i've been waiting for around 3 months now to upgrade my PowerMac 5G Quad. I always go for the best of the line to stands with me for around 5-6 years! To tell you a brief of my job. i'm a video photographer, I use FCP.i'm also a photographer, and a designer as well. I use huge formart for Video like HD and for graphic I use so huge files for Printing posters etc. So i wonder do you guess think its the right time for me to update? or still wait little longer to see a new speed with the same price as the 2.9... like 3.2 or something? how is the new proccessor? i'm not so much into hardware honestly i'm just a professional in my Field!i just know how to open FCT,Photoshop.Illus.Indesign and sometimes Apreture! nothing else! when it comes to hardwear i'm not much aware of such things and one more thing shall I wait for the new Snow operating System? how long you guess it will be released? thanks in advance!
