I wonder what the deal is with the changed power supply cord?
3 USB ports on the back, now we are getting somewhere.
nice to see it in real pictures.
Oh baby! That is smoking! I wonder how hot the prosessers would get with out that mamoth fan?
That's what I'm wondering too. I don't see any reason for them to change it, and it will only lead to problems if something happens to your Apple cord and you need to replace it.
The power connector looks like an IEC60-320 type C20. The old power connector for the previous PowerMac G5s was either a C14 or C16. The MDD PowerMac G4s have a type C14 on them.
So while Apple is using a international standard connector type, it might not be available at every corner shop.
I'm glad Apple didn't invent a whole new cord you can only get from them... but it WAS very useful to have ALL computer stuff share the same easily-obtained power cords.
(I don't suppose that's simply a non-US version, and the US version will have the usual cord?)
Or does the thing use so much power it needs a special cord like a clothes dryer?
Also, a special cord would've cost more money.
It looked like a US power cord in the picture.
It can use a fair bit of power, so that's probably it.
