    We've got a 4+ year old Dual 1 Ghz G-4 that kicks ass very nicely, runs PTle to the max on tracks without breaking a sweat, Tracktion like it was idling, and is a long long way from being obsolete.

    Same with my even older G-4 550Mhz Titanium powerbook.

      The nighmares refer to the computers though both the wife and daughter can also be nightmares upon occasion.

      I'm going to convert both computers to Linux in the near future and so get away from all the ad/spyware they accrue because they are not careful where they go on the internet.

        You get what you pay for.

          Sometimes. Other times you pay too much for the item and pay again every time there's an upgrade. MAC is that way with hardware. Windows is that way with software. The consumer loses in both instances. Kind of liken it to Pro Tools. Buy it now for thousands and when they upgrade, buy it again for even more thousands.

            I currently use a two year Powerbook G4 as my main computer.

            Great machines!


            Quality of BMW's used to be good. I'd buy an early 90s BMW before I'd buy one made in this century.


            You know, I spend a bit of time lurking in Mac threads and have a number of Mac power user friends (and, for that matter, I spent some time with a 2 year old G4 powerbook, a machine that cost 1/3 more than my beloved same-age Dell Inspiron would have cost if I hadn't bought it refurbished; ask me to compare them sometime) -- and I'm having a bit of the ol cognitive dissonance reading some of the comments here. But there's plenty of time for giving into schismogenic impulses later...


            I'll say this: I think the G5 tower is the most beautiful and retro-hip personal computer ever. Its evocation of late 60s functional futurist design is smack on.


            I'm keeping my eye out for used cases in the future. Might be just the place to put a next generation Pentium M based system... wouldn't that be an amusing touch?

              Just to clarify...I haven't used the IIci since about 1996. I just couldn't bear to throw it out because it had such great design, so easy to maintain and update. I moved on to two different PowerPCs after that, added a G3 PowerBook, a borrowed G4 for doing EQ/Keyboard magazine work, and now have a dual G5. So I'm no Mac hater! I do most of my music work on Windows machines, though, because a lot of the software I use doesn't have Mac versions.

                  The ][ series was cool and I think there was still Woz in there at that time

                    Have you tried sitting naked on a chilled slice of honeydew melon?

                        No, but it sounds refreshing!
