    I found this MAC for $500. Do you think it’s a good deal. Is it going to be powerful enough for running Cubase with Native Instruments?

    Processor Speed: 1.6 GHz Processor

    Even though I think it would run it fine, since I have a PC setup with about the same specs, I would go for the Intel Macs.

    Its a pretty big jump from Power PC to Intel Mac, just from working on video at my church. Every now and then you should be able to find a first or second generation Mac Pro. Since Apple last year now makes just dual quad core Mac Pros, you should be able to find a dual dual core somebody is upgrading from. Also eventually support for Power PC will go away as well.

    I agree with Dun, I have a intel mac (imac) and it runs ANYTHING I throw at it. Buuut, that price is good for what you are getting so I would say it is a great buy.
