Ok here's the deal: I want to surprise my fiance with a gift of a new mac. Her old mac is a G4 Quicksilver, 733, with 1.5 GB of RAM. I initially bought it for $500, and spent another $500 upgrading it (upgraded RAM, hard drive, silenced fans, bought a USB Hub, new printer, etc.) This thing is getting to be way too slow for her. I kind of regret now buying the old unit and spending so much money upgrading it, instead of just buying a new unit for $500 more, but the past is 20/20 vision. So here's my question: Would a new mac mini be a decent upgrade from a single-core G4 quicksilver, or would I be better off spending another $1000 and waiting a few months to get a G5 powermac? My fiance primarily uses apps like Adobe, Quark, pagemaker, etc.. I already have a widescreen LCD to give her, so that is why I don't feel like getting her an iMac, but I know that Adobe won't have universal binaries until at least next year. So my options are: sell old G4 (I can probably get $500 off of e-bay), and put that towards either a mac mini (with upgraded RAM to 2 GB, plus upgraded hard drive), or a refurbished G5 powerPC for $1000 - $1500. Other things of note: I would probably have to buy an external hard drive if I went with the mac Mini, as the files she makes and uses are pretty big, she's already used about 70 GB on her G4. Cliff Notes: - want to buy a mac to replace a 733 single-processor G4. - Needs to run Adobe apps. - Spend small money and get immediate gift (mac mini) or wait a few months and get a G5 (being phased out). - Would this new mac mini run non-universal binaries significantly faster than the old G4 on native code? Please advise!
