Hey Guys,

Here's the thing, I just switched from a Pentium M 1.75 1GB RAM 128 Video to an iMac G5 (iSight) 1.9 Ghz 1GB DDR2 RAM. Now I have searched online for a comparison in performance between a Pentium 4/Pentium M to a Single Processor G5. All comparisons are made with the PowerMacs which are a Dual Processor so its impossible to know how fast a Single Processor G5 is.
Resuming my question, how would a 1.9 GHZ G5 Single Processor be compared to a Pentium 4 and Pentium M in performance and GHZ wise? (I know Apple uses different GHZ forms and MHZ forms but in general what would it compare to??)

Thanks in advance....

Does it really matter?

Given that you have already changed out one machine for a "slower" one, how will doing the comparisons help you?

If I say that the 1.9 Ghz iMac G5 with iSight is streets ahead of the same speed Pentium M, will it make you feel good?
If it does, then it is.
If I say the the 1.75 Ghz Pentium M is steets ahead of the same speed G5, will it make you feel good?
If it does, then it is.
Do you intend on going back to CompuUSA for another machine. If the machine does the job that you want it to do, at the speed you want it to, then leave it at that.

BTW, dual posts do not work like dual processors. One gets locked up

If it does or not make me feel better, is none of your concern. My question was pretty clear and if you can't answer it, someone else will. Thank God these posts are monitored by Cnet, if not I would tell you off so bad. Get a life man!

PS: You are probably a fat, ugly looking dude who spends all day checking new posts on these forums to practice your stupid wannabe cool replies to make people look stupid....GET A LIFE!

thiagofl84 is not following the forum policies. The message received in private has me asking for a ban.

These forums don't tolerate such behaviour.

If you want to be here all you need to do is apologize.

Such Behavior? What about your rude reply?

I am not apologizing to you. I was responding to your rude reply to my question. If Cnet bans me I will make sure I'll get to the bottom of this. I, in any moment used prophanities, so there is no reason why I should be banned.PERIOD!

No Prob...They should also show you the door and fire you for being " so nice" . Just because you are a moderator doesn't mean that you have to make smart (rude) replies to people.
