Are we still on the 1st gen Mac desktops?

I've been out of the loop. Someone wanted to buy my dual 2.0 g5 for $1500 so he can use it in the post production world. Is the mac desktop core duo still 1st generation? If so is it rock solid? I use logic and motu stuff. I have a uad card. I realize I have to get new cards for my new comps because it only accepts PCI Express. I just don't want to jump into anyting that is buggy.

Thanks

I'm loving my Mac Pro 2.66. Running DP 5.11 and OSX 10.4.8. Quiet, solid and stable.

The Mac Pro 2.66 is INSANE! My machine is running PT LE 7.1.1 on OS 10.4.7 - many plugs are now available for the Intel platform...

When I first opened it up to install more ram (6 gb total) and sata drives - highly recommended over fw - I was amazed at the efficient and clean design of this machine. Also, the beauty of owning this machine is you'll be to ugrade to more powerful processors in the futere if you choose to...

it doesn't have the problems one would expect from a 1st gen machine - absolutely solid!

and it's whisper quiet...
