Hi- i'm used to be a pro film composer in Hollyweird. I've used Macs exclusively since 1988. My first was a Mac SE, a screaming machine with 512K of RAM. i even went hardcore and bought a 100 megabyte hard drive that only cost me $1000.00
When I upgraded to a Mac Ci in 1992, I got serious and bought a 1.5 gig drive for $3000.00. Today, I picked up a 8 gig flash drive for 16 bucks.
I am behind the curve at this point, floundering on a PPC Quad 2.5ghz running 10.4.11 with 7 gig of ram. I have 40K invested in music software, and the leap to 10.5.8 is prohibitive right now, as I am battling a brain tumor and 3 brain anuerisms. 16 brain operations have left me broke but unbowed, even stuck in the knowledge that I am an antique.
Hearing the Mac greet me every morning is the only constant left in my life. I'll take it
