    What revision are the refurbished iMac G5s on apple.com? Are they the ones with jet engaines built in like other people have said? $850 for a 17" sounds like a great deal to me. Im about to get rid of this windows computer finally, and plan to either buy my own mac, or save it for my Kawasaki ZX-6R downpayment. Which one would you choose?

    It is Rev B.
    Rev A has an nVdia video card with 64MB and Rev B has an ATI card with 128MB

    Ok, but is that the ones with the really noisy fans?

    IMHO both are very quiet.

    If you can swing the difference, I'd go for the newest Rev C iMac G5

    With education pricing $1199 is a great price for the upgrades you get over the Rev B.

    THe BIG clue to a Rev A would be 1.8 GHz processor.

    i would like to get one of the new ones if i had the money. Im only getting 800 for my windows computer, and the imac G5 is 850 refurbed. If i had 1200 id get a 14" ibook, but the imac will be nice. Any one want to trade a Imac G5 for a 14" ibook?
