    Mac Mini?

    if you do intensive graphic work, then i would go with something more powerful. At least an iMac. But if you want to use both of those monitors, you will have to get a PowerMac as the Mini and iMac only support one monitor.

    iBook plays MP3s a little slower than my PCs

    Songs dont have to play at the exact same rate for them to sound good, so they dont put a tremendous ammount of effort into exact timekeeping. Try the same thing with a portable CD player compared with the one in your car and you will probably have similar results.

    using another itunes computer as "remote speakers"

    itunes has a server built in. just select share my music under sharing in the prefs, but you cant control it. You can use one of these programs to do that. I hear netTunes is pretty good.

    Startup Sound

    If your machine is muted when it is shut off or restarted then it will not make the bong when you turn it back on (same with the volume adjustment-the volume also applies to the following startup sound). As for the screen res - that sounds like what happens when the PRAM is reset or the PRAM...

    Powermac 9500 power issues

    The PowerMac 9500 requires a connector similar to the +12V connector in PC's but is larger and with more pins in addition to the ATX-style connector. It will be cheaper to buy a new Mac than to replace this unless you can open it up and replace whatever component is burnt out.

    What to do with a old iMac ?

    Tiger does not actually require firewire. It just happens that the introduction of firewire into Apple's lineup coincided with the actual requirements. It is just easier to say "you need firewire" than to rattle off a bunch of technical specs. XPostFacto will allow you to put Tiger on that...

    Apple laptop noob question

    Lets try to make complete sentences here fellas. My advice: it depends. If you mean one external in addition to the internal drive then it might not be a bad idea. I you mean two external drives, I would suggest getting one large one unless for some reason you need two separate drives.

    It's offical, apple moving to x86 Intel chips by June 6th 2006

    I like the fact that Apple will not stop Windows from being run on thier boxes. I just hope that they dont integrate it into the OS ala startup disk or the like. It will ultimately force Apple to go the way of OS/2. It allowed Windows apps to be run and nobody wanted to write apps for it. I...

    Relevant points. Apple has a time ahead of them. The more I think about this the better I feel. I hope that this will at least partially put behind us the problem of incompatible hardware upgrades like video cards, and make it easier to port games.

    hellphyre, Methodical, and Dew, You were correct in that I am not privy to future X86 developments, but: Keyword: performance, I know OS X is better. I just have a hard time believing that with a hand full of SE's in 5 years, Apple has been able to optimize X for X86 the way MS has been...

    It's offical, apple moving to x86 Intel chips by June 6th 2006

    Quit citing this. Apple has said that what they have now is better but the future G5's dont look as good compared to future Intel chips, so they are changing to prevent that.

    I woke up in the twilight zone and Apple anounced today that starting in June of next year Apple will be using Intel processors and all Macs will use intel by June of 2007. I have yet to fully digest all the implications of this announcement, but I have to admit that I in no way saw this...

    Apple to start using Intel chips?

    A non-issue unless Apple decides to start making cars. Remember IBM's new $3billion Fishkill plant built just to keep demand on the new PPC fabs? IBM would not let Apple just throw that away. There would be deals made to keep Apple. Also IBM is making some good changes to their processor...

    apple switching to intel possibly good news for pc's?

    It is liquid cooled. The external cache uses heat pipe tech but the procs use water run through a pump and heat exchanger. Check your facts.
