I do love my G5 (I’d be a complete and utter fool not to), but that love was smacked in the face initially becuase the first one I received had a faulty hard drive which needed to be replaced. This basically meant a month of crashing, losing information, reinstalling, wondering what the hell was wrong with me, and finally taking it into the store. That was the first time that I had to take a computer into the store because I thought something was actually broken.

Now all is well, but I’ve grown more cynical with Apple because of the whole G5 thing. Not just mine, but we have two where I work and both of them needed to be brought into the shop to be replaced or have maintenance performed on them before they were working like they should.
