Our art director, Robin, rocks a tricked-out Mac Pro at work, but at
home her trusty steed is a Power Mac G5. Compared to her work machine,
the 6-year-old G5 could qualify for Social Security benefits, but it’s
still trucking along, after previous upgrades to the RAM and hard drive.
however, the SuperDrive stopped reading DVDs. And poor Robin worried
this might be the final warning sign that her Mac isn’t long for this
world. After all, a friend of hers bought the same one at the same
time, and that G5 suffered a fatal frying of the logic board and went
up to that great server farm in the sky.
