I am looking for something that would equal a Mac G5 in performance, keeping in mind that Windows is far more bloated than Mac OS. Can anyone help me estimate? Besides the basic set of running applications, I'd be running 2-3 design applications at the same time (InDesign or Quark XPress and Photoshop, for example), with large (20+ mb) files open in each, and I need to be able to do it with comfort and ease. I can not simply get a Mac G5 because that would require getting a full new set of design software and a new mp3 player, so that would be too much of a hassle. I've never seen pirated Mac versions of design applications.
