Just toured the animation department at full sail today and saw all the sexy apple powermac g5's running maya. I thought the G5's where obsolete, but apparently not. I actually want a powermac G5 now, but the cheapest ones I can find are the models with 1.6Ghz, and I'm afraid that wont be enough. Plus, I'd have to purchase maya since I only have 3ds max. Though, I perfer maya because of it's MEL scripting. What do you guys think?
