OK have done a lot of research on the Intel macs, I do Multimedia projects so processing after effects, FCP HD, and Adobe products and so on is important!! I need a new computer soon and ultimatley want a powerful desktop but here are my options: MBP but dont know if that is a safe route for editing (especially estimated year or more for UB), PowerPC Qaud G5 of course will be enough but will it last a good 2 to 3 years before I need to transition to Intel Based, or buy a cheaper Intel Mac Mini (upgraded) or Intel iMac. Intel flaws: Test have shown slow processing time for non Universal Apps especially Adobe even slower than previous models in some cases. Universal Apps from companies wont be ready for a good year! still kinks with the first generations of Intel!! Question: whats the difference between current native Mac based Apps and with the new Intel chips they are the same Apps so whats the perk, will they process faster?????? I dont necessarily have enough money to buy now than sell and buy in a year for the new intel so with that in mind should I buy qaud G5 now and wait for Second generation Intel Desktops because the first will have the same problems which will be released no later than the end of the year??????? PLease consider all above because people in forums have gone both ways, THANKS!!
