Hey, Right now I own a 1.25gig 15inch Powerbook with 1gig of ram. I have had the laptop for what must be nearly 4 years. I can say that its had its problems but in general I've loved it. I mostly use Photoshop and Music production tools such as Logic. I have found that the PB can often be slow with Photoshop and when I am trying to use my Wacom tablet there is often a noticable delay between my strokes and on the on screen strokes as such. What I want is a more fluid graphics and audio production computer so I am looking to buy a desktop. I can say right out that I cannot afford a Macpro. I could maybe stretch to a new 20inch iMac but I don't want a glossy screen (not so good for print proofing etc) so I think i would consider an older white Imac model. Still I have just been looking around on Ebay and I notice that G5 towers seem to go for very little! I am wondering if maybe this is my best bet? I am on a very limitied budget but I would love a power computer. Surely a G5 tower is going to kick the crap out of my old G4 Powerbook? It would be a shame that I couldn't run all the new intel only applications and games and things or boot windows (I would like that for some web applications) like the new Macs can but at the same time it would cost me far less. How do G5 towers stand up to IMacs in general? Please let me know if you have any good advice for me, Thanks for your time. Andy.
