Hi everyone. My company wants to buy our graphics department new iMacs ASAP as they are moving offices. The problem is all the apps we use are currently not available as Universal Binaries. Adobe Creative Suite, QuarkXpress etc. My boss doesnt seem to want to wait 6 months or so for these apps to be updated and I am pretty sure we would not be satisfied with the performance under Rosetta. So the thing is. Shall we get the PPC G5 with maxed out RAM etc and fastest processor or get the top Intel iMac with maxed out RAM instead and run the apps under Rosetta for a bit. Just for the record we are going to upgrade to ACS2 and QuarkXpress 6.5 when getting the machines and I'm thinking we may have to pay another upgrade free when ACS3 and QuarkXpress 7 ships which is a bit of pain in the ass. We tend to work with fairly large images in CS and multi-page documents in Quark (around 200+ pages) so I dont really want performance to suffer that much when running through Rosetta. Can anyone help with this discision. Thanks. wink.gif [UPDATE] Just for more info. We are currently running PS7, Illustrator 10, Acrobat Pro 6 and Quark 5 (in Classic - I know there is no Classic on Intel Macs) on PowerMac G4 Dual 1.25GHz machines with around 1GB on each machine. Ive read in a post on MacNN - http://forums.macnn.com/showthread.php?t=282752 that running PS under Rosetta is faster than a G4 1.67GHz PB. So would running under Rosetta be faster or on a par with our current machines.
