Here's the text of an email forwarded through our local MUG (Mac Users Group) in Tupelo MS. One of our members sent it to our moderator, and details a discussion he had when trying to order a G5 Intel iMac from MacMall. I called Mac Mall and was ready to place my order for a Intel G5 iMac... the sales person who I deal with often asked me some general questions like they do when users call in requesting to order Mac computers. Well, I told him I wanted this basically for my video editing, photo editing etc... stuff like that... guess what he said... you don't want this machine! I said what? I'm dying to get this machine because that is what I want to do... he said that these machines are having a TON of problems running any Photoshop Adobe programs and also they will not run Final Cut Pro 5. He said they got word last Tuesday that Apple is releasing a new version of Intel iMac G5 at the beginning of March that will allow users who are wanting to use Final Cut Pro or adobe products to run on these new Intel core chips. As of right now I will not be able to use it on these machines and if I bought it today then there will not be any software updates or releases by Apple to fix this on the machine I would have bought today because it's a Intel Chip problem that they have resolved but can only fix by supplying a new line up to the family of Apple in March. I'm no heavy duty computer user, but from all the discussions going on and the delay in shipping MacBook Pro (as well as the limited lines introduced with Intel processors), I've been leary of the first gen Intel Macs. This seems to confirm those fears.
