    mac mini or g5 for video editing
    hi
    im 14 and im looking to buy a mac for video editing.
    im not on a huge budget and i can only stretch to a mac mini.

    my question is which mac should i get, mac mini or g5.
    first off can the mac mini handle video editing. i have been looking at core 2 duo
    versions.

    thanks

    Well, lets start by what your budget is, its hard to say since some later model G5 computers do use intel core 2 duo processors as well, although I would put my money on the mac mini.
    iMac 2.93 i7 8GB 5750
    2010 Macbook 2.4 intel Core 2 Duo 4GB
    iPhone 4S 16GB & iPhone 4S 32GB
    iPad 16GB

    iMac late 2007 10.11.b4, iMac 2008 10.10.5, Macbook2007 10.7.5, Mac Mini 10.7.5, iPhone 3GS Note 8!!
    No G5 uses an Intel CPU. A G5 is a Power PC CPU by IBM. Has nothing to do with Intel.

    I would go with the Mini Intel if you can afford it.

    For that cost he could possibly get a used macbook I would think, and at least be portable at the same time.

    thanks for reply.
    what about the issue of ram.
    i cant afford the 8gb compatible version
    i can only get the version before the newest.

    taking that into consideration do you still think i should get the mac mini.
