quick background on needs: i do a lot of digital photography/imaging, and my 15" 1GHz PB is my traveling workhorse that holds every little thing until i can get it onto an external HD. there's also a fair amount of graphics/production work as well, so 80GB is starting to get small. i'm running CS and Canon software along w/ MS Awful 2004 w/ 1.25GB of RAM. and on to the question: do i pick up a fully-loaded legacy G4 15" PB (probably the 1.67GHz, 100GB HD) and crunch along until the MacBook Pro (still hate the name) and Universal apps get to be more of the order of the day (read: about 1.5-2 years)? or do i keep the current G4 15" and hop on the MacBook ferris wheel sometime next year? mitigating factors: that loss of Firewire 800 issue still has my panties in a bunch and the DL SuperDrive would be a real miss as well. however, with my Photoshop files easily reaching the 200MB range, that 3-4x speed would be a considerable boon to my workflow .
