They probably won't advertise the G4 ever again, but they can't advertise the G5 because they have no extra supply, they have hard enough time shipping 2.5s to their existing customer base, and a lot of xServes (thousands) are getting sent to Massive Cluster projects like VT and Colsa.

When Apple has something to advertise (not look look, our Powerbook and iBook are nearly the same speed, and our $800 eMacs is being overclocked to 1.6, faster than our fastest G4 laptop) and not "pay now, get much much much later", then they will advertise again. :(

That really is the essence of it all.

Apple still have a lot of production problems that can only be fixed gradually, any forced acceleration in production seems to lead to quality problems.

So I agree, advertising is probably better spent in other ways, like quality control.
