When Apple first announced the Intel-based Mac’s, they said they would start shipping at the beginning of '06. Should I wait a bit longer for them or should I get me one of 'em G4/G5’s now?
You should absolutely wait.
Good things come to those who wait.
Here’s the latest I’ve heard. The first Mac to get an Intel chip is going to be the next version of the Mini, but it’s going to be geared more towards home entertainment, kinda like the latest Imac with Front Row. Look for it at the next MacWorld in January.
