    Has anyone tried a Universal Ap yet? Maybe a comparison online somewhere? I'm wondering what the difference in speed is (if any) between the Universal Aps and the PowerPC aps on a power pc Mac. i.e.: am I losing anything by sticking with a PowerPC PowerMac for a while?

    I noticed something I downloaded recently had a universal binary, but I'm not sure what it was.

    i tested a intelmac at the apple store. I wasn't so impressed :hs:

    I've got my powerbook 15" 1.67 high res display with 1.5gb of ram and 128 videoram...and itunes and other universal apps load equally as fast in some cases (give or take a second in other cases)
