Price When Reviewed: 1701
Pros: Superb 2D graphics performance coupled with excellent value for money makes this the ultimate desktop Mac.
Cons: It’s not flexible enough to upgrade for 3D work, and the base supplied RAM is far too small. Supplied mouse still has only one button.
Apple’s new G5 isn’t nearly as groundbreaking as some of the new Windows PCs covered in our workstation group test in Digit 88, but it’s still an extremely impressive machine that can more than match all but the newest of its rivals. It offers excellent value-for-money, too.
