So I want to do very cool video editting. I want to use Final Cut Pro. I want to use A.Pack. I want to have all the fun little toys that come with both. I need a G4, some ram, and some speed. Nothing to major.

Jon recommended I get a G5. So I specked one out. Base price was 1500 dollars, which for a top of the line new computer, isn’t all that bad. I then customized it for the purpose of this post to what I would love to have. Now it’s your turn… Guess the cost of the following machine:

Dual 2.5GHz PowerPC G5
• 8GB DDR400 SDRAM (PC3200) – 8x1GB
• 2x250GB Serial ATA – 7200rpm
• NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL
• Apple Cinema HD Display (30" flat panel)
• Apple Cinema HD Display (30" flat panel)
• AirPort Extreme Card
• Bluetooth Module
• 56k V.92 modem
• 8x SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW)
• PCI-X Gigabit Ethernet Card
• Fibre Channel PCI-X Card (w/SFP-SFP cable)
• Bluetooth Module + Apple Wireless Keyboard & Mouse – U.S. English
• Mac OS X – U.S. English
• Mac OS X Server v10.3 (Unlimited-Client)
• AppleCare Protection Plan for Power Mac (w/ or w/o Display)

Any guesses? No?


If you guessed 15,000 american dollars, you would be correct.
