Default Mac to PC (windows)?

Hi,

I have a mac G4, and I'm going to get a PC. I was woundering what do I do about maya being only for mac? I'm not going to spend another $2,000 on maya. Is there a way I can take maya 4.5 complete for mac back and get the pc version?

Any input on this would be great!

P.S.
Oh and the reason I'm getting a pc is because I want to upgrad to a more powerful computer, it take way to long to render on my mac which is a Dual 867 MHz. And that new Power mac G5 is $3,000 big ones! The pc I'm getting, which is $1,500, has 2.8GHz, do you guys think that would make any differents when it come to rendering?

Licensing is pretty much the same for Mac and Windows versions of Maya. The software is nodelocked to a specific hardware ID, so you can't simply reinstall on another machine. You need to go through Alias to get a new authorization code.
