    hrm. G5 ready? Does that mean the new case design will be carried over to the G5s or will it be G5 only? 4GB *gasp!* of ram (SDRAM)

    BTW, look at the bottom picture on the .jpg. looks like the board was made in 2001 :wtf:

    they would only shut me down if i didn't respond to an apple legal request... and it would only be a temporary suspension from my host per apple legal's request.

    Since my comp sale didn't go through and I'm still on my Mac this is good news to me. All I would need is a G4 1.4GHz w/ DDR + fast mobo to convince me to stay all Apple hardware. AGP x8 would be good too. PCs would still whoop it but at least it'd be more comparable.

    A GF4Ti 4600 or Radeon 9700 wouldn't hurt either...

    i doubt AGP8x would make any difference with current video cards.

    Yeah I know but they should include it to at least look current or do so next time. The 9700 is a x8 AGP card though. Doubt the current CPUs could saturate x8 anyways.

    :rolleyes: The current G4 enclosure looks mighty pretty compared to the last one. Those pages don't say anything about hardware.
