    These are not from me. They are from Spymac. I know, they are silly specs and considering the source, most likely amount to nothing more than a metric sh!tload. But I love G5 rumors and this one's entertaining. Especially the last thing on the list. I added the drumroll for suspense.

    "OK, anxious suckers._ Here is what you all have been waiting for._ I normally wouldn't do this, but I had a little Franzia finest boxed American wine and am up for anything._ I work for Apple._ I do hardware design._ MWNY:
    G5 Power Mac
    Newish enclosure, same basic shape but different look.
    Motorola G5 Processor, 0.13µ process, very fast.
    This is the G5 you have hear about before, friends.
    DDR 266 (and if you pray real hard, 333, maybe), registered
    4 DIMM slots, 2GB max, 8GB theoretical max
    8x AGP
    FireWire 2
    Gigabit ethernet
    Airport, dual channel, 108Mb, ready
    Bluetooth
    ATA133, dual channel
    66MHz 64bit PCI
    A really fast graphics chip.
    Superdrive
    (and Drumroll Please............................................)
    Floppy"

    what rubbish, especially the floppy, considering even Intel has asked PC makers to wind them down..

    The last line blows any itty-bitty bit of credibility it had right out of the water...

    Even my friends who do have floppy drives don't use them any more!

    Let me guess, this is an MPX motherboard and not RapidIO.

    You sure this isn't the new Amiga we've been waiting years for?

    The old specs on the Amiga pre-order page are getting a little old.

    Why WHy!

    I hate G5 rumors especially bad ones! like this.

    Wish there was a G5 bot that would destroy anyone that posted the sequence of letters that started with a G and then a 5!

    Floopy!>? Geez , you would think that the person creating this rumor would realize that adding the floopy would render this Rumor stupid!

    Oh, maybe thats the joke.

    Though I hardly see the humor....

    I thought it was believable until I saw that "floppy" b.s....

    why the hell would Apple waste space in a tower for a floppy?!

    Re: G5 Specs Released...

    Someone got some weird info. The DDR spec seems logical(not the 333, but 266) . But, y would Apple have the newest AGP without putting PCI-X on there also? Also, whats with the floppy? Apple stoped putting floppies in a long time ago. And also, wheres the clock speed? Theres not even a bus speed to look at. All we have to look at is that its on the .13 micron process and it is "very fast".

    I'm sorry, but those specs dont seem like they'd fit.
    Also, if you read the post ( i ran out of room, so I deleated the quote), it says that the guy had some expensive wine to drink, so thats why he is telling us this G5 info. So this is rele just drunken babel, but, ur right, it is quite comical, almost stupid comical.

    For the most part, if you're going to use the term, "This came from SpyMac" and you aren't posting it JUST to point out how lame it is.. you can pretty much save the effort. Grab a copy of Mario Teaches Typing if you are just doing it for typing practice, but seriously... The closest SpyMac has come to being right was that few days when they posted nothing because someone was on vacation.

    Yeah, so does everyone else..... :rolleyes:

    Why does every fool and his dog use that exact same line to try and add some authenticity to their drivel? Like saying "i work for apple" is going to make everyone believe them...... Oh well, i guess there are fools out there who might. Floppies are returning..... :rolleyes: :p What good does a 1.4MB disk do you nowadays? A blank cd is cheaper, and you get 700MB. Hey, whilst we're at it, let's go back to real floppy disks. You know, the 5 1/4" one's where you had to shut the door on the drive first, and the disks were actually floppy? :D :D

    Don't blame the dog for this level of sloppy drivel, I'm quite sure the dog's attempt would be a lot more sensible.

    At least the dog is smart enough to stay away from Franzia.

    Saying that there is going to be a floppy falsifies this rumor! Why would apple EVER GO BACK?! Its like saying that the new G5 will come complete with 2 serial ports and a parallel port! :eek:

    Spymac has a nice looking site that some people think translates into credibilty
    like a beautiful woman. sadly it doesnt unless its my girlfriend.

    SpyMac isnt my grilfriend!
    There will be no G5 with a Floppy, christ what an oxymoron!

    Relax...

    Hey, guys, I know this thing is obsurd. I didn't post it because I think it's real. I thought it was funny. The guy says in a following post that research has told Apple that the consumers want the floppy back. Personally, I wouldn't p!ss on a floppy if it was on fire but that's just me. Point is, it's clearly rubbish but I was in the mood for a G5 rumor and this hit the spot. Sorry everyone gets so upset.
