    I'd try and stretch to a newer iMac if I were you. You'll be livin in the dark ages with a G4. Good choice on the d300/400 though :D

    Sounds like a good day to me... I love to window shop!

    Go with the G4 processors. There's no real reason to buy a Mac for graphic processing when it is using an intel processor... They lost their niche.

    I think that the G4 should suffice, as long as the processor is running at 1GHz and up, and you've got a gig of RAM or more. I'm currently using an iBook G4 with that setup, and Photoshop CS3 actually runs quite well. If you do get it, make sure to put Tiger on it and update it through software update. Then you can put CS3 on it. Have fun!

    Once you go Mac, you never go back...

    Seriously, though I went Mac, and then went back. I didn't see any real advantage to running Mac for me personally. But that was before I got in to photography. Now Aperture is looking mighty nice...

    BTW you're gonna love your computer. Though if you're like most Mac users, you'll upgrade to something like a 28" monitor in no time. :)

    I didn't pick up the iMac. I kind of browsed over that and got to the guts of it :)

    Its all good, either way.

    I know that on the newer iMacs there is a mini-DVI port at the back that with an extra adapter goes to DVI or VGA. I don't know about the G4 though.
