    I don't know what to do! What do you reckon. Im not that bothered about portability although it would be nice. I just can't decide, i feel i would be buying old technology if i bought the powermac :rolleyes:

    The Power Mac line will likely not be updated soon... and if portability isn't an issue... I'd go for the Power Mac.

    Option 3)

    Buy the MBP, give it to me, and I'll give you my iBook G3 800 in return. :D

    For what it's worth, my iMac seems just as fast as my PowerMac in universal applications, and close to as fast in Rosetta.

    Yeah, it's really hard to fit a G5 underneath an airplan seat. MacBook, not so hard.

    Seriously, if you don't depend on PS then the MacBook is going to last longer. But I think we'll see an Intel Mac Pro announcement by WWDC and shipping by August.
