    I'm not sure if this is due to the fact that I spent all day yesterday covering the sadly uneventful non-release of the G5 revB's or that I had way too much pizza and beer, but I had a dream last night of the new updates of the G5, the funny thing is, I remember the specs and the pricing, I'm using the tech sheet that Apple has at their store, yes, that was in my dream, creepy, I know. :p

    Option 1 (same as current top of the line model) - $2,000
    Dual 2GHz PowerPC G5
    1GHz frontside bus/processor
    512K L2 cache/processor
    512MB DDR400 128-bit SDRAM
    Expandable to 8GB SDRAM
    160GB Serial ATA
    SuperDrive
    Three PCI-X Slots
    ATI Radeon 9600 Pro
    64MB DDR video memory
    56K internal modem

    Option 2 - $2600
    Dual 2.4GHz PowerPC G5
    1.2GHz frontside bus/processor
    512K L2 cache/processor
    768MB DDR400 128-bit SDRAM
    Expandable to 8GB SDRAM
    160GB Serial ATA
    SuperDrive
    Three PCI-X Slots
    ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
    128MB DDR video memory
    56K internal modem

    Option 3 - $3200
    Dual 3GHz PowerPC G5
    1.5GHz frontside bus/processor

    Superdrive
    Three PCI-X Slots
    ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
    256MB DDR video memory
    56K internal modem

    This is just a dream, no speculation here, and the dream didn't have a date on it so no release date on them sadly, maybe WWDC? ;)

    i doubt front side bus could be improved and it seems somewhat too optimistic to me...

    These threads shouldn't even be posted. (no offense)

    The specs that ordinary people give are useless and don't involve any concrete facts or dates.

    I'm sorry. Just kinda pissed that nearly 3 months of waiting has passed with no powermacs, and no information to go on... :mad:

    Last time I checked, I stated that this was a DREAM, no personal opinions, no research, no wishful thinking, no "I know this is the stats". I thought I made that clear in my first post but oh well. :confused:
