Ask Max: My aging G5 needs to be replaced, but should I wait for new Mac Pros?

Asked on 07/01/2010:

My aging Mac G5 Dual 2.7 Ghz can no longer use the latest Mac OS, and I am a heavy Photoshop user, who cannot even update to the newest Elements, without an Intel processor.

Should I get one of the (also aging) Mac Pro's, or wait until a new Mac Pro is released by Apple?

Any idea when that might be? It has been significantly over a year now since that model was updated.

Mac ProMac Pros are due for an update but Apple has been slowing down Mac development on the Pro side. We will often get indications of a future update via long delivery times or short supply in the channel. We have not see any of those signs of change with the Mac Pro. If you need a Mac Pro in the next 60 days, I would get the one you want now but that is just a educated guess.

Hope that helps
