Perhaps we don't share the same view of "usable speed" in computers?
Sure it was useable by yesterdays standards, but certainly not for me in
todays standards.

That would be a big powerhouse that would suck too much power and would
be too noisy to use anyway. And what would I do with it? Play games and
surf the web? No thanks. I'll let my laptop or PC at home do that job
very nicely.

The G5 seems most impressive.
Don't misunderstand me - I would probably have loved OSX on G5 (like
everybody else).
