Here's the thing, i'm an art student currently learning after effects, shake, and maybe even motion. I basically have the cash now to get a 17" g5 imac. should i save up a little more cash to go for more screen real estate with the 20" or just wait about 6 months and go all out on the powermac. i dont want the imac to last me forever as a workstation, and dont even know if it will be sufficient with 2gigs of ram to run shake or motion. i plan on upgrading again after i get a full time job and graduate from school in 2 years. i just want a machine that can run shake and motion at home since i commute to school and dont have constant access to the labs. anyone have any idea how those programs will run with this machine based on the rev a g5 powermacs. i know the 5200 doesnt help but i wont be using this machine for gaming so lets not start that rant again. any input is greatly appreciated as this will be a switcher machine for me and i dont want to be disappointed with my purchase.
