I have now been an iMac G5 owner for about a year and I haven´t encountered a single software problem, viruses or just any problems with e.g. setting up peripherals, except my Epson printer, but I managed to fix that. I cannot say the same thing about my experience with Windows or Linux, so I would like to keep on using Macs. I need to upgrade one of my iMacs since they only have VGA out instead of DVI and they have TN panels that I cannot use for critical Photoshop work. It would also be nice to have Lightroom run faster. I have looked at Apple´s offerings and I´m not willing to buy any of them for the following reasons. Mini: Lacks sufficient graphics card, uses expensive laptop ram. iMac: *I have no use for its 17" TN panel, so I would have to buy external monitor anyway. *20" is far overpriced and perhaps it also has a TN panel. 17" iMac + decent 20" S-IPS cost about the same. *It has useless iSight (the camera is too close to your face so the angle is terrible, so you look silly in it...too big nose etc) *It uses expensive laptop ram even though it is a desktop! That is about 150$ more for 2GB of ram than if it was a desktop ram. *2GB ram isn´t enough anymore! Powermac: You can get similar fast PC around half the price! iMacs don´t fit me needs but they don´t cost double the price you would have to pay for a PC with the some TN panel LCDs. If I had money to burn, I would just buy a Powermac and enjoy it, but I don´t and I need much, power, so I think I have no alternative but to buy a PC even though I like Tiger much, much more than Windows...unless Apple comes with cheaper Powermacs anytime soon?
