I know that the new eMac went to SDD 8x and the new PM G5's. I even said in a thread here that the iMac needs that upgrade also. Though I did some thinking and research. Does the 8x SDD really make a difference? What I mean by that is the media for DVD-R, the best price is for the 4x disks right now. Under a $1 each in 25 to 50 quantities and this is for the 4x disks. The only 8x media I have seen is for the Apple at $2 each. Now that dual layer drives are coming available, will the 8x DVD-R be an also ran?
