    the g5 is for sure going to get faster, and we all know that eventally it'll end up in powerbooks...but where does that leave the i machines?...using the pathetic g4 that moto can't even make in large quantities?? phh...they would be piddling around in 1.4 ghz when the g5 will be way bast 2ghz for all models...

    i think that in a year from now they should have everything be g5s...just keep the i machines at lower clockspeeds....1.8 or so for the i macs... 1.6 or so for ibooks...while the powermacs and powerbooks are 2ghz plus

    basically i'm saying apple should really push ahead to the future... and forget about the g4...

    since the IBM G3 will soon surpass the Moto G4's and even have AltiVec, I imagine that apple will probably put IBM G3's label G4 into their i line

    Actually G3/G4/G5 are Apple labels.

    When the IBM 780 varient with altivec comes out, Apple could by rights call it a G4 if they want to.

    Yes there will be some differences between that and what Apple currently calls G4's, but they shouldn't matter.
