I am probably going to be trading in my PowerMac G5 1.6ghz and my Dell 2005fpw for an iMac. Since the 20" iMac has gone on sale now, I am really tempted to pick it up. It is selling for $1620 CAD, and my comp and display would be getting at least $1300. I would either be getting the G5 20" iMac or the new intel 17" iMac. My main use for the computer will be logic 7, but I can afford to wait for it to come out on universal binary (use Garageband for a few weeks). Most or all of the synths and other apps I use have been released as universal binaries as well, so I wouldn't have to change my setup too much. And I think I could give up some screen real estate if need be. My only reason for choosing the new intel iMac (over the G5) would be if it had a higher resale value. Would the intel iMac have a higher resale value because it is the newer model, or would the G5 have the higher resale, as it was initially a higher priced model. I'm estimating that if I bought a new iMac, I would probably keep it for about two to three years and then sell it. As a second idea, if anyone thinks that the resale value of the computers would drop drastically in that time, I could always give the computer to my parents to use as an upgrade from their 700mhz iMac G4.
