Moving into a new place and I've recently gone from heavy audio work to lots of consulting, AppleScripting and FileMaker Pro. So I'm selling my dual 1.8 G5, bulky CRT and huge desk to consolidate my setup and make some space. I'll need to buy immediately so waiting around for the Intels is not an option. I'm going to be grabbing an iMac G5 20" 2Ghz or a Mini with a 20" Cinema Display, maybe a 23" if I feel like treating myself extra nice. I know as far as power goes there is no contest, the iMac spanks the Mini in every department. The only reason I'm debating is that when the Intel stuff starts to appear the Mini will probably be a fast little computer and I'll want to grab one right away. My dreams of dual booting OS X and BeOS will finally come true and I'll be able to throw the new Mini on the desk and the old one can go in the living room and be my new stereo/Tivo/thing. If I go with the iMac however, I'm kind of married to it for a while and eventually selling will mean a bigger loss and will leave me with no display. The Minis are so cheap I'll have no problem running out and buying another. I wouldn't want to have to buy a new iMac every year or so though. As I said, my needs these days are basic. FileMaker, AppleScript, Automator and Quickbooks are where I spend most of my time lately. Along with running Apple Remote Desktop all day. While I love the G5, I don't feel like having one does much for the work I'm doing. Your thoughts?
