This is my first post here at MacRumors. I've lurked here for a year or two, and decided to register and ask a question today. I currently on a MacBook Pro (2.4 GHz Penryn, 2GB ram, multi touch) and I love it, however I do have an issue with it. I can only run 1 external monitor with it. I started thinking about possible solutions. Of course I first thought of the mac pro. I looked at both brand new, educationally discounted, refurbished, and ebay offerings and none fit my budget. The Power Mac G5 however, does. So this is what I do with my Mac on a day to day basis. I would preferrbly like to do what I do, but x2 or x3, however screen real estate and ram limit my productivity. So at any given moment on my MBP, I have: 10-15 Tabs open in Safari Mail iTunes Numbers Adium chat program Transmit FTP 5-10 Tabs open in Dreamweaver CS3 5 Files open in Photoshop CS3 As your probably know, my ram is often times 100% used (I monitor it with the application vmstat). Now would a dual processor, say 1.8 or 2.0 GHz, PM G5 with around 4-8GB of ram be able to keep up with what I do? I'd like to do everything above, but have much more tabs open in Safari, and a few more projects open in Dreamweaver and Photoshop. And finally, I'd love to be able spread that across a few monitors, ideally 3-4. Is the Power Mac G5 the right solution for me?
