PowerLogix Posts Price Reductions, G5 Analysis
7:49 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
CPU upgrade manufacturer PowerLogix recently posted price reductions on their line of PowerForce G4 Single and Dual CPU upgrades. The decreases are fairly significant, ranging anywhere from $50 to over $200 for various configurations.
Doubtless, given the recent announcement of the G5, many Mac owners may wonder why anyone would bother with a G4 upgrade at this point. In answer to that, PowerLogix has also posted some commentary on the G5 itself, pointing out that not everyone actually needs G5 performance for day to day work:
However, it must be said that the majority of computer users (PCs as well as Macs) do not truly 'need' to pay top dollar for the ultimate performance. (Need and want are two different things...if you want ultimate performance and can pay for it, then this discussion doesn't apply.) For this largest group of users, especially in this struggling economy, it's a matter of getting the most bang for the buck. If a user can upgrade a machine for a few hundred dollars and get the lion's share of the performance of a new Mac (which otherwise would cost several thousand dollars) then that is often the best business decision.Included in the analysis are some interesting speculation on G5 performance as well as instances in the past where earlier models outperformed later ones with higher processor speeds. Those interested can find the commentary linked below.
