Notwithstanding the fear of starting another volatile thread, I give you this latest announcement from Adobe that has many industry watchers tickled/irked.
Put succinctly, this is the fastest workstation we’ve tested, too, by a long shot. Wow. We ran our After Effects and Photoshop benchmarks on this machine, nine in all, and saw a speed improvement that was far beyond what we anticipated. Mac users will be disappointed to see that this new Dell machine, while priced $629 less than the Mac Dual G4 1.25 GHz machine, was nearly twice as fast on most of the nine benchmarks we ran.
