Hi peeps, thought id share some thoughts. i have a powermac dual 2.7ghz, indeed still a powerful machine by todays standards. boy did i want a mac pro as soon as they came out but they lacked one or two things (such as sli) that im sure rev 2 will have. But i never thought that after turning pro (3d animatio) that i would be tempted back to an imac, with the new 24 incher! good processor, graphics card upgrade, 3gb ram, all sounds quite good, until i heard the front side bus is 667mhz doesnt sound too great does it! so unless these processors are so much faster than the G5 (which i doubt) there probably isnt a benefit, other than it could be handy to have windows also installed as 3D is kinda dominated on windows (and linus to a degree) oh, i mention the mac pro but it is just too expensive for me at the moment. im sure there is a lot of people in my kind of boat, wanting to go intel but finding it hard because of software, (im sure cs2 will work fine on a mac pro under rosetta but ive heard Maya struggles) oh boy, maybe im just being impatient but damn, that imac is sweet. add your views or intel switching dilemmas, could be interesting!
