A good deal

Guitarshredder69, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: At once you will want to upgrade the memory. I recommend 4 GBs as this is the max. Also you will want to upgrade the hard drive and place a second high capacity drive in the spare bay. There are 2 hard drive slots.

Sure it's fast, but do you want a Boeing 747 in your room?

  • Summary: On Apple's web site it says "Designed for whisper-quiet operation." Well, *maybe* it is *designed* for it. But it doesn't *achieve* it. This thing is loud! I'd like to know if anyone with the 2.5GHz model knows whether that is quieter, because maybe that is what I should buy instead.

A great not-so-new computer

Drift Racer, Amazon

  • Summary: First off, for an 8 year old machine, this thing runs exceptionally well. I bought a dual-core G5 just a few months ago, and once I installed leopard on it, its been running flawlessly ever since. Speed for basic tasks is completely fine, and it handles some light audio encoding pretty well.
