What kind of Mac do you have?

Anyone interested in sharing the configuration of your Mac or Macs?

I bought my first Mac in June 2004 ... a Dual 2.5 PowerMac G5. Yeah I know, an awesome system to have for a Switcher! However, the system didn't arrive until the last week of August 2004 as a result of IBM's manufacturing and yield problems with the PowerPC processor when they bumped the speed to 2.5 GHz. Thousands of people who ordered the Dual 2.5 had to wait several weeks to get their systems. I couldn't believe the wait and my first experience buying a Mac wasn't the greatest. I didn't start using it until September 1, 2004 and I can now say the wait was worth it. I love my Mac and it's been an amazing Switch experience.

So here are the stats of my system and add ons:

- Dual 2.5 GHz PowerMac
- 256MB ATI Radeon 9800XT Graphics Card
- 8X SuperDrive
- Bluetooth with Apple wireless keyboard and mouse
- 460GB internal hard drive
- 250GB external Lacie D2 hard drive
- 23" Cinema HD Display
- External Plextor 708UF DVD/CD Burner
