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.

"which model of imac looks gaudy? is it the ilamp? no
is it the translucent cased candy coloured all in one model? yes

geez, some ppl have to have it spelled out completely"

Geez, I must not have transported back to 1999 when the iMac was "candy coloured".

Maybe some of us assume you would be talking about the only iMAC BEING SOLD RIGHT NOW.

Why the hell would I think it was an older model?

Most people will assume that it is one THAT IS NOT DISCONTINUED.
