Yes. I've done test lab sessions for Musician mags on this matter and  
the Intel Macs are a much better deal than the G5 macs - if you make  
sure you go for the dual core types. A dual G5 may be a little more  
powerful (and a lot more expensive) but it won't run all new Intel  
optimized software that is coming out. The only situation I think can  
justify buying a G5 based Mac today is if you really have to work  
right away with software that has still not been upgraded to support  
Intel Macs.

Usually apple boxes sound better with the built-in audio card. But  
you get a lot better sound, and recordings, with an audio interface  
that is designed for musicians.
