    Default Apple Computers: am I the ONLY user here? *twitches* (o.0)

    Wow, i feel all alone, am I stuck with PC users, or are there others out there? Ok on to the topic so I dont get moderated (lol):

    Our systems:
    PowerMac G5 DP 2.5 GHz
    8 GBs RAM
    Presently: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL
    Ordered: ATI Raedon X8000
    30" screen, 23" screen
    LaCie 16x DVD±RW (w/ Lightscribe)
    800GBs HDD internal
    LaCie Bigger Disk Extreme 1.0TB (over FW800)
    Airport Extreme w/ some random omnidirectional antenna that came from who-knows-where
    Bluetooth 2.0 dongle installed inside (i got instructions here somewhere, i'll get their URL later)
    /\ Main Editing Computer /\

    PowerBook 17" Generation the-one-right-before-the-one-were-on-now 1.5 GHz SP
    2 GBs RAM
    Airport Extreme
    Bluetooth 1.2 (apple branded)
    60GB 7200RPM Hitachi internal HDD (I chose speed over size)
    /\ Traveling Presentation Machine / Backup Editing Machine (-: /\

    Others:
    * eMac w/ 2GBs RAM (for accounting, and burning when we need ltsa drives)
    * Mini Mac w/ 1 GB RAM and overclocked to 1.58 GHz, 23" screen (temporarily at my partner's house for when he needs to edit at home, soon to become the brains of our heaven-on-wheels setup (-:[ [the brawn is a Subaru Outback, to be jacked up and put on 23" tires, probably going to something about the atrocious sound system too (-: ] )
    * iMac G5 'nother backup editor, burner, and sometimes we rent it out to customers wanting to do a part of a project themselves until they get stumped and we take it over (-:{ )
    * Old PowerBook 12" 1st generation G4 that got smashed 3 times with a hammer and drop-kicked out a second stroy window - we use this as our punching bag whenever something isnt encoding correctly or a computer crashes and we forgot to save )-:] )

    Other equipment:
    2x Canon GL2 w/ lens sets for both and XLR adapters for both
    Optura Xi - for no particular reason, kind of incase we need 3 camers or summat
    2x CitiDISK DV - the greatest thing since sliced videotape!

    3x REALY CR*PPY TRIPODS (want ta mail us better ones? /-: )
    Soon to have: ComposerMAX

    You don't get any pathetic apple/pc rivalry in here. Just gentle ribbing occasionally

    Ah, don't take it too badly. At least you didn't ask about interlacing. THEN you'd have seen flaming.
