Thinking of the new Intel iMac--but Photoshop CS2 now will run only with Rosetta--should I wait for a new CS2?
Will Rosetta slow it up too much even with the new processor?

Based on tests on my Developer Transition Kit I would guess that Photoshop would be faster on the Intel iMac than on the iMac G5 - in most cases.
The latest test seed included a version of Rosetta that supported AltiVec though, and that actually made Photoshop a lot slower when using filters that could take advantage of AltiVec. I don't know if it has been fixed or if you can turn off AltiVec support.
