Apple’s new dual-core Power Macs. My dream machine has arrived. Too bad I’ll have to continue dreaming about it.
I piled on the options to a new quad 2.5Ghz Power Mac G5 and I came up with a price of $22,930. The bulk of which is the premium paid for 16GB of RAM and two 30” displays. Pretty sweet little machine. The only thing I didn’t add was a fibre channel card. Not sure how I would ever use one anyway.
It doesn’t say anything about needing to store it in its own refrigerator so it must be meltdown proof. Sure would keep the cubicle nice and toasty when the office gets a bit cold. These should be the last PowerPC Power Macs Apple will release with the dawn of Intel Macs just around the corner.
Of the new goodies Apple introduced today, Aperture has the most appeal to me. I’m not a pro, but a lot of the features they’ve included in this app would come in very handy when dealing with large quantities of photos. Now to convince the controller of my currency that I need to spend $500 on a piece of software.
