Editorial Wishful thinking? Yes, but let's consider the possibilities. The last couple years have seen significant advances in hardware production and design. One of the more interesting (and potentially revolutionary) developments to take place this past year is the announcement of a new CPU, the STI (Sony, Toshiba, IBM) Cell processor.

The power of the Cell processor is clearly good for gaming issues. I see no need of this for dekstop computer.
- You like games ? See what xBox 2 and PS3 will soon be able do
- You use it for Internet/mail/Word/mp3/divx/DVD ... in fact, low power needs ? No need of this Cell computer, a good Centrino Dothan do the job on ;y laptop with 5 hours of battery and not a simple noise. No need of a cell.
- You use it for a specific task ? For video editing, we have Avid dedicated stations or Apple VideoStations ... like said in a previous post, i think a Adobe dedicated station would be a nice idea too, why not on a G5 CPU.

- for video -> Avid
- for sound -> ProTools
- for everyday use -> Centrino with Zeta (Zeta for to simplicity of use, the responsivness and cause no viruses)
- for the attitude and Images/print -> Apple
- for 3d stuffs -> PC

That's what would be my way ... dedicated plateforms

Eh Kris, want Google to store your datas ?? Use gdrive and put all your documents on it if you want ... but open a A3/300 DPI PSD file from this account, even with a 100 mb/s internet connection and you will understand what i mean ;)
