Howdy folks! I'm on the cusp of getting a new 'puter, and I need some advice as to what kind of Mac would be appropriate. I've been using PCs at work for years, but I'm about to branch out on my own and I've decided to go with a Mac for a number of reasons. First of all, while nothing is perfect, I have a bunch of Graphic Design acquaintances who swear that Macs are more reliable, and the numerous PC issues I've dealt with in the last few years make that very appealing. Secondly, I don't have most of the software that I'll need yet anyway, so it's not like I will have to lay out a bunch of dough for stuff I already have. And third, they don't make nearly as many games for the Mac, so it might keep me honest And now to the real question... 90% of what I do is in Photoshop, and file sizes routinely grow to 100MB or more, with dozens of layers (I prototype new products virtually, among other things). The rest will be sporadic Illustrator use and bouts of InDesign abuse. Does this sound like something that an iMac G5 with a couple Gigs of ram could handle, or am I looking at a dual processor PowerMac? For purposes of comparison, I currently use a P4 3.06Ghz with 1GB of Ram, which is serviceable, but not quite ideal. Honestly, if I could expect similar performance from an iMac I would be happy just to not have to deal with Windows anymore. Just so we're clear, I'm far from PC illiterate. I've been working on them figuratively and literally for about 20 years, and am generally the guy that most folks look to for PC help. I'm just ready for a change. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer, and if you're still reading at this point I applaud your patience!!
