So the refurbed PowerMac Dual 2ghz G5 I bought a few weeks ago is acting up. Just those annoying chirps, crickets, etc sounds that is all too regular in these machines. The NAP thing is a possibility, but I feel like I shouldn't have to do that to get a computer without flaws like this. And it cannot be fixed with power supply, etc, so I am either going to return it or sell it on ebay to a user who doesn't mind the chirping. Which means I am back in the market. It is either the Dual Core 2ghz PowerMac or the latest 20" iMac with iSight. Now, with edu discount it is only a $200 difference in price, but I already have the Dell 2005FPW monitor. I could keep it, or sell it if i get the iMac and save $300 more dollars. So the difference between machines is roughly $500. I am upgrading the RAM in both machines by purchasing a gig aftermarket. I love the possibility of upgradability in the PowerMac and the dual core. In the iMac I would get a cheaper system and a bigger hard drive, bluetooth and Airport Extreme, which the latter two don't really matter to me. I don't care about the isight or front row. I am a student in the digital media field that does web design, photo editing, lots of audio mixing and editing. And just a bit of video things like encoding and such. I am not a professional obviously, but it'd be nice to have a better system. I also want this one to last a while. By a while, I am meaning 3-4 years. That probably has a big influence on what I get. I can't go around making $2000 purchases every year! Thanks for the help and I understand if this gets not much response, being Christmas and all. Merry Christmas! God Bless!
