hi

looking at a imac 17" g5 1800mhz and was wondering if we have any lightwave users out there who are using the g5 based imacs and what their thoughts on the imac g5 for day to day lightwave usage?

also are their any render time comparisons between the g4 and g5 as i'd like to know how it would stack up against a g4 imac as well as intel based winboxes.

rendertimes are not my main concern though would be interesting to see.

cheers

iMacs are just now starting to ship in quantity, so it may be some time before you find a lightwave user that has one. At many Apple stores there is a waiting list for them.
