Great point, Adrian. I did jump onto one of the new Dual 1GHz units, but I was more concerned with taking advantage of a big price drop (which occurred) than getting the absolute latest and greatest for all time. One thing is certain -- if my machine edits well today, it will edit just as well tomorrow, no matter what comes out. That doesn't stop the drooling, though!

Both of your comments are well taken.

I was thinking in terms of my project where I considered buying the machine and FCP prior to travelling to Costa Rica and Belize. I thought getting a handle on what FCP can and can't do might help me in deciding which shots to get. I knew this was foolish and I am glad I waited to buy my new machine until I got back and was ready to cut.

It goes without saying that if you have projects to work on right now then go ahead and upgrade. I also agree that my current machine can always perform at its current level no matter what else comes out. Given what can be done with DV and a personal computer, that says a lot.

Vic if we aren't drolling over all the gear we could have then it's because we're making big budget Hollywood features and our name is Steven Spielburg

Hell, a Dual 1Ghz G4 is a firebreathing weapon. That is enough to burn anyones DV fingers
