OK, I feel I need to let all of you out there in on some information. MacWorld Magazines recently conducted a test pitting the G5 2GHz against an Athlon FX-51 and a Pentium 4 EE and the poor Mac was blown out of the water. The PCI-X in this machine is good for the future, and of course 8x AGP. Could be bundled with a better video card.
