I have a Power Mac G5 and I love it. Ok,I wish it could run Fruity Loops, but that's Image Line's fault I guess. Long story short,I now need a computer with an intel processor. I can't upgrade from Reason 4 without it. I can't upgrade from Pro Tools 7 to 10. I can't use various new plug ins. I feel like I have a Mercedes with low milage but fuel companies have stopped producing gasoline.Get a MacPro?Have you seen the prices? I can't get a MacPro + crossgrades on my budget.This leads me to my next option and question. Are the new PCs with the Intel I-7 processors and TB hd and 6+gb of memory just as good as a Mac for music production and recording? I like the sound I have and don't want it to change. Will I notice any difference in workflow? Sound quality? I have a friend who says music produced on a Mac sounds better.Will I have to change the fans on the PC for quieter fans? I read on here where a member said that software companies don't make 64bit software with 64bit Windows in mind. Can I get some facts?
