Hi, I came across a trade for a Power Mac for my MBP, but I'm not really sure what to expect. I've been using a MBP with and external monitor for awhile. All my portable needs go to my ibook G4, so my MBP never really moves. I do music production, and would really like to get started with video editing. But, I'm not super serious with either of them. I'm just not sure if I'll miss anything about my MBP. I have a few questions.. 1. Will it feel slower? (my ibook compared to my MBP is so slow, but it's usable) 2. How loud is it? It just feels wierd to take a step back (going to PPC).. but then again, they seem like such powerful machines (Power Macs) it really be nice to have. Also, in a way, it's nice to have two PPC so compatibility issues won't get in the way. It's my 2.0 MBP for a Dual 2.3 GHZ Power Mac G5 w/ 23" monitor. Portability is not a problem. I never took out my MBP anyways. I only used my ibook if I needed portability.
