If the memory and PCI-X slot limitations of the dual-2.0GHz Power Mac G5 bother you, the dual-2.3GHz system may offer you the best balance of performance, technology, and cost.

    This dual-2.3 GHz Power Mac G5 is the middle dual-processor model of the third round of Power Mac G5 models, which were introduced in late April 2005. Unlike previous models, a 56K modem is only an option on this system.

    Pros

    • Good performance
    • PCI-X slots
    • Double-layer SuperDrive
    • Huge memory capacity
    • Big hard drive

    Cons

    • Extra performance and features compared with entry-level model may not justify $500 price premium
