Well I originally thought about getting a dual 2ghz Powermac but, I thought (for once) long and hard and thought it wouldnt be a good decision because quite frankly my room is rather small and isn't really big enough for another desktop (I have a pc). So then I got into the whole Powerbook scene. I read several reviews on them and they seem like a nice computer but, the reason I was going to get a powermac was to be able to make nice videos. Also, I wanted to make a switch to an mac because they are very dependable and I use an emac every day at school and I absolutely love it. So now after I give you a brief overview of my situation, let me get to what I escentially going to be using this mac for. Well I would like it to be able to run Photoshop CS and Final Cut Express. Those are a must. Also I would like it to be smooth. So what I am asking is, will a 1.67ghz Powerbook (15") be enough to run those programs smoothly? Also should I wait for the Powerbook thats coming out in 2006 thats suppose to have a dual core processor? Sorry for the long post but, this will be my first mac although I use one everyday at school. Games arent important either. I never really planned on making it a gaming machine. Thats what the A8N SLI mobo and 6800U are for Once again, Thanks!
