I am not finding many people posting who use macs for static graphic design so I am starting one. I am a print designer currently using a dinosaur 1.6 G5 tower and CS2. I use Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. I also shoot in RAW with my Nikon D80 and currently do most of my editing at my office computer because it is faster. I work primarily in vector graphics which is why my 1.6 is "working." After 3 HD problems and lost data, It is time for an upgrade. I will miss my 20" matte cinema display and will have to find a new way of working in my bright living situation. (that is why we have blinds, right?) Yes, there will be color shift on that glossy screen but I use Pantone swatch books, so that should help. (maybe) All this hype for i5/i7 chips is coming mostly from motion designers or gamers which I am not. Coming from a 1.6, I think the base model Duo will blow me away. My office machine is a 2x2.66 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon with 5 GB, 10.4.11, so the iMac should be equal to my machine at work and probably a bit better. (depending on snow lep lag) I hope to keep the machine for as long as It runs. I also will update to CS4, if that matters. Anybody else in my boat? I know the base Duo will be a HUGE upgrade to my current fossil and it is obvious I hold on to my machines for awhile. Anybody else going to roll the dice with the glossy screen who does similar work as me?
