    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:

    See also: the AtomChip®SG220-2, the first computer to feature the 6.8GHz AtomChip® Quantum® II processor with 256MB on-board memory and 1TB Quantum-Optical non-volatile RAM.
