Thread: G5 Pwbk

I'm just about to buy a 17" G4 Powerbook for my music production.
I heard that IBM have just finished making the components for the G5 Powerbook and that the product line should be ready for this summer.
I have a question for those wired dudes : -
Now, should I go and buy the G4 next week?
Wait until the summer for the G5?
Do you think that the newest release will be faulty and will comprise my work with the hardware etc.? Is it better to stay with a long running product like the G4? or am I talking bull sh**?
Would love to have some feedback.

It all depends on your need and what you plan to do with it. What are your requirements?

and a big screen for location recording.
That's about it.

As far as running on battery, I expect the battery life will be pretty much the same as with the current Powerbooks. That's just a guess though; it depends on how IBM/Apple engineer the PB version of the chip and its power management.
