    If i'm wanting to upgrade from my 1st gen G5 1.8ghz tower, but would prefer something smaller, how would one of the new intel iMacs compare? I want ability to run Final Cut 5, but i'm willing to forego some expandability.

    My current machine has 5GB of ram which helps, but i have a feeling the new intels, even a 2.4ghz imac, will blow away my old G5.

    Advice welcome.
    Thanks

    The iMac will be much faster. You have to be sure to get the universal version of Final Cut Pro though.
