    a comparison

    I guess it's the same philosophy as:
    24 hours in a day.....24 beers in a case.....

    what a terrible t-shirt.....ha ha ha..... :p

    Re: how so?

    not to be a pedantic feminist... but, heck, i am. perhaps we could refrain from the rhetoric of sexual assualt in our enthusiasm for the new processor? many of you male macheads seem to care for your machines nearly as much as you do your mothers/sisters/daughters, and i think you would agree that such language is innappropriate.

    just my 2 cents.

    Just observation. Why would there be a 10 day ship time now? These have been in the pipeline for a long time now. Also, the rebate on the displays ends on the 31st. And, historically, 10 days, means either new product already announced, or new product about to be announced.

    I agree with newmanium (although I wouldn't use such flaming techniques). All people on these boards should respect others' opinions. I also applaud Cleo for standing up for her beliefs (and we all know that rape in this society should not be lightly taken).


    And now for something RELATED to this thread:
    I doubt we will see the G5 until at least MW NY. It would be poor market planning to waste Apollo (unless Apollo is being developed for the iMacs). I personally expect to see 1Ghz systems (possibly duel processor) with 512Mb RAM, an 80GB-7200RPM HD, the newest nVida GeForce3 card, and a faster superdrive (maybe with another optical drive for direct CD copying). We might even see a faster ATA interface (ATA 133).

    Peace

    Peace thats what we need here and in the whole freakin world. Solets pack a bowl, toke it, and puff puff away our angers and frustrations. fock,for cryin outloud we are talkin about computers here,we arent talking about social skills,or miracles. We should all chill out and let the people say all the bullchit that they want to say,even if it pisses you off.No one knows jack**** about apple plans or ideas,this is a rumor site,rumor,not facts. But true if you are going to post a rumor,try to read first and see if it makes sense. Cuz fock, i still lookin for the band nerd i know you are out there, and where is your freakin 1ghz tibook? uh?

    Macmall

    Just got off the phone with Macmall.

    I want to order a DP 800, but since all these rumors abound, I have been waiting. A few days ago they were out of stock and now they have 49 units. Also, the sales person said they had no inidication of new PowerMac models coming out, she said maybe something at the next Expo (Tokyo).

    Is MacMall reliable? Or is this just a case of a sales person trying to sell now?

    What???

    I am sure you all know what the guy meant by "rape". He even had it in quotations! He meant it would strip it of all its glory and everyone would be like "power, the iMac was 'raped' from its power" C'mon, we dont need people saying that was not good to say. He didnt mean it in a bad way!

    OT (sorry :) )

    thank you to all of you who have demonstrated your humanity. mac_user, i'm sorry, but it is impossible (or at least indefensible) to use "rape" in a "good" way. a rapist strips a person of power, yes, but that is not a quality we should be glorifying. what the original poster (erm, sig-er) meant was that the new g5 would surpass the new imac in style and power. let's leave it at that.
    (that having been said... the presentation of the new g5's is going to have to be absolutely unthinkable in order to surpass that of the new imac... like it or not, that little white machine is industrial design at its best.)

    Actuall we have 90 800DP'Z

    Here is what we have left.
    961567 1 POWERMAC G4 800DP = 90

    961566 1 POWERMAC G4 867 = 712

    961565 1 POWERMAC G4 733 = 2597

    To be honest with you, we have heard that there might be new CPU's but no one really knows until Steve says so.

    Peace

    Everyone's too friggin' sensitive. Including me! Shut up! Hey, I see you laughing over there... what? What was that? YOU again! I told you to shut up!

    ...and so on and so forth...

    SOOOOO, in regards to the sexually-assaulted G4's, I think we will see one more generation of G4's before the G5's in July.

    Calm Down A Bit...

    I think it's about time we all calm down a bit... I think that if someone is offended with anything posted here, the poster should remove it. I hope that Mac_user will change his signature... And, most importantly, people should be able to stand up for what they believe in, so good on you cleo.

    Asuka's Rape

    Come on, Cleo.

    Perhaps Asuka was using "rape" in its non-sexual definition?

    That being said, do you think that Asuka likes to suck on a fag now and then? :)

    The G4 towers have been at 10 days est ship for 2 weeks now. I ordered one on 1/14(long story, but I had to order by 1/15 for my work to pay for it), and it has still not yet shipped. The apple store told me that the est. ship date was a "worse case scenario" and that mine should ship no later than mon 1/28. I'm crossing my fingers, toes, and any other extraneous appendages that it is speed-bumped.

    distibution

    The 733 is the most popular. It is the cheapest and sells more. Your average consumer doesn't spend $3500 on a CPU.
