Graphics, User Interfaces Adobe has announced it is dropping PowerPC support from its next version of the Creative Suite for the Mac. "By the time the next version of the Suite ships, the very youngest PPC-based Macs will be roughly four years old. They're still great systems, but if you haven't upgraded your workstation in four years, you're probably not in a rush to upgrade your software, either. Bottom line: Time & resources are finite, and with big transitions underway (going 64-bit-native, switching from Carbon to Cocoa), you want Adobe building for the future, not for the past."

By opaque you mean matte screen, yes? Apple now offers the 15" with an antiglare finish. Need more battery power than 8 hours? Get one of these:

Kind of a non-issue. As for your system's performance; Even most G5 systems are left behind by the cheapest MacBook Pro in terms of performance. I can't see how you'd possibly want to avoid upgrading.
