    I received an email from Apple saying I get 12 free copies to Macworld. When I went to the website to claim them, it makes you choose your most recent Apple
    purchase. Check out the image!

    To verify that it's not just a mistake, does that list include "Power Mac G5" or just "G5" as well?

    It would be, those buttons look very un-Apple.

    i have a feeling it is just someone that wrote the page wanting to create speculation.

    although, i don't doubt that apple has an iMac G5 in the works.

    If a G5 iMac was due out soon, it certainly would have debuted at the expo.

    hmm

    I think they try to take the power from rumour sites by trying to teach us that apple tech is unpredictable, they really hate the sales slumps leading up to big mac events. They won't beat us but they can only do their best with this relatively cost free method of suprise release dates.
    I think this tactic could have been what those expo arguments were about, Apple not attending and threatening to pull out if they didn't get their way.

    Good stuff soon me thinks.

    pah!

    Take a look at all the options.

    Do you see Server G5 or Xserve G5? -- This is an announced product but it is not there.

    Hence I wouldn't hold my breath -- this is either a mistake or wishful thinking

    I thought the same thing. But, it really surprised me to see that as an option.

    Re: pah!

    This is a good point, looking again I would err on a story that someone said "we have to distinguish between the G4 and the G5 on the drop down menu" so the windoze type bod goes and makes an extra listing for a G5 imac not realising the subtlety of knowing what a G4 is as opposed to a G4 imac.

    Possibly done intentionally but probably just a typo.

    Obviously, Apple is going to replace all the G4s with G5s, and now that the 5's are 90nm, squeezing one into the iMac won't be a problem. It will definitely be a sweet consumer machine.

    Still hoping for a G5 cube also.

    What I would like to know is...

    How the heck did you get 12 free copies of Macworld?

    I think it only applies to new purchases of imacs, emacs, powerbooks, powermacs, ibooks, etc...

    If they debuted everything at the expo, which was on the 1st few days of the 1st month of the year, what would be left for the rest of the year ? What a boring rest of the year it would be with only speed increases and a surprise or two here and there. Plus, with the relatively recent introduction of the 20" iMac, I don't think we will see G5 iMacs in a new form or probably not even in the same form. I think the iMac would get the G5 at 1.6 GHz and 1.8 GHz once the G5 hits 3 GHz in the summer. That way there would be a big gap in speed between the iMacs and Power Macs. Currently the iMac tops at 1.25 GHz, so expect an upgrade to 1.33 GHz in a month or two.
