I wandered into my local computer store today and saw a 20" iMac G5 2.1G sitting there begging to be bought. It's on special, but I still think it's a little overpriced. I was holding out to get a Rev B Intel Mac, but ultimately, I don't need the ability to boot into Windows, all I want is a decently fast machine. In that case I might just get a G5 now, if I can get it for the right price. I want something to last for the next 4-5 years. So I have a couple of questions. 1. Would I notice a huge difference between my beloved PB (specs below - slightly battered, but it merely adds character) and the G5? I'm keeping the PB btw. It will continue to be very useful for me in college well into the future. 2. Is the Intel iMac a lot better than the G5? If it is substantially better I might just wait a while. 3. Are we likely to see major revisions that would really put the G5 out of business. 4. What sort of discount from the price of an Intel iMac should the retailer be looking at? I get the feeling they may be open to offers to offload them. Percentage terms please - I live in Euroland where everything seems to be more expensive. Lastly, just one question about using 2 macs together - 5. Is there a really easy way to keep them synced (or at least a fairly substantial folder with my notes) To give you an idea on my usage Internet, WP etc Photos (not so much since I'm studying, but I plan to get into it in a bigger way over the summer) I have PS elements and the PB is slow enough with it (and you try editing a 3000x2000 photo on a 12" screen!) Home video editing with DVD burning. Not much gaming (Maybe Age of Empires 11, but that's about it). Probably will do a bit of web design, and I will be building a site for collaboration with some other students next year.
