That's right. You read the title. I bought it on 5/5/05, so it's almost two years old. It's a 17", 2.0 GHz, Superdrive, and has .5 GB RAM. It also has a 160 GB hard disk, and I have to external hard disks: an 80 GB FireLite, and a 100 GB Firelite. Of the 340 GB I have, I've used almost 275 GB. I do a lot of video editing in Final Cut Express, and I think I'm ready to upgrade to Final Cut Studio. Before I do that, though, I want to make my iMac the best Mac it can be. I'm starting with the RAM. 512 MB RAM sounded like a lot to me when I first purchased it (coming from a G3 running at 500 MHz with 128 MB RAM.) FCE runs fine in it, but I'd like to bump it up to 1.5 GB. I talked to a guy at the Apple Store and he said that there was no point in buying Apple RAM. So, I think I might go with Crucial RAM. Any better suggestions? I think I might get another hard disk to install all the files for Final Cut Studio, as it requires 42 GB, and I only have 16 GB on my internal, 7 on my 80 GB external, and 44 on my 100 GB external (which is my scratch disk in FCE.) I like the FireLites, but I'd like something that gave me a little more GB for my $$$. Any suggestions? I want to make my G5 as fast as it can be so it can continue to fulfill my needs for up to another two years. What else can I do to make it a faster machine? Thanks!
