I import audio books from the local Library about every other day... Keeps me sane at work.
I have a QS dual G4 1GHz with a Pioneer 111D DVR drive. It imports CD's at a nice rate... But, I'm wondering how much faster a Dual G5 will import? I could purchase a 52X CDR for some added speed for the G4, but I am looking for some reason to sell and upgrade. Is importing CD's optical drive bound, or processor bound? I assume both. This may sound like an insane gripe, but I spend MANY hours importing books, and several hundred dollars invested in a new Mac makes sense when your not buying these Audio Books at $50 a pop, and your time in front of the computer starts adding up... The dog needs walking...
Please don't tell me I'm spoiled (with my entirely adequate computer - it is), or robbing authors of their well deserved book sales. Libraries are paid for through my taxes. Is anyting ever free?
I'm hoping advise is still free?
