OK to keep this simple: I work with After Effects, DVD Authoring program and final Cut Studio I have PC now and will need to buy new all new software moving to Mac. Love new technology and my 2 choices i want to go are the MBP or powerPC either Quad or Dual. I know all the software compabilties problems with the new intel and they will be worked out in a year and a half or so. So my questions are: Do i stick with the slow processing temporarily with the MBP, which will be faster in a year (running Natively) or just buy the PowerPC Dual or quad now and suffer the $1800 more and which I will have to upgrade to the new technology in atleast 2 years when all the kinks are worked out with the new intel chips???????? Money does play a little factor but about a $1000 difference does now mean too much to me for the most part and i have to buy a monitor for the PowerPC. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!
