    How would the performance of the new Intel iMac compare to a PowerMac G5 tower? Would performance be comparable to 2.0 or 2.3 Dual Processor in the Power PC?

    Thanks

    For some tasks yes, for others probably not. In general, yes, the new intel iMac is probably comparable to a dual 2.3ghz G5, but it still doesn't compare to a Quad.

    Without knowing the specifics of Apple's benchmarks, we're going to have to wait til they ship before we know for sure.

    :cool:
