Well, after weeks of thinking, and arguing, and deciding on getting a single cpu mac pro I changed my mind 100% yesterday. I ran into an ad for a PowerMac G5, 2.0 ghrz, 2.5 gigs of ram, dvd burner, 160 gig harddrive, and 2 video cards for 1200 bucks. I sent an offer for 500 as a joke, and he countered with 800. We decided on 700 bucks. So, 700 bucks for a workstation 4 times the speed of what its replacing (my dead linux box, single cpu 64bit sempron 1.6 ghrz) and 2300 bucks cheaper then the Mac Pro I was looking at (upgraded ram + video + taxes). Not to mention a new low end Mini is around the same price an I would definitely take the PowerMac over a Mini. So, I am headed over to the sellers place of business tomorrow to inspect and purchase the machine. I'll be getting new hard drives for it in the weeks to come (dual 750s anyone?).
