    Whats a better option?
    Obviously these are second hand,

    I have the oppurtunity for a G4"digital audio"/733/superdrive 1.5GB ram etc

    or a Quicksilver 800mhz 512mb ram etc.

    For music production only, using Panther...

    Or is a Dual Processor 450/533 close performance wise to the above?

    ORRRRRRRRRRR

    Finally,

    Is an Emac 1.25ghz faster than all the above?

    Im leaning toward the g4/733...?

    Help appreciated.

    New Emac wouldnt be bad choice. you get a lot for the money and the Emac is more machine then the Quicksilver at 800. but crank it up, add ram and a decent video card and a Quicksilver can still win the race. 10 months at 1.47 :)Geforce3 etc. Im still current. one thing that hinders Emac is you cant change video. Quicksilver you can pop in a 9800 if you wish.

    What do you mean 'more a machine?'

    I know the cpu speed is faster but I always heard powermacs were quicker than emacs,

    Compare say a

    1.25ghz 512mb emac vs a Powermac G4/733 w/512MB ram

    For music production work?
