    So I have the opportunity to trade my Macbook Pro for a PowerMac G5 + Cinema Display. Here are the specs of each

    my MBP:
    15" Core 2 Duo 2.33ghz Glossy
    3gigs of RAM
    200gig 7200rpm
    Leopard 10.5.1
    AppleCare until like December 2009

    his PowerMac g5:
    Dual 1.8ghz
    1.5gig RAM
    80gig HD
    100gig HD
    airport card
    older style cinema display 20"
    adobe cs3 master collection
    final cut studio 2
    + $200 cash


    I do a lot of graphics and video production, and I'm wondering if this would be a good/bad trade, if I should ask for anything else.

    Hope this is the right place to ask this.

    Thanks

    Stick with the Macbook Pro it will be way more powerful. Unless however you need the software.

    If it's not a good trade, how much would be a good asking price if I were to sell my MBP to buy a MacPro? How much should I ask for this:

    15" MacBook Pro 2.33ghz Core 2 Duo Glossy
    3gigs RAM
    200gig 7200rpm HD / (120gig HD included but not installed)
    Leopard 10.5.1 (Tiger disks included but not installed)
    InvisibleShield Full Body shield
    Speck SeeThru Case (used until InvisibleShield came)
    All original accessories (charger, box, dvi to vga cable, etc.)
    AppleCare until December 2009
    Mint condition, 1 scratch on the lid

    I'd ask for about $2200-2400 seems fair to me.
