Film director still uses ‘obsolete’ iBook G4

Film director Jonas Cuaron still uses an iBook G4 as his main computer, and is fine with it.

Amen, brother. My iBook is still my “main” Mac, even if the iMac G4 gets more day-to-day use.

What’s your “everyday” Mac?

  1. The one I use the most is a MacBook Alu, but on my desk at work is a Mac Pro, which I also use a lot. Tend to do most of my email, browsing, writing on the MacBook and design work, testing, gaming and more on the Mac Pro.

  2. I think the best buy Iphone 3g 16 gb. and install it on his software version 2.2. Its large
    touch screen and very comfortable realized sensory management. I bought a Iphone and happy!)

  3. I still use my iBook G4 every day and love it. Needs a few upgrades, but I have a feeling it’s going to have a long life with me.

  4. I feel that way too, Ashley. Mine is in great shape, and I can see it being my road warrior for many years.

  5. My main computer is a 20 inch Intel iMac (the white one), but my main laptop is a beat up iBook G4 from 2004. I also get a lot of use out of a recently acquired PowerBook 3400c (my Newton/QuickTake machine), and my main writing computer is (no, this isn’t a typo) a PowerBook 145B. I also have a PowerBook 1400cs, two PowerBook 5300s (everyone hates them but they are great computers), a Newton 2100 and 120, a QuickTake 150 and several other old Apple devices. I might have a problem…

  6. Maybe not a “problem” – but more like the rest of us, a “hobby.”

  7. I’m still in the PowerPC guild, since my main machine is a 12-inch DVI PowerBook G4 (1GHz, 1.25 GB RAM). It’s really a compact powerhorse. I’ll probably get a new MacBook in the next three months, but I’ll never leave the PowerBook behind; I’m planning to buy a new battery and AC adapter for it, and a bigger hard drive as well.

    Other Macs I use on a daily basis are a PowerMac G4 Cube, a TiBook and a clamshell G3 466MHz graphite iBook :)


  8. My main Mac is a MacBook 2.2GHz with 4GB RAM and 80GB disk. This is a great machine for everything because it runs Windows and Linux in a virtual machine so I can do all of my work on one machine. The only thing I would change is that I need a bigger internal hard disk. This replaces a G4 PowerBook that I sold when I bought the MacBook.

    My other Mac is a 733MHz G4 PowerMac so I can test my software on a PowerPC on OS X 10.3. I paid $150 for it used but absolutely like new and it even came with the original installation disks. Sweet! :-)

    Also have a Mac XL (Lisa) but I seldom turn it on anymore, and buried in a box someplace I have a Mac Plus.
