In light of the Snow Leopard announcement, the time has come to start thinking about replacing my G5 PowerMac with an Intel-based computer. But which one? While I do a lot of web surfing and MS Office work, I'm also a photographer who uses Aperture and Photoshop a lot. I use 4 - 5 1TB drives (mostly storage), and tend to have several applications open at once. I'm often multitasking - a dozen tabbed websites on two web browsers (Safari and Firefox), Photoshop open, Aperture open, Word and Excel open, iTunes playing, Mail, Calendar, and 2-3 more programs also operating at the same time. I currently have one Dell 20" monitor, but plan to either get a 26-30" monitor, or use a dual monitor system in the near future. I calibrate my monitor(s). I have one, dual-bay, SATA enclosure and one single SATA external case. I also want a new monitor too. I want the NEC 26" 2690 or the more expensive 30" 3090, but don't have the money for purchasing both a computer and the monitor at the same time. With Snow Leopard shipping in August, I'll likely buy a new Mac before I purchase a new monitor. However, is this the best priority? Should I wait for new Mac Pro's? If so, how long would I need to wait? Anyway, what Mac would you suggest for me and why?
