I am really into video editing, and I have an imac g4 right now(800Mhz) and want to get a new mac but I am on a budget of about $3000 for the computer itself. I will be doing that financing deal with apple. I like the idea of a 17" or 15" powerbook. i have seen this bag that is designed jsut for the 17" powerbook and a camera. I thought it was a really cool idea. I think the portability would be nice, but I am into after effects and fcp. I don't think the new powerbooks could handle after effects well, and I would like to use motion. Is the g5 powermac my only option? should I keep waiting until a g5 powerbook comes out? will a g5 powerbook really big a big improvement, will it handle motion? drop me a line about what you suggest. If I went with a powermac, I think I could either get a dual 2.5 Ghz with a crt off brand monitor. if i went with a dual 1.8 ghz, I could get a apple display. what do you think?
