    I really don't think that this is real, but let's say it is for the moment.
    I did a Google search for "CTO POWERMAC G5 2.2" and turned up everything that is here:
    http://www.google.com/search?q="CTO...hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&safe=off&filter=0

    There are two sites that have the "new" G5s listed, ExperCom and CostCentral, each site lists this computer at around 4500 USD. Each site lists the computer as unavailable. Though I am unsure of what "CTO" means, removing it from the search didn't really do anything to garner more results. I think that Apple would be asking for it to ask 4500 USD for a 200mhz speed bump. That's 1500 USD for a 10% speed bump, which will result in very little visible speed enhancement. I think that this has to be some sort of mistake, because Apple would simply be stupid to make such a poor Rev. B G5.

    Here are the links to the two product pages:

    My thought is... does any Apple computer currently cost 4500 USD? Maybe with more options added to it. (mind you they are close to that in CDN$$$. Why would they even list one at 4500 USD?

    Faux pas

    If you RETAIL PowerMacs, and you are NOT

    MacMall
    MacZone
    Other World Computing
    How would you attract attention to your site,
    if you were unable to list the real thing with real prices?

    We just gave those two LINKS some free advertisement,
    and
    they THANK us for it.
    :D
