    IMO, it's been always good time to switch... Personally, I would wait until they make a revision to fix possible bugs. (But again, I bought my PowerBook only last year and I won't buy a new computer until next year or so.)

    Could someone please explain to me what "bugs" could come from using an Intel chip? :dunno:

    Since when are problems ever associated with processors? And it's not like OSX hasn't been ironed out.

    The only "bugs" will be the software transition, which will likely just result in slower running software in rosetta, until the properly optimized software starts being released in a few months.

    Unless you are heavily dependant on pro software developed specifically for the G5, why wouldn't you buy a new Intel Mac if you wanted one? :dunno:

    The first run of any new product is prone to have some issues. maybe it gets stupid hot, maybe the power cord won't stay in..ect....not just talking about problem associated with the switch to intel. Although many of these questions couldn't be answered until feb.
