I've been trying decide whether to buy a G5 or G4. I've tried the 1.6 and 1.8 in the Apple store and I'm just not that impressed. At first I thought they were incredible, but I think that was just my initial reaction to their look... so they just felt faster. As I have used them more, and I'm not doing or will ever do hardcore video work, they just don't seem like that much of an improvement in speed. Keep in mind I'm speaking from the typical user's standpoint. I'm using mostly Photoshop, Illustrator, email, web, etc. I think a lot of people are rushing out to buy these things and for the most part don't realize how they don't really need this machine. It's overkill. Now, of course, if I had the money, I'd get one People seem to be saving up money for something they don't need. Just my thought for the day. I'll be buying a DP G4. Of course, a DP G5 might be a whole different story. Only time will tell.
