The new G5 is missing many features I want, such as: PCI-Express, DDR2, 533mhz ram, DL superdrive. The Dell's seem to have all this new technology in most of their product line already. To me it makes the G5's seem already "outdated". I want this machine to last. Is it worth waiting for apple to implement this, or should I just wait untill the next revision? Do you think the G5's will get all this the next time the're updated? Macrumors buyers guide states that the current G5 is in the middle of its product cycle. If I were to order one now, I think I would get it in about say 3 months time? By then apple have upgraded the G5 line anyway. BTW, i'm writing all this on a 450mhz g3 iMac I've been using for the last four years, just to give you my idea of an expected G5 lifespan.
