Default Re: upgrade worth it?

I also have a G4/400. I'm waiting for the 867Mhz to drop in price when the new G4s and G5s are announced - I think that will be in a month or so. If you can hold out, it will be worth it. If you need to make music now, then, of course, buy it now. Just like buying ANY computer hardware, it gets cheaper, faster, and better over time.

It WAS a bummer that no upgraded G4 CPUs we're announced at MacWorld yesterday... [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

The 867Mhz seems to work well (now) with PTLE, and I would wait a bit after ANY new release before trying it with PTLE. There could be initial compatibility problems.

If you search the archives for "performance", you'll see a ton of tests people have done comparing Mac CPU speeds and the various numbers of plugins they get.
