I believe that the mac pro uses those, but I could be wrong. The mac I want (the mac mini) uses a 32MB ATI Radeon (forget which one), I think it's a mobility radeon but I forget what it is. yeah it's not very much, but I'm also not planning on games too much either.

the problem with kubuntu was probably because your first computer couldn't run x desktop...

MACS RULE! The reason it is so stable, is because the software is written for the hardware...

Well, my Pentium II 350 could run the Live CD, so the only trouble would be the GPU.

Macintosh OSes were running okay on my system, exept the mouse that needed a bit of time before it started to move. No LAN and apparantly outdated stuff.

im not gunna buy it until they can prove to me it will run most xp programs. like come on, it doesnt even run nero properly.......

Again, you've tested a BETA....it's not a final version....a TEST version. REPEAT....A TEST VERSION. It's going to have bugs and not run properly for most things, that's the whole point.

It will be backwards compatible with XP.....be patient for the final release and quit basing opinions on a BETA version.

never knew that, the more I learn about macs the better they seem. I was talking to one of my teachers at school who said that they never had computer problems until they switched away from macs to windows based PC's. I also have heard great things about apple tech. support. Apple also seems to care about the consumer more than microsoft does, microsoft seems to be in it for the money while apple seems to have more of an ear for what their customers want.

I will be honest, whilst a great OS, you have to realize that the user base and software out for MAC OSX isn't even remotely close to what Microsoft has to support. Therefore signifying the exact reason why OSX doesn't have the viral problems Windows does.

Does anyone even have the real copy of Vista? I know it's only available for businesses right now. I'm not talking about all the crap beta and RC either
yes i am running the full version. the RTM.

true, but doesn't apple change their OS architecture every few years instead of doing what microsoft does by using the same thing for awhile such as using DOS for 95/98/ME and NT for 2000 and XP? I could be wrong but I believe I read that somewhere....

They could, not sure. I am not an Apple fan. I think a lot of their products, including the iPod are majorly over-hyped.
