Hello All, Last summer I purchased a Sawtooth G4 400 mhz machine to learn the ways of the mac on. This coming spring I will be auditioning for various colleges to major in Percussion and would like a modest setup to record myself on. I have looked at old Powermac G4's and G5's on eBay. I basically just want a machine to use Sibelius, Garageband, and maybe digital performer on so that I can record myself. While it would be nice to have a webcam like the one built into iMacs, I can buy a USB one I would rather have a headless mac to carefully stow away. My main issue here is cost and I would rather not have to spend more than 500 dollars for the whole package, including a minidisc microphone and iMic. I will be going to college next fall and am planning to buy a brand new Macbook or Macbook Pro so I would like to not splurge as much on a machine that I will leave here for most of the year. So far I have looked at Powermac G5's and they seem to run around the 400 USD mark for single core machines. Would a single CPU G5 be a better investment than a dual cpu newer G4? While it would be possible to use my pc for recording, my pc's are VERY loud and I do not have pc software for sibelius or other software. Which set up should I choose?
