    ...and damn, am I ever impressed. It's on thing to work at a lab full of dual-processor G4's: it's another creature completely to have, sitting on your desk, a dual-processor PM G5. I've NEVER run CS2 so quickly. Anyone who wants a hardcore graphic design machine, pick out the PM G5 of your choice and go at it.
    Thanks again to everyone who helped me through the buying process: I'll no doubt be posting again sometime soon for advice on augmenting this thing with RAM and possibly a more powerful video card.
    Thanks!

    -Colin

    Welcome to 2 GHz G5 dually bliss! :D

    I'm doing great on 1 GB RAM, but still want to take this puppy up another notch adding at least another Gig.

    Congrats!

    I too am looking forward to dually PM at some point. New iBook is just a blast though. Goes along OK for most things with 1.5GB RAM :)

    Welcome to the club Colin, congratulations. I would high recommend at least 1GB of RAM, you will see a noticeable improvement in performance. Purchase what you can afford. Also AppleCare is important.

    Bring back the Switch Forums. I think with the upcoming intel Macs, we'll see a new and larger, more deadly influx of PC users into the Mac community. Especially as they infiltrate and dilute the pure Mac users on this board. We need a new forum to contain this PC spread. BTW, I'm not implying the OP is a PC user at all.

    Good on you :D

    If you need a good LCD screen with a 16.7M colour display I recommend the CMV - 726D 17"

    Thanks for the welcome, everybody! This board has never steered me wrong, so I'm definitely sticking around.
    Bern: thanks for the advice, but I already have a 20" Dell Ultrasharp Widescreen LCD that I'm using for my PM.
