Hey. I was planning on buying an apple computer for the uses of digital movie editing with probably Final Cut Express and maybe something else. I would also do some Photoshop probably. Would an iMac G5 do the job (I was considering 20'' maybe) or should I just go for the PowerMac G5?
Thanks a alot!

Well, the PowerMac will easily beat the iMac, it's performance is much better, even if both use a G5.
Nevertheless the iMac is powerful enough to do video editing, so your choice should be based on two things:
1. Do you really need the best available performance?
2. How much money can you spend.
The PowerMac is by far more expensive (because you'll need an additional screen) but a better performer too...
That's why Apple has it's consumer hardware (i...) and professional hardware (Power...)

I do really think that the iMac G5 is VERY good value, with very good perfromance as well. I would think it would be alot faster than a Powerbook.
