My student developer membership expires this week and I don't think I'll qualify as a student anymore in the future. So my one-per-lifetime developer discount was sitting there - use it or lose it. I finally pulled the trigger on a Dual Core 2.0 G5 Powermac, with the wireless/bluetooth & 7800GT upgrades. Total before taxes was $1998. I'm ordering 2gigs of RAM and already have an additional 250gb SATA drive that I will install. Also ordered an APC 800VA UPS for it and the LCD that I'll order sometime in the next few months. I'd like to see what Apple has up its sleeve at NAB before I decide what to get - but it will probably be a 23 or 24" model. Can't wait to transfer all my stuff over from my aging, but reliable, 867mhz Quicksilver. Working with pictures and videos is going to be a whole lot faster I'm guessing.
