I'm looking into buying another Mac. I previously had a 1GHz Powerbook, which I loved, but the wife wasn't into. I wanted to get into transferring my VHS tapes to DVD and doing minor editing, so I souped up my PC. In the meantime, since my wife didn't care for using the PB (I didn't have Mac versions of some of the software she uses, plus the whole old dog, new tricks thing, not that my wife's a dog, or old...you get the point), I traded it here for a Thinkpad, which she uses a lot and is happy with. Now I've decided I need a G5. I love the 20" iMac and all the hardware it's equipped with. I'm just not sure if the smarter move would be the G5 tower. I'd love to get rid of my PC tower, but I want to make sure my computer will be future-proof, at least in the short term. Given the type of stuff I'll be doing on it (VHS to DVD, etc.) and the fact the important stuff is the same on the 1.8G tower and the 20" iMac, what's the recommendation? I've got a 19" monitor on my PC right now, but I wouldn't hate to get rid of it. Thanks in advance for the input. I know this kind of thing usually comes down to personal preferences, I'm just looking for things I might have missed, or the kinds of things that aren't listed in specs (upgradability, etc.).
