May be picking one up. How are these working out for people? I hear they a particularily noisy.

Any thoughts or advice?

I own a DP867 and am quite pleased with it. This is my first Apple computer and I have no big complaints. There does seem to be a noise issue with the first generation of the MDD Powermac's. Apple currently has a power supply replacement offer going where they will send you a new power supply and system fan if your current system is too loud. You do need to pay the $20 for shipping though. I already ordered my replacement kit.

Other than the noise this is great machine. You can't go wrong with dual processors. I would rather have my dual 867MHz than one of the new 1GHz single processor machines.

Regards,
-Ian

I love my DP867! I have BTOed it to a ATi Radeon 9000 and a SuperDrive. I don't know whyu everyone complains so much about the noise.... it's not that bad.

I love mine, even with the noise.

I worked with all kinds of computers, always had a preference for the Mac at home, and while the previous Macs made me happy back then, this one makes me ECSTATIC.

PLUG bought it from macdoc ENDPLUG

Cheers,

1) Gee, and I thought no one cared!
:D

2) Had my ups and downs. As usual.

3) A place where I mostly had to deal with
Cat3 and Cat5. Both were responsible for
me being off the net for a while, until I had
Cat5 all over the place, while Cat3 (sort of)
assisted.

CAT3

4) Mostly cat2of3

5) Damn tootin' fast but not as fast as 2 x 2 G4/867

Choovay,

Ukrainian is NOT a foreign language !
In some provinces it IS the official language. ;_)

Of course, Michael is a submersive. It's all these perogies and borsch weighing him down. :D

Did I say borsch? It's RED, too!

Submersives of the world, unite!

P.S.> Yup, the 2 x 867 is still fast today.
