wee hee buy a mac... displays are second accurate to SGI. (silicon graphics)
no spy ware... no blaster virus... hardly any viral/hardware compatibility/OS support/ problems.
G5s are not the best 64bit processors around.. so get a good old back stock G4 (dual 1.25GHz, or sorts) and now u can buy good old back stock of old apple displays... =) cos' new one out... old sure to drop... did i say colours are accurate? hahhaa...
or get a 17inch G4 lappy... however i find teh g4 ibooks suffic.
just mac happy! sharing the luv~
Oh and macs work nicly with canon... for a long time now... so maybe the 70% are canon users as well hahaha...the old laser writers and apple inkjets were canon made... and carried stupid labels like "Caution: Do not expose Laserwriter to fire".
but wad impressed me was a studio photog was using teh G4 12inch with a phase one H10 digi-back and capture one softwaer(C1).. he's reletively well known and deals with celebs.
its a real small monster... happy deciding.. i use PCs too dont find anything wrong very wrong with them either..

oh, u might want to do a striped raid so that the hard disk access is faster.
but be warned that a backup for your storage is very important as striped raid is not suitable for long term storage

i'm interested in what moos blues said.
but does mac CPU + normal made-for-PC CRT monitor yield the same output as a mac CPU + mac CRT/LCD monitor?
also, how much does a G4 (dual 1.25GHz, or sorts) cost now? of course it's full system without display.

like i said, get an ibook/powerbook and hook up to your crt
just had to lug my 20kg desktop from 1 hostel room to another.
cursing and swearing all the way.
on the bright side, my new room is bigger

hehe it's tempting to get a ibook to hook to my CRT monitor.. but then, i don't have so much budget to start off! i can only fork out around $800 max for a CPU+motherboard+RAM+HDD upgrade
