    Yeah, there was another site that posted a bunch of things that made my eyes gloss over about the tests favoring the G5 over the PC.

    I think that slashdot article links to one of those sites.

    Not an issue for me, idon't care if it's faster than my PC, I just want it to blow away my ancient G4/400, and I'm quite sure it will. :p:

    Heh, G, I'm in _exactly_ the same boat. Although, I've had a PowerBook the last couple of months, I'm looking for a new desktop machine as well. I'm having a hard time deciding on a G5 or one of the newly discounted dual boot / processor G4s.

    The current machines are at least somewhat familiar.

    No telling what your current hardware and apps will do on a G5.

    I don't expect major problems, but for my business I'll wait until after January Macworld.

    I picked up an iBook back in April. I'll probably stick an 800MHz upgrade in my box. Transition both machines to Panther, then I'll think about a new desktop.
    ;)
