It hurts sometimes to read people who disfavor the single G5 processors. I am a designer, and when I had a decent college budget and wanted to buy a G5 last March, the 1.6 model seemed to work with the money I had. I added more HD space (160GB) more RAM (a gig) and wireless, bluetooth, superdrive, applecare... I run Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash, keep Mail open, iChat (sometimes Adium) and I have never had problems. I love my little engine that CAN. Yes, a dual would be nice. Hopefully when I get a job, they will supply some decent machines. Are there any other singles (as in 1.6/1.8 G5 Powermacs) who feel there machine is sufficient for their needs? Cheers.
