Nothing against getting a mac of course, but I just wanted to let you 
know that the machine you have is plenty capable 16 tracks+.  I run an 
AMD 2400+ with a single 80GB PATA hard drive and record 11-16 tracks at 
a time, usually for up to an hour or more in one shot.  I use 2 M-Audio 
Delta 1010LT's together to get 16 analog inputs, which works quite well 
for me.
