But we're always influenced by what we see, particularly when we've gotten past what is outright impossible, such as navy blue tires<G>. I think I could wind up finding myself disappointed by the printed piece just because it is even more difficult for it to "match" the monitor.

There's still time for me to decide to spend $$$$ more on a Mac Pro, but I'm not terribly happy with that.

Why do these "prosumer" products always seem to give with one hand and take away with the other? <BG>
I'm running XP on a 3ghz Dual-Core processor with 2gb or ram and I frequently have Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Extensis Suitecase, MS Outlook and 5 (give or take) firefox windows open at any one time. Plus CommandWorkstation for printer management and I've yet to have a problem with ANYTHING being slow or non-responsive.
