    In terms of product life and life value! which system would you recommend I go for?

    iMac G5 20" and Wireless KB + M... £1,286.86

    or

    PowerMac G5 1.8Ghz, 20"CD, 160GB and Wireless... £1,672.19

    I guess I would like to keep my Mac for 4/5 years before I'll ever consider getting another desktop - again, main usage - FCP, PS and surfing...

    I'd look out on the refurb store for a dual 1.8, that will last the 4-5 years you plan on keeping it much better than the iMac or SP1.8 PM.
