...and damn, am I ever impressed. It's on thing to work at a lab full of dual-processor G4's: it's another creature completely to have, sitting on your desk, a dual-processor PM G5. I've NEVER run CS2 so quickly. Anyone who wants a hardcore graphic design machine, pick out the PM G5 of your choice and go at it.
Thanks again to everyone who helped me through the buying process: I'll no doubt be posting again sometime soon for advice on augmenting this thing with RAM and possibly a more powerful video card.
Thanks!

-Colin

Welcome to the club Colin, congratulations. I would high recommend at least 1GB of RAM, you will see a noticeable improvement in performance. Purchase what you can afford. Also AppleCare is important.

Bring back the Switch Forums. I think with the upcoming intel Macs, we'll see a new and larger, more deadly influx of PC users into the Mac community. Especially as they infiltrate and dilute the pure Mac users on this board. We need a new forum to contain this PC spread. BTW, I'm not implying the OP is a PC user at all.

Thanks for the welcome, everybody! This board has never steered me wrong, so I'm definitely sticking around.
Bern: thanks for the advice, but I already have a 20" Dell Ultrasharp Widescreen LCD that I'm using for my PM.
