Advise needed: iMac Intel vs. iMac PPC

My current PPC iMac failed on me and Apple is going to replace t with a new unit. They are offering me a choice between new Intel based model and the current PPC one and I am very confused. On one hand Intel is way faster, on the other I will loose all my applications (won't I?)

I am using PS and Nikon Capture. Do you know if they are going to run under the Rosetta shell? If they will, how fast are they going to be? Shells are generaly not good.

Anyway, if anybody switched or is using the new iMacs I would appreciate some help. I need to call them back today.

Regards,
KG
