This may have been answered, but what is the designation for the new Powermacs? So far we have had Blue & White, Graphite and Quicksilver. So what is this one called?

I looked around at Apple.com. Apple's support area refers to it as "Mirrored Drive Doors" Not quite as catchy as Quicksilver.

Just think, a Mac with the first built-in vanity mirror.

Too bad they forgot the light.

The prototype board design name for the new Mirror macs was called Adrnaline.

So I like either Mirrored Adrenaline or Adrenaline Mirrored.

Or I guess just Adrenaline would work.

i think apple refers to it as the " dual optical"...

though i think "stopgap" is more appropriate.:D

"Ohmygodthatssohorridlooking"

"Welliguessitsnottoobadafterall"

"Thebestpowermacdesignever"

This is the first PowerMac codename that changes over time. :rolleyes:

If you haven't seen this computer in person or haven't spent any time with it you should not be commenting on the appearance. I personally feel this is the best looking tower they have ever made. I don't not feel it's a stop gap maybe only in the DDR aspect wich has been blown way out of proportion. We will have to live with this case and system for 6months to a year. It is one of the best cases they have ever made. I can back this up because I have one.

Hmmmm. In my humble opinion i think the towers from before these (quicksilver) are better looking.

And how the hell did u land a new PM!!!????

there wasa big discussion about this over at MacNN's forums.
the over all consensus there is this:
Case Style: Mirrored Drive Doors
System Name: Adrenaline

Apple refers to this computer as the "Mirrored Drive Doors" on one section of their site.
If you go to the two PDF spec sheets for the new PowerMac and you go to the document properties in Acrobat it is listed as "Adrenaline Specs". I am listing it as the "Adrenaline" on my company's web site.

Adrenaline is an ok name, but "Mirrored Drive Doors" is just plain dumb, tacky, and whatever else. Just call it Quicksilver II or "Son of Quicksilver". Its better than what Apple came up with.
It is really a pointless discussion now anyway, because the way I see it come Jan/July of next year this computer will be referred to as "The Macintosh formerly know and G4" anyway.

I ordered it Tuesday first thing. They are also available for purchase at most local apple stores I know mine had 4 2xGhz models and 3 2x867 models when I last checked.
