Whatcha got? I'll go first...

Power Mac G4

Dual 533 Mhz PowerPC G4

640 MB RAM

40 GB 7200-rpm Ultra ATA Drive

60 GB 7200-rpm Ultra ATA Drive

CD-RW Drive

ATI Radeon Graphics Card (32 MB)

Running Mac OS X (Jaguar)

I love my G4, but those dual 2 GHz G5s are making me drool -- Santa, are you listening?

2000 Dell Dimension 8100

Windows XP (Upgraded from ME)

60 GB Hard Drive

256MB Ram

1.0Ghz Processor

CD-RW Drive

64 MB Graphics Card

...and it ain't workin' too good. I need a Mac. Badly.

Apple may introduce a new G5 line in January, I hear. By the way, when you buy your G5, be sure to shop at the Apple Store for Education, where you can probably get at least a few hundred dollars knocked off the overall price.

Wha-hooo. I never knew you could do that for personal use. Crazy stuff, but great. Although, I probably will end up getting a G4 Powerbook or an iMac, because the monitor on the Powermacs are things that really kill ya.

Did you go to "Shop for yourself" rather than "Shop for your school"?

Yeah, I did, but it provides that list.

That's strange, Danny. I just just checked and you're right, of course. When I purchased my G4 over a year ago, students were definitely among those entitled to education discounts. And from the posts at several online Mac forums, I see that many students are still taking advantage of these discounts. I don't know what the deal is. Huh.
