Apple's Power Mac G5 Dual 2.5GHz is powerful and good value for money, according to UK newspaper, The Independent.

The Independent writes that while there may be faster computers on the market, "few wield their power as unobtrusively as the latest - and fastest - G5 Mac".

And the price is good too. Reviewer Stephen Pritchard writes: "The top of the range G5 is not that expensive. A Dell Precision workstation, with a similar configuration to the one used in Apple's tests, costs more."

"The G5 is tightly integrated and represents good value for money. Users who run high-end creative applications will need one. Lots of others will want one, even if it does resemble a portable dehumidifier," he concludes.
