Pros MAC is based on Unix system, which is perhaps the most stable system out there. The G5 will become even more stable as a better update is soon to come. AMD 64-bit is trash, it has terrible drivers, and can only be compared to with games that designed to r
Cons Loud HD.
Pros All the software functions flawlessly. Easy to learn, even after 10 years away from Mac's. Installing software is an ease, no compatability issues. The best computer to have if you use Adobe products.
Cons Price, but piece of mind has no price and ironically, a compatible PC cost more

Pros Outstanding design, elegant OS, gorgeous Cinema Display
Cons Initial cost (offset by reliability)
Summary My G5 2.0 Dual Processor has be great for two years! OS X is awesome, especially on the 23" Cinema Display. I can do 10 things at once on this machine without missing a beat. Customer service has been great and I've only had to call a couple of times during the first month of ownership. The beautiful Apple Stores make owning the G5 even better- with the free classes and demonstrations.
If you haven't checked out an Apple Store yet- you're in for a surprise!

Pros speed, versatility, did i mention speed? expansive space, just feels like the future
Cons big daddy, but we knew that coming in. tough to plug things in the back because it's so big it has to be on the floor
Summary anyone who has done their research knows that the G5 is the king of the apple line. my partner operates a home music studio, so he applies an intensive no of applications, like pro tools and the like. we had a imac previously and that was like kindergarten compared to a master's degree. i use the computer to write, as a journalist, and for the usual internet wandering. we paid a fortune -- $5,000 -- but life is good in front of the computer. we got it from macconnection.com, which offered free shipping and free memory upgrade. they were super fast, too. highly recommended. we love our max mac.
