Thinking about a new laptop after 5 years.
Apple finally released the computer I’ve been waiting for yesterday:
Apple iMac G5 Desktop with 20″ M9845LL/A (2.0 GHz PowerPC G5, 512 MB RAM, 250 GB Hard Drive, SuperDrive)
20″ flat panel display (1680×1050), over four times faster (straight clock speed) than my Cube, three times the hard drive space, a dual layer SuperDrive, built-in wireless and it’ll reduce the amount of stuff on my desk. About the only thing it can’t do that I might want to do is watch the HD Serenity Trailer. (I might be able to watch the 720p version, but the 1080p version needs more horsepower.) I placed my order this morning (although it’s not yet in-stock at Amazon, the a9 discount and prime shipping made it hard to pass up).
Other cool toys and news:
- Glowing space age ant farm– I’d be sorely tempted if we didn’t have a “no chitinous pets” rule in the new apartment.
- Gummy Sloth– (Sloth like the Sin, not Sloth like the three toed sloth)
- Korean Zombie Outbreak– How did I miss hearing about this when it was first announced, just a little over a month ago at the beginning of April?
