    The new Power Macs at MWNY better include:

    -800-1000MHz G4 (MPC7460)
    -NV20 graphics
    -PC2100 SDRAM (266MHz DDR)
    -Sound Blaster Live! Mac
    -Faster Super Drives
    -ATA/100 RAID
    -USB 2.0 and 800 Mbps FireWire
    -A new enclosure
    -6 PCI slots

    I will settle for an 800MHz MPC7450, but faster is always better. :)

    NOTES-
    The MPC7560 is a 0.15-micron version of the V'GER G4 (MPC7540), which will consume less power and may find its way into laptops. :D
    PC2100 SDRAM consumes less power than normal PC133 SDRAM and offers twice the bandwidth: 2.1GBps! Also great for laptops. :D

    I quite like the enclosure...perhaps a little bit different style, but the sliding door style really makes it easy to upgrade. I swear I love that.

    1) Raid card
    2) Hoopy video card
    3) Multi-processor G4 accellerator
    4) MPEG video compression card
    5) Soundblaster (when it comes out)
    6) Second Giga Ethernet so it can act as a NAT...

    There you go! Someof the Apple reps actually had a third party slot chassis running multiple cards. Can you say Beowulf Cluster? :D
