There was something odd about the recent Powermac speedbump. One model, strangely, was left out of the updates but not cut from the lineup. The low-end Powermac is now slower than the mid-range iMac and it costs the same with out the benefit of a lovely 17" screen at no added cost. They could have at least made it a 2.0GHz machine and changed the video and standard ram a la the other Powermacs. This machine wasn't dropped, but it will be soon, perhaps around WWDC. I predict that we will see a paper release of the Powermac dual core G5's at WWDC with shipping dates of very late 2005 or early 2006. Apple will drop the 1.8GHz single from the lineup around WWDC and move the 2.0, 2.3 and the 2.7GHz down a notch leaving a whole at the top of the lineup filled by the newly announced dual core G5. My theory will be proven in just shy of a month and I can't wait.
