Basically, i have the chance to purchase a dual 450 Powermac G4 for £235 GBP,($408 USD) now i already have a powerbook G4 1.67 to edit with final cut pro, but i wanted a machine as a back up and a storage machine. I wondered how good the dual 450's were? Could i run final cut on it if i desperately need to ? also, what about photoshop performance? I will probably upgrade the HD so i could use this as music, video and storage machine. Maybe upgrade the processer later on. Just want another mac as a backup as i don't want to buy a PC and a high capacity external drive is near enough the same as the powermac. Thanks everyone. Rich.
