Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y This article started life when I was asked to write a comparison of x86 and PowerPC CPUs for work. We produce PowerPC based systems and are often asked why we use PowerPC CPUs instead of x86 so a comparison is rather useful. While I have had an interest in CPUs for quite some time but I have never explored this issue in any detail so writing the document proved an interesting exercise. I thought my conclusions would be of interest to OSNews readers so I've done more research and written this new, rather more detailed article. This article is concerned with the technical differences between the families not the market differences.

" (and imacs, i really detest the imac look, how friggin gaudy can a computer get?)"


Why? Because it's white? Because it's screen is able to move in all directions? Because it has a round base?

I'm curious, because if not for it's design, you would not have:

a.) an all-in-one design (and perhaps you are just against an all-in-one design, fair enough, although very subjective).

b.) the only reason the monitor CAN move in every direction, is because the screen sits via a flexible arm onto a round body. Other designs would sacrifice the screen movement.

c.) I can't come up with a c.). Does a computer have to look like a Dell or HP to please you?

Needs to look more like a COMPUTER, right?
