    Specs on Apple's 3rd generation G4 machines:

    Boards 33% smaller than those on modern G4.
    CPU card with 1MB of buffer SRAM (not L3 cache) to improve RAM throughput and dual channel DDR memory controller
    Intigrated PCI/peripheral/firewire/ethernet controller on motherboard (Pangea 2)
    SerialATA
    4 PCI slots and an AGP 8X slot (fully powered)
    4-6 DIMM slots (RAM must be installed in pairs to take advantage of dual channel bus)

    I presume this is because of the merging of all the chipsets. Hinting of new enclosure?

    Mmmmmmmm.............That'll help with the games.

    So I'm right, see above.

    Is this ATA/100?

    Um....ok. I think we already have 4 pci slots and I'd love to see the card that needs an 8x bus. Planning for the future I'd guess.

    o. Fast memory, more memory. With these extra slots can you add more than a gig of ram and actually allocate it to the finder?
