I need to upgrade my Mac and I need some advice as to which way to go. I am currently using a Powermac G3 MT which has been upgraded to a G4 500. My previous Mac was a Powermac 8500 which had been upgraded to a G4 450. The reason I used these two particular models was because of a couple of things that they could do that I like and need. For one thing, they both had RCA audio and video inputs. I like being able to connect them directly to my stereo both to play music on the stereo, as well as to import music from the stereo into the Mac for CD burning purposes. I also like the "Apple Video Player" from OS 9 as it enables me to capture stills of any video I input via the RCA jack. I like to take the stills from videos and use them on DVD cases for the DVDs I burn. Lastly, I like the "video mirroring" capabilities of OS 9 because it enables me to project my desktop onto my TV (using the RCA video output). I use this feature to help my kids with their homework, as well as to show streaming video on the TV. As a result of the features I need, I have been using OS 9 exclusively because OS X doesn't recognize the RCA inputs and outputs, and also because there are still are a few remaining Classic programs I like to use. My problem is this. I want to be able to use OS X now because I have an iPod and need the upgraded iTunes. My original computer, the 8500, was incapable of running OS X, and my G3 MT has problems changing the boot disk back and forth from OS 9 to OS X. It also runs OS X much more slowly than I 'd like. It has a very slow bus speed as well. I am comtemplating buying a higher end Powermac G4 (faster processor) that will dual boot into both 9 and X. What models would you recommend first of all, and secondly, what add-ons (devices, cards, etc) would I need that would enable me to still do all the things I described above? Or should I go with a G5 model, give up on Classic all-together, and, if so, how would I need to equip it as well, in order to continue to import and export audio to my stereo, inport video from my DVD player ( I don't believe Apple lets you take snapshots of images from the Apple DVD player- I tried it once), and also allow me to project my desktop onto a TV?
