Who knew it would be the G4 to break the 3GHz barrier :p

well even if it were true, you sort of lose you whole "portability" aspect of the powerbook. By that I mean, take those water cooled fans away and you'll have a melted 17" hunk of aluminum in your lap!!!

Good point, Jobs kept saying that the G5 would be the one to break the fabled 3GHz barrier. If he only knew... :p :)

It's a hoax, as the owner of the website himself admits:

I’m sorry, this is just a stupid joke! I only played a little bit with parts of my colleague’s current XPC mod. The 5,86 GHz is just a random number.

Yes it is a hoax, but an enjoyable one! :)
I gotta get me one of those laptops! :)
