I'm going to school for Music production and Audio Engineering, and needless to say, I need a Mac for ProTools. Now the school said their computers are not going to be upgraded just yet to the new intel chip, and are running g5 processors. Ill be using these and transfering the data via portable HDD to my computer. My dilemna is coming from if i do get a G5 itll soon be outdated and possibly incompatible with new Mac programs, and thats like flushing 1500-2000$ down the toilet. But if I get the new mac pro, it may not be compatible with the ProTools the school is running. I dont know if all that I said is correct, but what is the best possible solution here? Please help guys.
