Also one thing is I cant believe the price I paid or some other people just for Apple to discontinue PPc G5 and this scares me do I buy a 3000.00 intel pMac just for them to drop that, MS has never done anything like that XP is still supported, also why do we mount and dis mount everything its a annoying xtra step along with putting my password in 20 Times a day, Now dont take me wrong I want this MAC thing to work for me I have way to much money involved and do like some of the features.I need advice on what to do,I need a good mac for dummies but the ones I tried dont expain well, should I just continue to be disappointed or how do I get to where you guys are with your comfortability with your MACS.I dont know I wanted this to be my super computer, goodbye windows and thats all but as I said first Apple just stopped supporting all those people with power pcs and that scares me more than anything or is this a computer for people that can afford to toss away 3 to 5 Grand and so on,THE ONE LOST MAC USER

The PowerMac G5 was discontinued 4 years ago.

and this scares me do I buy a 3000.00 intel pMac just for them to drop that


Even the 27" iMac doesn't cost $3000.

MS has never done anything like that XP is still supported

That is not a similar comparison

also why do we mount and dis mount everything its a annoying xtra step

You always have to unmount a disk before you eject or format it, no matter what operating system.

along with putting my password in 20 Times a day

This is a security feature.

Now dont take me wrong I want this MAC thing to work for me I have way to much money involved and do like some of the features.I need advice on what to do,I need a good mac for dummies but the ones I tried dont expain well, should I just continue to be disappointed or how do I get to where you guys are with your comfortability with your MACS.I dont know I wanted this to be my super computer, goodbye windows and thats all but as I said first Apple just stopped supporting all those people with power pcs and that scares me more than anything or is this a computer for people that can afford to toss away 3 to 5 Grand and so on,THE ONE LOST MAC USER

I don't understand what you said here.
Don't get me wrong, I am not a fan boy (far from it), but most of what you said is ridiculous.
