My eMac which is limited to Leopard is really showing signs of age and I will be needing to retire it before long. My problem is that I have far too many PPC applications (Quark 8, CS 3 everything, etc) which would be cost prohibited and in the Adobe family impossible to upgrade to current boxed versions. I think, but tell me if I am wrong, that Snow Leopard is the highest OS which will still offer Rosetta, and that would allow me to still take advantage of my existing software.

My question is: What machine version, (iMac or portable) even if it had to dual boot, would both give me the ability to use Rosetta for the old apps and offer the most improved speed and functionality for the future?
