I have a question, currently i have a mac mini 1.42 with a gig of ram in it. But i of course want more power. so iam looking at the powermacs... but i wondering if i should get a Dp 2.0 or a single 1.8. i dont do any graphic work but i do encode avi's and mp3's would the DP 2.0 make a noticable diffrence?

The 1.8 isnt on the UK site anymore.

Plus, if you are going to spend £1000 on a PowerMac, you would be crazy not to add £145(something around that) to get a 200Mhz CPU speed increase, and another whole 2Ghz CPU.

when apple release new power macs what happens with the old ones? what i mean is do they just off load them to other retailers? like the SP 1.8? and do those models price go down at all?
