    Well, they still offer the G5's in the U.S. Apple store. I havn't seen or heard of any annuncment that they are switching. But with it being the only G5 left, it's pretty hard to tell. I think they'll stay with it.

    Considering that Steve has said that the entire transition to Intel processors will be complete by the end of 2006, they're running out of time to squeeze in another G5 revision before an Intel switch. There isn't even a question here.

    I voted PPC as this is the dumbest poll I have seen and felt I needed to fit in.

    I think no one told you that Apple is switching its entire line to intel by the end of 2006.

    AMD, baby. AMD all the way.
    Where is the AMD option?

    What, I changed my mind. It's Nike.
    Apple and Nike aren't just doing iPod+Nike. No no.
    Mac+Nike.
    The new Mac Pros are going to be shaped like giant shoes.
    It will dance around the room while playing MC hammer can't touch this.
    So you have to keep running around the room to keep up with it.
    It will also keep track of your heart rate and how many calories you burned.
    This is going to be so revolutionary!
    Wasteland land HO!!!!! AHHHHHH.... Can't.... the tractor beams got me! NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Glub, glub, glub.....

    I think they'll stay PowerPC FOREVER.
    Not really.

    There isn't really a doubt that the next Power Mac upgrade will have it switch to the "Mac Pro" and it will have Intel processor(s).

    It was the end of 2007.

    Please. Maybe our next poll could be whether they'll revert to AppleTalk?
