Macs..

Oh wait...I have a G3 too.

Good deal for sure! Mine was $100 which is probably over priced (got it from my brother) but it has 512MB memory and P-shop, Illustrator, Quark...tons of sh**. So it'll do till I get a G5.

Update: I had osx installed from a guy with an iBook this morning, that was DOG slow. This thing has 2mb vram, and all of the gui in OSx runs in OpenGL (same thing as 3d games). SO we put on OS9.2 and it'* fast! Wow didn't think a computer from 97 would be this fast. Got iTunes 2 on it, and it'* good to go almost. Just need a VNC setup and another Hard drive. (I've got a hookup for a 20 giger accross the hall most likely!)

I have a 2.26 Ghz P4 (533 bus) desktop. with a Geforce 4 ti 4200, 512 rdram, tv tuner, flat panel monitor monsoon flat panel speakers yadda yaddda yadda...

And i also have a pentium M (centrino without intel wireless setup) with 512 ram, a radeon mobility 9000, built in 802.11 a/b/g mini pci card, 14" xga screen, full keyboard, cdrw/dvd-rom modular drive, floppy modular drive/usb drive (with cable). 4-5Hr battery life on wifi with decent program usage.

This is a computer for fun. I might do linux on it, but it'* gonna be an mp3 server i'm gonna just vnc into or something, and a mac if i ever need it for a mac product. Macs don't suck, i used to think that but they are just diffent. I like a lot of things abuot it, and i don't like some things about it. OSX and XP can be very close to each other as well.
