First off I can't wait to get rid of this buggy, flawed, and flat out boring OS we all know as windows. I've been bitten by the mac bug and I'm happily switching over to mac after too many years on a windows machine. The first part of my question is regarding the new Intel iMacs. After FC goes universal will this system be powerful enough to handle medium to heavy sized video projects(such as wedding or promotional videos)? I was also contemplating just buying a refurbished generation C powermac but I'm not sure I can afford to drop another 800 bucks to pick up an apple display. I just figured I could use the iMac for the next year or so and then possibly upgrade to the new intel versions of the Powermac when they came out. Another guestion I had is how do iMacs handle 3d animation programs such as After effects(in relation to a Powermac that is....now I know Powermacs can probably wipe the floor clean with an iMac, but will it drag that much more behind a middle of the road Powermac?) I have a million other questions I could ask but I think I'll leave it at that for now. I appreciate any helpful advice you could offer.
