Ahoy. I was recently given a brand new iMac (the bottom of the line one) and don't really know whether I either want or need it. I'm currently using a PowerMac G5 dual 1.8GHz, 3GB RAM with about 1.25TB of storage paired with an old Dell 2005FPW. I've had this setup for a long while now but truth be told, can't really see any reason to unbox this iMac and start using it. The only possible reason I can see is that it would allow me to dabble with the iPhone SDK in Xcode - but that really isn't a priority. My PowerMac still feels extremely fast, I never have to wait for Photoshop filters or anything else to load for that matter. The one thing I'd like would be a bigger desktop and I think I would benefit from a 30" display more than an iMac. Are there any inherent advantages of upgrading my ageing PowerMac that I am unaware of? The concept of a streamlined Snow Leopard OS is appealing to the OCD/geek side of my personality even though I don't really suffer from any performance issues at present. The 9400M negates any desire I would have to put bootcamp on it. I'm not imminently keen on the idea of an iMac sitting on my desk, principally because I think they look extraordinarily ugly. Huge great big chunky bezel and glossy screen whereas my ageing plasticky Dell 2005FPW at least has a very thin border and a matte finish. The 1920x1080 resolution is something that is likely to swing me to the iMac. With the 2005FPW in tandem vertically orientated for news articles/documents and the like, I think my screen real estate would be vastly improved. If I choose to keep the iMac I will have to deal with migrating the modest 200GB or so on my PowerMac over to the new computer. This includes many applications that I no longer have the discs for. Will the integrity of these applications be preserved along with things like 'open recent file' lists? So should I sell the brand-new never opened entry level iMac for £900 or so and keep the PowerMac or keep the iMac and sell my prized PowerMac for whatever I can get for it?
