    I don't want to wait anymore. I'm pulling the trigger this afternoon. I can wait another 3 - 6 months for the upgrades to come, or I could enjoy it next week.

    I'll let you know how it goes.

    I dont blame you, waiting on apple to increase performance is like waiting for icebergs to melt in the Artic. The dual G5s are very solid performers. I wish i could say that about everything else apple makes other then the pods. Congrats and you will love it. You know what Apple will do now that you have ordered dont you:D

    I have heard the chriping noise and I like it. It's almost soothing... It makes your G5 sound like it's doing some kick ass computing.:D
