well the powerpc architecture is less braindead etc, the hardware apple sell
is damn good hardware, IMO always has been superior to most x86 stuff (well
put together good quality components etc) for a similar quality x86 box you
will generally have to select individual components and build a box (and end
up spending lots more than bog standard namebrand pcs sell for) etc.

In general I use ppc stuff (and alwys use only linux on the boxen) as it is
good hardware, and means I dont have to use x86 stuff (maybe irrational but
hey) now if only someone other than apple could release affordable powerpc
based hardware that (because IBM stuff still costs to much)
