    apple is known for having THE best negotiators in the business.

    when they were buying the G5 from us, I was astonished at what we were giving them, in cash and prizes.

    No, Apple doesn't pay those prices. What you showed were the desktop versions, Apple uses the more expensive, low power mobile versions of these chips. The prices that you show match the latest Intel price list that I could find (effective December 24th, 2006) when buying in trays of 1000. Google "Intel price list".

    johnee - you can't come on this board and say you're an IBM engineer who was involved w/ the PPC 970 and then leave it at that! What's the scoop! I remember all the speculation in '01-'02-'03 about the Motorola G5, and how news of the 970 surfaced and it was seen as Apple's savior... what's the story, in 10,000 words or more?

    I'm sure they're prancing around the IBM factory right now with G5 PowerBooks.
