The machine, strung together from 1,100 dual-processor Power Mac G5s, is the first supercomputer made from Macs.

I disagree.

I believe apple claimed the first G4 a 'Supercomputer'


:rolleyes:


I doubt that is really the 'top 500' list.

I'm pretty sure the U.S government has some top computers...

$300 for a toliet cover... Ssuuurreee.

:p

But consider that the government uses listed supercomputers for their computing.
