I'm looking at buying a new computer in the next few weeks (hopefully before October) and was hoping to get some insight as to what I should get. I guess I'll tell you what I'm currently using as I'd like to get somewhat of a comparison of my current set-up and the two computers that I'm looking at. Right now I'm using a PowerMac G4 667 with 1 gig of ram. I know that either computer is going to be a big increase but if anyone can give me an indication of what to expect it would be greatly appreciated. The two set-ups and quotes that I got are as follows: 20" iMac 2ghz 1.5 gig of ram (third party) $2,177 (cad) dual 2ghz PowerMac 1.5 gig ram (third party) $2,606 (cad) I'd like to get back into rendering, and I do like to do a fair amount of graphics work as well. I'm hoping to run AutoCAD in virtual PC too as the current company I work for does do quite a bit of CAD work. I'm on a budget so the 20" iMac is nice because I'm able to get a monitor with it as well, but the dual processors will help out with rendering, photoshop, and some final cut pro as well. If I were comparing the iMac to the 2.7 PowerMac if wouldn't be much of a choice... but being that it's the top of the line iMac vs. the low end PowerMac I'm a little more confused about what I should do. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. P.S. I'm going to wait until after the Expo in the even that Apple does bring out new Macs... but if they don't I'd still like to know what I should do.
