I need to upgrade from my elderly G3 400Mhz in the next month, I use: Dreamweaver MX, Photoshop, Illustrator as well as the usual Office programmes heavily every day - I co-run a new online business and it's my only machine. I need to have applications open at the same time and yup the Pismo can't take much more. I am a laptop person though I know a desktop has performance benefits. (should i re-think this?) Should I .... Buy a 14" ibook and be happy for saving the money and use it while awaiting G5 pb - besides it will be a big speed jump anyway and will cope fine with what I want it to do. Buy a 15" powerbook - it would be worth the extra £$ to get a machine designed for pro users and machine will last that little bit longer. Any thoughts gratefully received..
