    >will not be replaced for at least another 5-10 years.
    >Tammie Tonniges, Teacher
    >Tammie - We are about to do the same upgrade to our current lab (we use
    >Illustrator, Photoshop & Quark). Here's what we argued:

    failure. It happens!
    2. 17" screen has higher resolution than 15" on iMac.
    3. G4, in addition to a faster processor, is much more upgradable - a real
    concern if you are going to keep 'em for a while.
    4. Speed is REALLY important in graphics.
