Anyone out there with a Dual 500(ish) g4

Hi

Wonder if anyone can help - I'm currently Mac-less, I'd planned to get a Powerbook and do everything in laptop-land, but for various reasons (mainly money!) this might not be good at the moment.

I was wondering if there is anyone out there with one of the dual 500 machines out there? These seem good value, with reasonable power.

I'll be using Logic (natively), and Final Cut Pro - any power reports gratefully received. Oh, I intend to use OS X

Cheers

Pete

Thanks for the replies.

Very good points about the new Macs, I reckon I can get a dual 500 for around £650, which is probably not far off as low as it'll get - but will I be satisfied when the super computers come out?

It is making me think try and get a refurb'd PB a these are less likely to change.

Thanks again

Pete
