The PinoyMacLovers Me & My Mac Project Entry#2

Meet Aby, Darlyn, Dazzle Jamie, Lisa, and Liz:







These girls have just finished an extremely busy semester at their University. It was a very hectic 3 months in which they needed to complete a few course requirements in time for a special Junior Term Abroad program of which they are taking part. Needless to say, this semester proved to be quite the difficult challenge - one that was marked with a lot of stress, very little sleep, and large eyebags. But with perseverance, discipline, and a little help from their trusty 12" iBook G4s, these hardworking students pulled through.

JTAgroup02PinoyMacLovers would like to congratulate Aby, Darlyn, Dazzle Jamie, Lisa, and Liz for all the hardwork they've accomplished. We wish them all the best as they fly off to their respective host countries where they will take part in what will hopefully be an amazing learning experience. And with hardwork, discipline, and a little more help from their trusty 12" iBook G4s, we're pretty sure they'll do great. :)

PowerPC G4-based Portable Systems Still Available

Apple may have made the switch to Intel, but that doesn't mean you have to (well, for now atleast). Brand new PowerPC G4-based portable systems are still available at Ynzal Marketing Corp. Here are the specs:

PowerBook 12" G4/1.5GHz/512MB/80GB/SuperDrive/APX/BT...P84,980

iBook 12" G4/1.33GHz 512MB/40GB/Combo/APX/BT...P61,980
Promo Price.....P53,980
Educational Discount.....P48,006

I definitely think that any of these models would still be a good purchase (depending on your needs, ofcourse) for those who are thinking of making the switch or puchasing a new notebook computer. Those specifications are still pretty good. They're more than enough for everyday computer tasks such as word processing and web surfing. I'd say they'd perform pretty decently on some light graphics and video editing as well. The big, discounted prices also make these 2 models even more attractive. And don't worry about software and support for PowerPC G4 systems. Those will still be around for a while so you don't need to worry about those G4 computers becoming useless anytime soon. I still have my old 800 MHz iMac G4, which I bought 4 years ago, and it's still very much useful.

For more information, you may contact Ynzal at (+63 2) 373-2232 or 373-3940. But you better hurry if you still want that G4 portable. Stocks are very limited!

Apple Unveils New Mac Pro Quad And Previews Mac OS X Leopard


Apple's transition to Intel is now complete, as they finally unveil the new Mac Pro with Quad 64-bit Intel Xeon processors, which was announced at the 2006 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. omgOMGOMGYAY!!! The lowest configuration comes with two 2GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors, 1GB RAM, 160GB HD, an NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT 256MB video card, a 16x double-layer SuperDrive and a $2,124(USD) price tag...

Must.Win.Lottery.

Apple also gives us a sneak peak at Mac OS X Leopard, scheduled to ship in Spring 2007. Some new features we should expect to see include: Time Machine - a robust, automated backup system that integrates with an external HD letting you backup and restore your system with great ease; Spaces - an innovative new system that allows you to group your active applications into different windows giving you easier access to a clutter-free desktop. I'm definitely looking forward to its release.

I *heart* Apple. :)
