    What's difference between both Powermac and think of buy one of them. I'm lending toward the dual since it cost less than another to save some moola for next or rev. b macintel pb.

    There isn't a single 2.0GHz G5, unless you mean the iMac, but that's different than a PowerMac. I wish there was, but they didn't update the single 1.8, just dropped it. You could always buy a refurbished one for a little cheaper. Or wait to see what they do with the dual cores, but that could be months from now.

    Ahh I see...I originally assumed that Apple do offers single 2 and dual 2 based on the specification information in Shop section:

    Dual 2.0 PM

    2.0 PM

    Got to read down a bit...

    Number of Installed Processors: 2

    Then you'll see that the second one is a dual 2.0 PowerMac ;)

    Apple tries to get away from the naming confusion, but it still creeps in.
