HELP! I am really interested in hearing your opinions. I find myself at the typical Mac-user crossroad- to upgrade or not to upgrade? That is the question. I have an aging "smurf" 400 MHZ PPC G3 that has served me well. But she is a bit dated and slowly dying on me (sniff, sniff). So I was thinking of getting one of those snazzy Quicksilver multi processor 1.25 GHZ G4's. But with all the hoopla about Apple possibly releasing new G5's (or whatever they will call the next gen of processors), I am debating if waiting till July or fall 2003. My logic to get it now? I kinda need it now. I do use it for work. I do have the money now. The G3 is acting bit whacky and I am not going to fix it if I am definitely buying a new one. But at the same time, I don't want the same thing that happened to me last time; I think I was the last buyer of a "smurf" G3 the day before G4's were launched. Pros and cons? Dual 1.25 G4's is a pretty fast computer. And I have seen in action, and it seems to work fine. I would use it for graphic work. But I am not really rendering 3D, doing heavy video, or anything that requires absolutely insane amounts of proc speed. So if one of this Quicksilver G4 would work fine for me, does it make sense for me to wait for one of those rumored "super GHZ-multi processor- G-whatever" PPC? Which, by the way, no one has really seen or God knows when they will be available. But then again, if I save up my money till July and those computers do hit the market, I would be buying a faster computer for the same money. And knowing Apple, as soon as G5's hit the market, they will do everything to phase out the G4 I would just have bought. On the other hand, if those G5's do hit the market; we all know it would take a lot of time before they become standarized. Is the G4 such a bad processor? I keep hearing about how its architecture is not the best. I read about how the Mortorola G4 proc are what create the bottleneck when it comes to processing in the Quicksilver PPC's. Is this really a problem for "normal" users. How good are Quicksilver PC's in handling Java, opening aps, encoding MP3's, and in such regular tasks? Will a G5 really give a new meaning to my life? Will I suddenly feel compelled to grab a bullhorn and run down the street naked screaming about the benefits of G5's? OK, I am getting carried away. Hehe ARGGGGHH!! I hate the dilema!!! Please give me some useful opinions. Especially from users that currently own or bought a G4. I need to make a decision soon.
