    Yeah, at WWDC they had a photo of it next to the XtroVERT , and the PowerMac appeared to be slightly taller.

    Since the handles are not removable, it looks to me like the new PowerMac can't be rack-mounted in a standard 19" rack.

    Yep-- from the Apple page:

    Height: 20.1 inches (51.1 cm)
    Width: 8.1 inches (20.6 cm)
    Depth: 18.7 inches (47.5 cm)
    Weight: 39.2 pounds (17.8 kg)

    I suppose you could cut off the handles... :eek: :eek: :eek: (I can't believe I said that!)

    Guess they need to get that G5 Xserve out soon!

    back in NYC!
    That whole album of photos is good.

    Argh, I'm sick of looking at the G5 though - I have to look at it for the next couple of years :eek:. I'm gunna try to hide it under my desk the best that I can.

    i definately think they could have made it shorter..
    the fact that it is over 19" is just so it wont fit in a 19" rack
    and companies will have to but Xserves

    Trust me I'm no english major (in fact I did poorly in HS english), but that's an easy one. I'll give some examples:

    She went to the store, then she went to the bank, then she went home.

    Then is kind of like 'next'.

    Than is a comparison:

    That Mac is faster than that PC.

    After staring at the G5, I can't help myself thinking, "If they were forced to make it that tall, why couldn't they make it a little taller so they could fit another optical drive?"

    Not that I need an optical drive, I just get annoyed when I hear everyone complain about it. :)
