On discovery that my G4/933 PPC based Mac was unable to run the Chrome beta, I was very disappointed.
Shortly thereafter, I found a dealnews advertisement for a Mac Mini core duo 1.8ghz (2nd gen) for $350.
I'd been eyeing a Mac Mini for several years, but refurbs at the Apple Store for $450 still seemed too expensive for me.
But this was all of the incentive I needed, and now my G4 has been retired to the basement.
A combonation of the right price, and the clear direction that support for non Intel Macs is dwindling, along with the desire to run Chrome on all of my platforms - was irresistable.
I can't wait for the final RCs of Chrome Linux and Mac to come out.
And while Chrome may be the dominant browser, I'm starting to wonder if Facebook might not be in a better position than Google to leverage the arrival of widespread "cloud" computing.
