Personally, I would wait until the new G5s are released, allowing for price reductions on the first-gen G5s. Not that the G4 is a bad machine (I have a dually G4 at my office), but with the new machines coming soon, you might find some good deals on some G5s. My father has a G5 1.6 GHz and he's happy with the speed. For the record, he's a commercial artist and works with Illustrator, Photoshop, and PageMaker (through Classic Mode).
