    9 years! ...

    Yes, 9 years that I have this machine must be well 11 in all. Of course it has since been replaced by more recent and is only used occasionally, of course with it not total silence (at least we know it is on), of course it not consume a lot of power, but it is always there when needed and when it is being a good Tiger frankly she fears no one, so much so that Apple was forced to prevent access to Snow Leopard to continue to peddle their ordis! Since it does not even know what a computer is expected in this crazy world of geeks ... Maybe make a return trip to the moon for a week-end to impress colleagues at the coffee Monday morning? ...

Although today Apple is always good and able to amaze with its new products, G5, G4 as also in his time, was able to bring me the power, flexibility and I was looking for reliability in inbred Mac without ask me if I had got my money for the time responded to my place. With experience, I would do this choice? Honestly I do not see where was the choice ... Well, just a simple reflection on 30 years of use of the Mac with the note at the end: "A little less marketing, please, Mr. Cook. ..

    Fidler Apple has almost 15 years, I bought a G5 ago. This machine is monstrously powerful, beautiful but trs trs CHRE. Despite outstanding performance, the price remains trs lev (4500 with the apple display screen 20 '). Personally I have made pay much by my bote and I know if I could put as much money from one product. Bon Apart from that, if you are rich, there are ways to be happy trs. I went from a 733 Mhz G4 to G5 and I assure you that the diffrence is impressive. Really, it's a great machine, I can not see what rival. In addition, ultra class c, even inside of the machine design t with care, which is still close to the same TRS DLIR.

    G5 4.5 ghz ram 2X2

    Everything has been said.

    2 months utlisation, no plant capacity monstrous, the disign and almost no noise.
    I was working on pc with a pentium 4 2.4gz and Logic Audio / Cubase SX3, and I spent more time on the computer as music. This solved all my mac to computer problem. In addition I always had a preference for logic, and there with logic 7 I'm in heaven.
    in terms of performance, to test: 24 stereo tracks with three effects per track (comp, rev, eq) + 10 track sampler EXS24, 5.6 + MIDI tracks, you can barely half the capacity of the beast .
    Moreover, no problem either for installation or logic for the sound card (MOTU 828 MKII) all set in less than 30 second…

    You will tell me the price ...?
    Yes, but after the turn rates of PCs more or less equivalent it remains competitive, with additional guarantees more than excellent (and unwinding on-site assistance for all the pieces and software for three years). Consider also that this machine is so powerful which will not need to move in six months. And if that's not enough, for 2x2.5 obtez the stuff of 8GHz RAM and return to me.

    I must admit it takes a little getting used to, from XP to OS X but then: what a pleasure!
    I would do this choice without any hesitation.

The most impressive thing to beginners, and even now is the time taken for the calculation of the export mix in cubase .... 3 minutes more are expected, no 20 seconds enough on projects "common" ... I could not afford the MODEL supprieur, but with the dj I'm in the right time for a ..... I put 2gig of ram because 512 of dpart, but are a fair bit .... my objectification may be relative, because I am Macintosh and fifteen years now, but under Windows, I use also , to obtain the same stability you really have a machine SPECIFICATIONS prpare for audio, and the price is comparable to that of any fact my machine, Mac OSX and less .... even when the power is significantly down .... For all computer music, or all the musicians of the computer, I would suggest, in the case of an investment for a new workstation info, look at this machine more prs, the price-performance ratio is very allchant ... No, no nothing, no I have no regrets ....

    - How long have you use it?
    Since October 2004.

    - What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    It really is top level and bottom degsign trs well in any office or pice despite its large size
    The best of the best is that it is really quiet! for a home studio is the IDAL! no hum when shooting with his microphone.
    By turns against some have concerns over power at Firewire (or 8 of my note) and grid external hard drives that are too long and branches too long activity (for direct to disk is not worth ...)

    - Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    No, but I'm on mac since 1990 and I'm low on tests and articles that spoke before you buy!

    I dj for some time and I won.
    A reliability worthy of Apple. I actually used to the Pc t always been very young and there is nothing to do. PC ram, bug, etc.. The Mac purrs, the dual G5 simmer ... as bonneur.
    2100 is not given either, but that's the price to pay to be quiet forever. And I am that choice.
    I would do this choice eyes closed ...

    I come from a MAC G5 acqurir 2x2gz dualcore with 2GB of RAM.
    I put on Cubase 3.1 and HALion SL3.1 bank SoloString VSL.
    Everything is installed correctly (even the USB key! Steinberg)
    It is still a significant investment trs. But for now everything works fine. A dception halion with all the same there are saturations noon, with 2 GB of ram is a bit irritating.
    It's true that I load virtual instruments 14 VSL (solostring with lots of joints) in HALion more qq percu xylo and virtual instruments.
    It goes faloir I spend 4GB of RAM or I changed my way of working.
    But the jump may be just twelve o'clock the power supply, I will lend to an inverter to see if it would not come to l.

    or nothing to say, in terms of pure power, just like that to try I manipulate images in photoshop 200MB, as small thumbnails gif, trs impressive.
    But it is a machine that I only Dedier vai music.
    I have yet to try between its S / PDIF. but promises ca.
    So for now I'm still in love.
    FYI I work as indiffrement PC and Mac.
    For the price it is true that one can have also a good configuration PC running XP (which is also stable)
    I would do is choose whether c'tait again (for reasons of formal network with other mac and freebox, but also to avoid the low level format with an annual ncessaire PC).
