    the g3 is actually faster than the g4 in raw processing in several instances. of course if the app is altivec enabled the g4 will be faster...

    They could just put fans back in the iMac. Thats the only thing I like about my 333 iMac, the fan. It almost makes the noise from the crummy CD drive seem less annoying :p. My 350 iMac is too damn quiet.

    I don't see what the big deal is, harddrives are alot noisier than fans anyhow.

    If your gonna sacrifice possible speed to make a computer half-assedly less noisy, then its a waste of time.
