    I am just graduating high school this year, and I am serious about pursuing a career into the entertainment industry in the post production field. I am outgrowing my pc, and need something I can edit on better. I am debating between getting a dual processor g4 1ghz or a dual processor g5. Obviously the price is quite different and thats where the problem starts. I dont want to spend 400 dollars on a g4 and not be able to use it after a year. But I also dont want to waste 1300 on a dual g5. Please help me
    Thanks
    Tyler

    I think you may be better off spending money on an intel Mac.

    i think you should be thinking about getting a "G6" (mactel).

    i seriously doubt if it's worth it to get a G4/5 unless you are a collector, or it's a 12" PB.

    As mentioned, you'll probably be better off with a Intel Mac, there are plenty of choices.

    personally id stay away from the mactels because if you get a ppc mac you will never have to worry about buying new programs again. ever.
