    Hi all, long time lurker, first time poster. I'm planning to purchase the refurbished dual 2ghz Power Mac currently listed on the Apple Store's "Special Deals" page, but can't determine if the model they're offering is a Revision A or B. The only difference, I believe, would be the inclusion of the 970fx in the B, which I'd like to make sure I get, if possible. If any of you know who I can contact at Apple to find out for sure, or if you see something in their listing that I'm not, please help.

    Thanks!

    If you can find a Rev B 2.0 PowerMac, Apple certified for $1649 GRAB IT!

    Model # is VPN-M9455LL/A

    {Not sure why the model number ends with an A but this IS the Rev B!}

    Otherwise you can still find them new in the box at many authorized resellers for around $1899.

    If you are a strong negotiator, you might be able to talk the resellers down to around $1749.

    Apple certified refurbs are generally well tested and trouble free.

    Hardware Overview:

    Machine Name: Power Mac G5

    Yes, but how do I tell if it's a 'B' rather than an 'A?'

    Wait, I think I've got it!

    It lists the original price as $2499. That would make it the middle of the ackp model upon release, which would make this dualie a Rev. B! Right?

    Let me know if you agree and I'll place my order right now. :p
