Thought this might be an interesting thread. :)

Anyway, my ultimate machine will be a 15" PowerBook (preferably Series II G5, because by then all the bugs will be worked out, and by then i should be able to afford one), fully decked out with all the options, whatever they are by then.

After that? We'll see. :)

ultimate computer?

Well, for me the ultimate computer would be the human brain, modded with extra memory. :P

hrm, yes. and anti-vague circuits!

But with a vague emulator so when you need it, it's there.

Anything from Alienware or Falcon NW. Maybe even a Quad-Xeon machine.

Mac-wise, a duel G5 desktop decked out with RAM and at least a 9700PRO vid card for my gaming addiction! B)

Does Virginia Tech State University's G5 cluster count as one computer?

The only difference I would make to it would be to add 23" cinema displays to each node.

Now I just need 1100 friends to play network games with.

Either that or run up and down the ilses singing "LA LI LA LI LAAAAHHH...LA LI LA LI LAAAAHHHH"

:D

pipsqeek - they actually sold all the powermac G5's and upgraded them to Xserve G5s. :)

Oh, ok. I was being general (G5, Xserver G5) because I was not sure if they had done the upgrade yet.

Since WHEN did they upgrade them to Xserves??? I never heard about this!

They had planned on using the XServers from the very start, but Apple had not yet released the G5 XServers.

PC? www.go-l.com

Mac? PowerBook G5 Series II, 15", PowerBook Titanium Casing (well, the same look - doesn't have to be made of Ti)

Yeah


PC? www.go-l.com

Mac? PowerBook G5 Series II, 15", PowerBook Titanium Casing (well, the same look - doesn't have to be made of Ti)

I would have to say that this would be replacing one of my original components.
