How much can I get for a early 2006 iMac?
I'm just wondering because Kijiji is very slow.

It still works fine, has a 320gb hdd and 2GB ram, and has Snow leopard installed.

a seven year old computer? probably like a thousand dollars.

Really? You saw this thread and thought of that phrase but just never got around to posting it?

That's what iPhones and shit breaks are for.

Heh, I'm currently 20 hours into a possibly 36 - 48 hour photogrammetric computation. I came in this morning expecting it to be done. Ohnoes

I once had a machine learning algorithm with an input set that had approximately a million degrees of freedom (a set of square images, each 1000x1000), the resolution and learning of which required calculating an inverse of each, and then using that inverse to try and predict future inputs.

Even on a 64 core machine, that input set took weeks in Matlab.

Your computational peen is massive.

I really should know the spatial extent of these images, but I have 14 stereo pairs of satellite images that I'm computing a elevation model for. I should know how large each image is, but I don't. Each pixel is 2.5 m, and the whole track is 200 km x 50 km wide.

Also worth noting: this particular satellite, despite having a sensor that can produce up to 3 sets of stereo pairs per scene (i'm only doing two though), uses JPEG compression to transmit its images to earth.

I don't know if that is a good idea. How are they going to find goldilocks planets with that?

Easy, considering that the satellite is aimed at earth.

ok so on a serious note. is this a core duo or core 2 duo? core 2 duo, $50 bucks but you have to drive it to golden. Core duo? you can probably find a nice recycling depot.

Well that's helpful

It's a Core Duo.

I'll still try though. It runs perfectly fine still.

Computational update: It looks like we just wasted 12 hours because the computer ran out of room on the drive we were using. We were able to figure out how long each stereopair took to process: 3 hours. 4 pairs have already been processed, with 10 remaining, meaning that the elevation model should be complete around 10 pm tomorrow.

No, this is much cooler stuff pertinent to my dissertation.
