Hi, Im considering getting a mac, either a desktop or a laptop. size as far as desktop doesnt matter, as far as laptop I would prefer something bigger than 12". the reason why I am posting this in the desktop forums is because I am looking at a Powermac G5 2.3ghz. it comes with only 1gb of ram, osx 10.5, 250gb hd, and this is the 2005 model so the ram can be upgraded up to 8gb (not 16). now I dont want to get a desktop that doesnt succeed my current one (hp pavilion slimline s3400f pc) I can get this computer without keyboard or mouse, for around 300 dollars (US)..specs on my computer are: 2.70ghz dual core, 4gb ram, 500gb hd, vista 32bit and 64bit ubuntu 10.04... I would mainly be using it for homework and watching videos on the internet, maybe light video and picture editing and music recording (through an art tube pre interface).. I could get a 2ghz dp, for around 225 to 250, is the 75ish dollar save worth it for the .3ghz difference? what do you guys think? on the other hand if I got a laptop I wouldnt really care if it didn surpass my current computer because I would use it mainly for word and internet and dvds... edit: I would love a macbook even form like 2006, but they are still around 500, and I dont have that much right now.
