Hey guys. I'm looking at purchasing a PowerMac and a PowerBook in the near future here. Originally I thought what I would do is just go balls-out, get a G5 and a 17 inch PowerBook, and call it a day. But after thinking about it for a while, right now the 64 bit processor is more of a novelty than anything else. What true 64-bit software support would I even have that would make paying the super-premium of owning a top of the line PowerMac worth while? Panther isn't even true 64-bit. While it's true that the G4 that I would get (Dual 1.25Ghz) would be slower than the G5... With the software I'd be using and what I would be doing on the computer, (I do web development, use mainly photoshop and HTML editors to do ColdFusion) I'm not certain I'd even ever notice that I'm running a G5. Sure the case would be cool, and in theory it would be faster... but if RISC architecture is so nice, wouldn't a Dual G4 be more than enough? I mean, I have the money for either, it's not really an issue of that. It just seems that going that balls-out on a brand new computer that consumers haven't even touched yet which has hardware that nothing takes advantage of is kind of silly. A year down the road when they supposedly have the 3.0 Ghz PPC970 in PowerMacs with a true 64-bit OS... then I'd say hell yes the G5 is the way to go. *shrug* Just some stuff I'm thinking about I guess. It's a lot of money, and kind of a big decision as to what to get.
