Below expectations

Amazon
11 April 2004
  • 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!

Good, but not as powerful as a PC

Amazon
5 January 2004
  • 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.

My G5 runs slow

Amazon
22 December 2003
  • Summary: I have worked with Apple computers all my life and had a chance to test the G5 in different configurations at work. There is a long list of reasons why people need a computer and near the bottom of that list should be: because it looks sexy.
