I was looking at MacMall.com today, and I noticed that their inventory of PowerMacs has dropped significantly over the past couple of days. This adds credibility to the rumor of the PowerMacs being EOLed, but it also adds questions concerning the stories reported on C|Net and ThinkSecret. After checking MacMall.com, I am certain that inventories of the PowerMac are not as great as they have been rumored to be. So, I'm am very confused by the rumors on C|Net and ThinkSecret, which stated the only reason for not releasing PowerMacs during MWNY was excess. So, I've got a theory of my own. With Intel releasing faster chips in August, Apple will want to deliver its own punch in the same time frame. And to do this, they are going to use AMD's marketing strategy. According to RailHeadDesign.com, the PowerMacs will be single 1GHz, dual 1.2GHz, and dual 1.4GHz. Now, because of the "dual factor", Apple can play the name game. The dual 1.2GHz could become the PowerMac 2400, and the dual 1.4GHz could become the PowerMac 2800. This would effectively take a stab at the back of Intel, which will be releasing processors at 2.6GHz and 2.8GHz.
