With all this fiasco regarding the Mac Pro...I know this sounds crazy but I'm really wondering if I should get a PowerMac G5 now. I had one and left it at my parents home years ago but it was the best computer I've ever owned. I haven't enjoyed Mac OS ever since Macs became PCs with the Apple logo on it. I wouldn't be able to run Maya 2012 but it would still run Maya 8.5 which was my favourite version. Maya 2010 is the last supported version, not sure about what the last version of Photoshop was that supported it. My questions...how will it feel? I'm thinking of getting a Quad 2.5Ghz G5 with 16GB RAM. Will I still be able to watch Youtube videos in HD? Will it be slow compared to an iMac Core 2 Duo 3.4Ghz? Any idea what the best video card for it is? I know this sounds like going backwards but I miss having a real Mac. My husband and I just got an iMac i5 3.1Ghz with 16GB RAM that he'll be using professionally. This replaces his Core 2 Duo. I can either use that or sell it and buy a G5. I'm seriously considering the G5. Any reason why I shouldn't?? Please let me know your opinions. I feel this forum is the best place to ask! Thank you.
