You use two key phrases:  PowerMac and user-friendly.  I immediately think of Sequencher 3.0, recently rewritten for the PowerMac by GeneCodes, Inc., Ann Arbor, MI.  It is specially designed for sequencing projects.  I have v. 2.0, and run it on my IIfx.  I have spent only a minute or two reading the manual, and it does what I want.  It's not cheap, though.  I think it's $1,200 or so.  Gets high ratings from the mags, though.
