Dual 1.8 gHz 2.5 RAMnicklittle wrote:Hidden driveways: Yeah im running the same. What specs your g5???
I would recommend leaving it on 10.4.11. The newer OS's are really geared for IntelMacs. Many G5 owners had trouble + casuallties jumping up 10.5. Invarably you will hear G5 owners telling you that going up to 10.5 is not a problem. Maybe not for them, but I know for a fact it was a real problem for others. Best not to tempt fate. The goal here is to have a music creation machine, not a machine with the latest and greatest dock features.
Bump up the RAM. I used a company called RamJet. Don't flush away the money in your student loan until you have to.
If you don't have an Apple cinema display, get one! I have a 15" which is terribly small, BUT, the greatest thing in the world is when you press power on the monitor, it powers up the whole computer. You can buy 15" cinema displays on eBay for $60 USD. No kidding. Get one. It's fun.
