I'm bouncing back and forth between a new 17incher and a powermac. I would love to be able to view HD content on the system at at least 720p, but 1080 would be nice. I am also considering the elgato 500 DVR, and would love to hear others experiences with using the HD functions with a new powerbook with the 128 graphics card. My 1Ghz titanium has some issues playing anything other than the 480p files with the 64meg graphics card and 1 gig of ram, but the mini i bought my mother with only 512megs or ram seems to even play the 720 files well... interesting to say the least... I use my machine for design (photoshop, illustrator, flash, and some video and audio editing) but i do intend to use the new machine as a multimedia machine as far as video, since i may be buying the 30 inch cinema. The only game a really play on it is WoW, and would also be interested to know others experiences with it on their 17 inchers. Thanks for any input guys, this is really holding me up. I love the portablility of the powerbook now, but i am torn between a new one or the G5. thanks! technocoy oh and just in case you were thinking about it, i won't be able to keep my current Ti AND get a G5 since i will need the money from it's sale to help with buying the new system. otherwise i would just keep my lovely Ti and get a desktop G5. oh well, you can't have it all right?
