    Let's say that sometime in the future, Apple releases a quad-CPU Mac (whether multiple cores are part of the quad CPU setup is irrelevant). Do you think Apple will revive the Quadra name for these Macs?

    The Quadra series had some fine models, no doubt. But let's just leave that uneven and very beige history on the shelf and move forward.

    Anyone have a better idea for what name to assign to the first quad-CPU Mac?

    I sincerely hope not! All of those code-names bring back a hint of the beige type computers that Apple was using in the early 90's. Someone in the marketing section of Apple will give it a cool name like -G5 squared or the like. The old names have died a horrible death.

    FourPlay (A gaming specific apple giving 600fps on Doom 3 but still some MacRumors readers complain wanting more)
    Quadwrangle
    4pple
    Quinse
    10G (4x2.5) aka "the heater"
