    I am thinking about getting one when they come out, but it's a lot of monies and I would have to have some sweet paying gigs to really justify a home computer like that. On the other hand, I'd be using it for FCP...god the rendering is so slow on my powerbook :crying:

    When Adobe comes out with Creative Suite native for the Intel chip, I'll upgrade from my current G4 tower. It's a bit long in the tooth, but I wuvs it. Still runnin' like a charm.

    As a Graphic Artist, I'm stuck til then. I don't really have a choice.

    at least Final Cut Pro is universal :hs:

    I find myself being able to afford an iMac, but I have a 24" screen already. What a waste it would be...maybe I'll just buy a new macbook pro when they get revised :dunno:
