I have an interesting dilemma. I hope you enjoy the read as it's a bit long. As far as PowerBook fans go, I'm about as fanboy as you can get without hospitalization. But these new PowerMacs are so drool-worthy, I can't help but ponder. I use my 17" 1.67 for college, gaming, Photoshop work, short films and web design. So nothing too processor intensive, which is why the PowerBook was ideal for me. Except for gaming. The gamer in me cries out: "you need to play Quake 4! There is going to be a World of Warcraft expansion! Doom 3 could be fun!" The PowerBooks handle WoW pretty well, but again... every system has its limits (and honestly I don't know how it performs in raids). Except maybe this Quad G5. It isn't 3GHz, but it may as well be. I think we all collectively fainted. It obviously will have a huge impact on many sectors... but my question is this: how do you think it will perform for gaming? I considered building a gaming PC, even a Linux build, but I would never do it. I'd either stick with my PowerBook or go all out with a G5. Or staying with my PowerBook could be an exercise in restraint. After all, I would probably game my brains out. Not good in college. A G5 would be good because the only games I play are almost always ported to Mac anyway; and I'd use it for a lot more than gaming. The price is seductive. As a student developer I can purchase a stock Quad G5 with a 20" Cinema for $3358. If I sold my PowerBook for $2500, that's an easy $800 I could make this summer. That's a whole lot of computer for $800! I have no interest in waiting for Intels. Dual-core, PCIe and DDR2 sound good to me. Whatcha think? Am I diagnosed with "web browsing on a Quad-itis" or would this be sweet?
