Default It\'s been a long time...

...since I've visited the DUC. Guess in the meantime I am a dinosaur still (since 1998) using my PT MIX 24 System on a G4 867MHz. Coming to my question: Although I am still happy as a pig in [bleep] with my system I was wondering how I could make it more flexible, i.e. to change it to a mobile one. Due to the fact that music is not my main income source anymore I don't want to spend a five-digit number of Euros on a new system just to get a few hundreds out of it again in the next six months. So I was thinking to up-, down-, side- (or whatever you want to call it) -grade it to a PT LE system. As a recently looked on the digidesign website (cool new design BTW) I saw that they still have the DIGI 002 (this must be on sale for 6 or 7 years now) and they've got this new M-Powered stuff, that looks more homerecording like, but seems to perform equally good as the LE material. Is it so?
Probably I overslept in my cellar the technological development over the last decade but I just ordered a MacBook Pro 2,16 GHz C2D with 2 GB RAM (have to use it for my other work as well).
So what would you recommend? Should I stick on my old TDM-System until it falls apart, or should I go for a LE system? Is the native power of the processor better or worse than the six DSPs on the mix farm card? And what's the real difference between the LE and the M-Powered ProTools? Yes I did look on the website but I couldn't find anything that convinced me at last, that LE is significantly better (beside the optics).
To bring it to the point, which performs best?
1. G4 867 Mhz, PT MIX 24
2. MBP 2,16 GHz + DIGI 002
3. MBP 2,16 GHz + FireWire 1814
As I don't know to which forum this post belongs to, I've postet it in all three forums. Sorry for any inconvenience because of this. Still I would be happy to get some recommendations from you, even ironic ones if you are into it.

Thank you in advance
