    something is definitely wrong with that G5 on the right...it shouldnt take tat long


    my iMac G5 Rev.B startup time is as fast as the Intel one shown on the left.

    i have to disagree. mine takes that long to load up. about a minute or two. perhaps due to the clutter of files.

    but... is that two 20" imacs :O

    I believe the iMac G5 is of the latest rev, it has the isight built in if you notice...and also if you hear the initial chime of the start up sound, it does seem that the iMac G5 is faster initially

    Which one is the intel mac? I've got this problem with my newly purchased imac G5, and apple asked me if i wanted a G5 or an intel as a replacement.

    ha, I meant architecture

    Code:
    % file Photo\ Booth
    Photo Booth: Mach-O fat file with 2 architectures
    Photo Booth (for architecture i386):    Mach-O executable i386
    Photo Booth (for architecture ppc):     Mach-O executable ppc
