    Hello everyone,
    I am new here. I currently own a 17" macbook pro that I use for video editting (weddings etc.) One of my buddies has aa 20" Imac G5 1 gig, 2.1 GHZ processor and 250 GB hard drive. He is offering it to me for $200? Would you make the purchase or try to get a G5 tour that can be upgraded more? I would be using this for video editting.

    On the fence
    Your macbook pro will definitely be faster and generally better for video editing than an iMac g5, which I would not purchase anyhow, as they are known for having several annoying problems.

    To clarify, I would not buy any G5 at this point, as there is very little current software compatible with them.

    If i tried to sell you melted ice cream for $2 would you buy it?
    No because it's worthless... Just like this Mac
    If he was your buddy he would give it to you
    Heck, if I hated you I'd give it to u just to get rid of it
