The specs are awsome....still not sure about the case; not sure I like the design, and having only 1 x 5.25" bay is insane.

Oh, the first pics I saw from someones camera from WWDC looked terrible - this thing is awesome. Can't wait to order one....:D

The speed will be amazing!

Yeeeeeaaaaah, baby!!!

i wish they had released a new cube though, but o.k., can't have everything...

I hope that apple stays ahead of the game this time and does not fall behind like with the G4...

GO Apple GO!!!

Looks alright I suppose but what's with all the holes in the front? speed holes? I hated those on the MDD. I do like the overall brushed steel/aluminum design.

I LOVE that brushed aluminum look. I can picture these in many recording studios, running ProTools and the like with ease. heh..

ugly PC lookin' case, but that's ok when you take into account that it is faster than any PC. ;):D

They are only lacking in case and in price. I can only get the 'faster' model (1.8) and I really wanted dual processors. Blah..... :(

Base unit priced to high, $1999.00 low end video card 5200fx( slight step up from mx) memory 256 ram? come on. The styling is unique but not awe inspiring. 9 fans is 9 motors to go wrong, and be powered. the 970 is fantastic, but the powermac pricing sucks. I have decided to upgrade to a 1.4 single or dual 1.25. way overpriced for the 1.6 gig machine.

Save up scem0, they don't ship until August (probably September) you should be able to make some extra cash by then right?
