    I'm excited about my new gig-powered G4 that is coming in the mail... Can you tell me about it? You all seems so up on all of this.

    Does anyone know what comes packaged with that?

    I ordered it so fast when I found the right price that I didn't even think! I don't know if it comes with a keyboard or anything! LOL

    Yee Haw... Maybe I better go back and check from the supplier...

    L

    What would be a good 17" flat monitor for the money?

    Unless you custom configured it go to the Apple Store at http://www.apple.com/store/ and go through the motions of purchasing a DP G4 1 GHz Mac. It should list the default options there.

    The standard model comes with:

    512MB RAM
    80GB HDD
    SuperDrive
    GeForce4 MX
    56k Modem
    10/100/1000 Ethernet
    Apple Pro Keyboard
    Apple Pro Mouse
    Mac OSX / OS9

    Included are also a variety of applications, some .mp3 files, etc...

    :laugh: you said network card.

    ok. my dual Ghz box came with all the standard fare :

    software install/restore CDs
    2 blank DVD-Rs
    2 blank CD-Rs
    an iPhoto CD

    an application CD which included registered versions of:
    snapzproX
    graphic converter
    omnigraffle
    omnioutliner
    and pixelnhance - whatever the hell THAT is.

    overall the machine hauls completely irregular amounts of ass, even resizing windows in list view is as smooth as the shiny new handles on the QS case :D

    Well yeah, an ethernet card is also generally referred to in slang as a network card. ;) :rolleyes:

    :suspect:

    the general rule is that computers come with all the basics except the monitor (unless it's a portable or an iMac :p )

    hehe :D

    Don't sweat it cow.

    Yes I know... Ethernet cards are a type of networking adaptor and yes they are sometimes built into the system. I mearly meant that people tend to just call them network cards in general without specifying what exact kind of network cards they were. (Coaxial, ethernet, Arc, etc...)

    Yikes. Change the name of the site to nitpicking.com :rolleyes:

    Unless being specific it is NIC. So a "network card" is in fact closer to the real name than "ethernet card".

    a network card isn't necessarily ethernet. there is lots of networking media besides ethernet.

    " (Coaxial, ethernet, Arc, etc...) "

    Sometimes I wonder if people even read my posts... :rolleyes:
    Ah why say anything...
    Not that it's a big deal. I rarely have anything important to say, usually passing comments/jokes.

    How often do you find coaxial, fiber or any other of the above? Not very often.

    Examples bud. The point wasn't to state current stuff, just different kinds of networking. It was mearly an example, no need to be so literal. And yes, practically half the networks I've seen lately were coaxial. I converted them to RJ-45. There are a lot of old business networks still out there. Usually though, just RJ-45 stuff for the most part.

    I was only saying that you can call many things a network card/adaptor/NIC, as it is sort of a general name that includes RJ-45, BNC and so on. Slang was a bad word to use in explaining it but I was in a hurry at the time and nobody's perfect.

    In any case I am merely copying down some of the info that Apple presented as shown on their web site.

    Specs sheet on G4:

    "10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet connector (RJ-45)"

    Sometimes it feels like you can barely say a thing without people getting ultra critical and calling your preference lame or nitpicking every word you say. I certainly try my best not to do this. Sorry if this is too much to expect and/or you feel that this is overblowing the issue. If you cannot do these things without experiencing this level of grief/annoyance, why even post? There is little fun left in it. Fortunately for the most part this is not the case.

    Ah, it's okay. I figured that you were just in a hurry. You're a busy guy Jake.

    I know how you feel. You have to triple check your typing to prevent anyone from calling you incompetent for a typo.
