Default Re: Opinions wanted: P4 2.8 ghz to Powerbook 1.25

In terms of raw power the PC will be faster. There are fewer plugins available for PC and if exchanging studio sessions with another Pro Tools facility you are better off with Mac. I do not feel the Powerbook should be a main platform for heavy mixing sessions. It's great for recording and doing quick edits.

Currently the high-end Xeon computers are quite fast, but they are at least the same cost (or more) than dual G5 desktops. I'd like to see Digi release a G5 optimized version of Pro Tools that takes advantage of the 64-bit processors. Performance would be increased dramatically.
