Hey there, I'm in the process of picking out a new computer so I thought I'd see what advice I could gather from all ye wise ones. I just recently completed a digital audio specialist course (what that truly means I'm not sure) and am 210M Pro Tools certified. I have been a windows user most of my life but used Mac at school and think I'd like to make the switch. I've been lots of advice, all contradictory in one way or another as to which direction I should head. I know that everything is going Intel, but right now very few companies support Intel. I was also informed that the new iMac Intel's won't do what I need them to do. I'm also told that G5's will be old news by the end of the year and will have to make the switch then anyways, though I find it hard to believe that a suped-up G5 will not still be able to do the trick for at least the next few years. I plan to run Pro Tools LE on whatever I buy as well as numerous soft synths and other plug-ins. I haven't decided into which field I would really like to specialize in. When I started school it was because I really liked producing music but through the course I realized that either movies or possibly game-audio would be more challenging and thus rewarding. Any advice that any of you can give me would be great and much appreciated.
