    Genesi, a PowerPC-based computer manufacturer, has announced that they'll be making systems with the 970MP (dual core G5) processor. OSNews has some coverage.

    It'll probably run OS X via Mac-on-Linux, but I'm pretty sure that this would be a breach of licence. I think it comes with Linux and MorphOS (their current systems come with these).

    Along with the news that the Freescale dual core e600 will be delayed til the second half of 2006. :(

    And likely expect the new full e600-core G4 to face a similar delay, so it looks like the 7448 bridge chip may be the last G4 Powerbook (if even that) -- and the delay once again has Jobs pissed as they have to do a last minute update to the 7448 while probably killing the new chipset. :rolleyes:
