When you need a computer to get stuff done, Get a Macintosh!
At home I currently run a Powermac G4/450 with 256meg of RAM and 27gig HD
along with the internal DVD-RAM drive. I use the Apple 21" Studio display,
Microsoft Natural Keyboard and Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer mouse. I also
have a Epson Stylus Photo EX Printer and 6X4X24 CD-R/RW drive.
At work I have a Powermac G4/500 in a similar configuration with dual Apple
17" monitors for working on webpages. My coop students have a G4/450 with
17" display, and a Epson Stylus Photo 1280 printer. I am also running a
pair of G4/450 Cubes, one is running Filemaker Pro Unlimited and the other is
running Webten and Lasso Web Data Engine, which combined give a great dynamic
webpage serving solution.
