    Thank goodness the model names are not completely up to the marketing department. Otherwise, we'd end up with Super PowerMac Turbo 3000. :D

    The word powermac is bad enough. Back in the mid 90's, power used to be on everything. Power2-4, PowerPC, Powermac, Powerbook, "The Power to be Your Best," the Apple PowerCD, the Powerpuff Girls ;).

    Personally, I think SuperMegaUltraGigaMac sounds better :D
