Hello Everyone. I just registered to this forum but I have been having this die hard question stuck in my head for the past few days. Now Ive been using mostly PC's for the last 10 years, not to happy with it though mind you. I want to switch to mac but there are a few problems. I currently live in Turkey, and apple merchandise are twice as expensive, I have no chance of getting something from outside the country. The new Macbook Pro's are really expensive here. The thing is I am currently studying 2d and 3d aniamtion in University. I need a machine that will allow me to use Maya. After some research I found out that the latest maya [v8. and 2008] isnt G4 friendly, but I shouldnt be having problems using Maya 7. But Im not sure if taking a step back is a good idea either. I noticed that the G4 powerbooks are now pretty cheap in Turkey, almost something I can afford. Is it worth it ? Thanks in advanced.
