Interesting situation I have on my hands. At work, I have a Compaq Evo N600c (P3 1.2Ghz, 1GB RAM, 30GB hard disk, DVD/CDRW, wireless, and 15" SXGA screen). They are talking about getting something newer for a replacement. I am looking at either a dual G5 or a 17" PB. I like the PB for its portability and large display. I like the dual G5 for its power, storage and expansion slots. I can't make up my mind which I would like better. To be honest, I take my current laptop home every night, and my fiancee and I split up between my iMac 17" and the notebook. Here's the interesting part. No matter which one I get, I also get to keep my current laptop. One strong point of the G5 is that people can SSH into it and do development work, but it would be my workhorse. Of course, the PB would be nice to have as well, but they seem to get dated fairly fast compared to the Power Macs. I guess all laptops do though. Which would you choose?
