Time to Upgrade?


My current machine is an Apple PowerMac Dual 2.0 G5 which I’ve had since February 2006. I’ve added an additional hard drive and bumped up the RAM (twice). It’s a perfectly fine machine. Does what I need it to. However, it’s not an Intel machine and can’t run Snow Leopard (10.6). And the ramifications of that are starting to show. Here’s a current list of apps I’ve been an interested in the last few months that require either an Intel processor and/or Mac OS 10.6:

  1. Acorn 2
  2. Aperture 3
  3. Adobe Lightroom 3 Beta
  4. MarsEdit 3 It may be time for a new MacBook Pro…

Update: And Google Chrome
