    Hey guys I come to this forum quite often for answers so I decided to sign up. Right now I'm in a pickle on what kind of system to buy for high res photoshop work.
    I'm used to using a 1.33 g4 powerbook with maxed out ram.

    I'm wondering which would be the best purchase.
    An new 2.0 intel imac or 2.0ghz dual g5
    I can only afford these choices.

    Some questions I want to know are
    Will the 64 bit g5 work better then the intel chips for photoshop?
    What is the best machine for your money?(20inch screen with imac)
    Finally how big of a change will I see in performance between the two?

    Thanks guys
    Hope this helps some other people also

    Look at the Apple Photoshop Test Thread around here..

    Here's a quick bit that looks very promising


    If this can be verified by a few more users, then you have nothing to worry about when it comes to performance, especially when it runs fully native (i guess when they release CS3 later in the year)..
