The frugal beast in me wants to get a G4 with all the bells and whistles possible for the best clearance price. The other me, the one that drooled when we got the 2.0 DP G5 w/ 20" Cinema at work... that one wants the best money can buy. I'm a graphic designer, I'll be running Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator) and some stuff like Office, etc. I want to replace my home PC with a Mac so I can do some work at home and maybe some freelance. I was almost ready to go for a 17" PowerBook because it would be portable... but then... oooooh it is SO hard to decide! So I shall bow down to those with higher knowledge and follow the best advice given for my dilemma ... or at least consider it.
