Currently using a Wallstreet G4/500 - but it won't drive a monitor so I'm in the market for a Mac Desktop. I don't do anything highend - just normal office, web, light iphoto work and some Java. Watch movies and itunes.etc. I have a real limited budget - just about $1200 (and I'll need ram, etc). So, I am trying to decide what the better purchase is for my needs- a G4 DP 867 or a 1.6 G5. I know they are real high now - but they may come down later in the month and I can get a Educational discount. From what I've read a DP will be better than a SP. One consideration is noise - I'd lean towards the G5 if it is real quiet..
