Power Mac G5, circa 2005
*Catching up on 4/16/13*
This was my workhorse. Buying this computer allowed me to edit at home with my AVID software (and later FCP). This was the last Power Mac release before the Intel processors, so I got left behind rather quickly once that happened. But I got great mileage out of this. My most memorable moments were creating “Arc”, my video piece for Pearl Jam’s video contest. I wish I could tear this machine apart and inexpensively rebuild it to today’s specs.
I believe the specs are as follows: Dual 2.5Ghz processors, 2.5 GB RAM, 160 GB HD, OSX 10.5
Sigh… goodbye old friend.
