Default Hardware Advice

Hi Guys,

Been thinking of upgrading my system to do more Maya animation work and to reduce the time on rendering. Currently using both PC and Mac in the office and at home. What do you suggest?

1) Apple G4 PowerPC Dual-Processor 1.25Ghz

2) 4 pieces of P4 2Ghz PC

The G4 will be running by itself where as the PCs will be hooked up as a network. It may seem to be a no brainer going with the PC, but i still get people swearing by the Mac. Both will cost the same brand new. Hope you can advice.

Thanks.
Merv! (Singapore)

I would choose 4 pentiums,

don't know why but to me it seems that 4 cpu are better then 2 (even though macs are good).
