    Users discovered the Titanium Powerbook had a lot of 'silver-painted plastic'?

    Largest? No....

    The author obviously has not done his research. What about the Quadra 900/950... that may be comparable in size (and/or weight.) Also, the Apple Network Server 500/700 was much larger and weighed 64lbs.

    The new G5 is heavy. Just look at those heat sinks. Anyone seen the new Macworld mag, the G5 is getting it's a** handed to it. I dont see where they got the world's fastest PC from.

    They're claiming world's fastest desktop which may or may not be true, because at the time the 64bit PCs weren't shipping in volume. Now workstations are another matter, which is what a dual Xeon is classified as... Athlon64s, I don't know.

    Did Macworld run the tests with Panther installed? Hmm. I don't doubt the G5 isn't as fast as Apple claimed, but it's still pretty damn fast.
