hi everyone, i am about to leave windows and use mac.

i am mainly doing audio (Reason, Protools, logic ect)

i am gonna be running an MBOX and an EDIROL fa-101 and am very conflicted over the powerbook or the new G5 imac.

does anyone know the diffrenece between the 2 when running audio applications or doing multitrack recording.

how much diffrence is a (1.5gz G4) vs a (1.8gz G5) both with the same amount of ram.

i plan to purchase the computer some time this week

the G5 has much more horsepower than the G4, but If you wanna take the system on the road and do live recordings or remote studio set up then I think you would prefer the laptop
Quicksilver 867, 700mhz iBook, 1st Gen iPod, iSight, Newton 2100, and a 128k Mac. All operating and used on a constant Basis
