1. It depends on what you plan to use the Mac for. If you're going to be doing processor-intensive work, you would benefit from the PowerMac's dual CPUs. Otherwise, stick with the iMac.
2. I don't know about this one, since I don't live in Canada.
3. The sales tax charged depends on where you live in Canada. Here's a link (http://www.taxtips.ca/provincial_sales_tax.htm) to the sales tax rates in Canada, and another link (http://store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Images/canadapolicies.html#Sales_Tax) to Apple Canada's sales tax policy.

it depends on your needs are you doing graphic intensive works or things that need the better processor or grpahics otherwise id get the imac because the monitor is included also consider your updrageability needs if you want this to last for a while get the powermac
