The new clock speeds and other changes mean that Apple will be offering "the world's fastest personal computer," Jobs said. Jobs showed both benchmarks and Photoshop tests that illustrate the new dual 2GHz PowerMac outperforming a dual 3GHz Xeon machine
Just released.

The new Apple desktops will also be capable of running 32-bit software--the kind found on desktops today--and 64-bit software, which is used by high-end workstations. 64-bit software can take advantage of more memory, which improves performance, but developers have to recompile their operating systems and applications for that to happen. Adobe said it would recompile its software to take advantage of the capability and release products with this feature at about the same time that the new Macs emerge. It is unclear when Apple will perform a similar task.

Unfortunatly, it is still a mac, and no matter how far advanced it is, will lack in software support. Perhaps they'll fix that problem, but I doubt it.

Then again, with that much power one should be able to emulate a PC to a decent degree. Interesting.
 
I use a mac...

You can find any software you need for the mac that you can find for the PC (excluding custom built buisness finance software and the like).

Unfortunately, the mac does lack when it comes to games. Game performance is okay, but not as well as PC (given the fact that mac games are usually pc titles ported over) and there are far less to choose from.
