  • Not Only is this Computer Fast, it Also Does Laundry!

    Aug 30, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Amazingly fast, user friendly, beautiful tower, easy to upgrade, Mac OS 9, optical mouse, easy to set up.
    Cons: Stolen Zip Drive, lack of Apple products, lousy speaker, many people are negatively biased towards Apple

    Summary: Wow. There truly are few words to describe this object of beauty. Apple's new, Dual G4 Processor computers are nothing short of remarkable. It has beauty and a whole lot of brawn. Recently, about mid-July, Steve Jobs unveiled this computer at the MacExpo ... read more

  • Get this computer if you like wasting money!

    Apr 14, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It handles graphic design programs very fast and efficiently.
    Cons: IT IS A MAC

    Summary: OK, we use these comps at school in my graphic design classes. Now, because of the RAM and processing speed of them, they handle programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and Raydream very well. However, I'd rather wait about a minute longer for my ... read more

  • I love my G4

    Nov 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fast, powerful, easy to use, easy to upgrade
    Cons: Pricey, no serial or adb port for legacy equipment

    Summary: What can I say? Upgrading from my 7500 to a new G4 late last year was like suddenly trading in a reliable old sedan for a luxury model. The case, as many note, is about the easiest ever made to access for upgrades or other tinkering. I like to ... read more

  • I'd buy another except....

    Nov 7, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fast, expandable
    Cons: price

    Summary: I purchased the Macintosh G4 733 and added 1 Gig of RAM with 3 additional SCSI 180 drives. The machine is fantastic, especially for video work and photoshop, my two main uses. I also got the DVD-R/CDR drive, which is the only thing I would change. ... read more

  • The Power of UNIX, the Simplicity of the Macintosh!

    Oct 15, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Mac OS X 10.1, Dual Processor, FireWire, DVD-R/CD-R/RW, nVidia GeForce2, Gigabit Ethernet, Great Looks.
    Cons: $3499 is expensive, but there is a $2499 version which has the same basics.

    Summary: Although Apple Computer was the first to bring the PC to the personal level, they only control about 5% of the PC market. Apple has always enjoyed an extremely dedicated group of followers, but that group is a little small. It is time for all of this ... read more

    Aug 17, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powerful, screams right out of the box, easy to upgrade, elegant design, fun to use
    Cons: Add-ons (like extra RAM) are usually overpriced when ordered direct from Apple

    Summary: ...take a look at the new G4 line. If you have a really old Mac and want to upgrade, go for it -- I won't "preach to the choir" any more. For the rest of you -- those who have either cut their teeth on Windows machines or are looking for a first new ... read more

    Cons: Lack of standard ZIP drive, Hard to integrate with PC Network.

    Summary: 867MHz PowerPC G4 I bought the middle line of standard macintosh options - the "faster" model according to the apple.com site in late July 2001. Here is what I have experienced so far. New Machine Specs: 867MHz PowerPC G4 ... read more

    Pros: Fast. Very attractive and easy to use. CD burner simple enough for anyone to use.
    Cons: Price is steep.

    Summary: When I upgraded from my old Performa 6400/180 I had high expectations for the new G-4. After 4 months of use my new G-4 has more than pleased me, I am convinced that when a better machine is built, Apple will build it! I am running OS 9.1 at this time. ... read more

    Pros: 64MB NVIDIA graphics twin view, 3 levels of cache on dual 800 G4s
    Cons: $3500 price

    Pros: Fast, Easy to setup, MAC OS9, Optical Mouse
    Cons: Easy to steal Zip Drive, Speakers are small and poor quality, Easy to steal memory

    Summary: I was so impressed with how easy and fast the G4 was to set up. It took me about five minutes, seriously. The only bummer of setting it up so quick, was wanting to use the programs, and as we all know, MAC's don't come with basic programs the owner needs ... read more

    Summary: It's almost been a year now since i bought my Dual Processor Power Mac G4. The details that epinions provides do not really give this computer justice. I have the 500 MHz model....you can multiply that by two technically (I know I'll probably get some ... read more

    Pros: Film Industry compatibility, slick interface, versatile, a must-have because it runs the special softwares
    Cons: Second processor crashes the system; DVD RAM didn't work but has been replaced; frequent crashes

    Summary: First, let me apologize for being a Mac novice. Doh! I will try to keep focused on the G4, but I thought it might be helpful (or possibly annoying) for me to explain my intentions in buying the system and the many peripherals. If a discussion ... read more

    Pros: Blazingly fast!, awesome RAM bundle, DVD, Zip Drive, better mouse and keyboard than predecessors.
    Cons: Price, No DVD-RAM... (Hey! I had to say something bad about it)

    Summary: I had been on the market for a new Apple computer and I found it the day after the 2001 MacWorld Expo in San Francisco. (Although I didn't make it) The prices on the Dual G4's dropped $1000! So I took out a loan for $3000 and bought a Dual 500mhz G4 with ... read more
