Hello everyone. I will be buying a new MacBook Pro sometime in early 2008. I currently use an iMac G3 from the "Dark Ages" (Bondi). I don't know how I've put up with the G3 for as long as I have. So I really need a desktop Mac for home use and to tide me over until I can purchase the MBP. I've been back and forth between a new Intel iMac or a used/refurb Dual G5 Powermac. I'd be using the computer for video/photo editing, Word/Excel, games (WoW), programming in Xcode. I'm looking at the 2GHz Dual G5 in the $1000 to $1500 range. If I get a G5, I was thinking about running it to my HDTV as the display. Can you even do this with the iMac? Or maybe a 3rd party solution? I like the Powermac for its expandability. Not much can be added internally to the iMac (or MacBook Pro for that matter). But the iMac has the current Intel platform. All my software is for PPC obviously. Although, I don't have a problem upgrading to the newer Universal apps. I might keep the computer (which ever one I buy) as an alternate home system after I buy the MBP next year. Would it be a good idea to have a PPC desktop and an Intel laptop? If I did decide to sell next year to help pay for the MBP, which would give me a better resell value on eBay? I'm probably thinking about this too hard. Can anyone make it a more simple decision? Thanks.
