I just found out tonight that the Apple Store near me has a few of the old G4 PowerMacs available for only $1294.00. I'm an average home office user and I use my computer for Internet, email, accounting, AppleWorks, Word, QuickBooks, PageMaker, PhotoShop Elements, photos, itunes, scanning photos and documents, etc. Would I be better off buying a new dual 1.8 G5 or should I save the money and get one of the old G4 Powermac towers. What are your thoughts? A new dual 1.8 G5 for $1999.00 or buy the PowerMac G4 for $1294.00?? (about a $700.00 savings)...... Is the PowerMac G4 a nice system. I believe the ones they have in stock are single processors. Is it worth spending the additional $700.00 for the G5 and 8x SuperDrive?
