That is really the big question on all our minds? They say late 2003, I am not sure, but Apple could do something like this: Scenario 1: Come out with 970's in the last MWNY in Apple history, really making MW one of the biggest Apple events for a long time. Scenario 2: Come out with the chip in a special announcement in the October - Novermber area of 2003. Scenario 3: Come out with the chip in MWSF 2004. I personally hope they come out with the chip in MWNY 2003, but only Steve knows. Specs? I can only guess: Low end: dual 1.8ghz 100gb hard drive 256mb of memory CDRW Gigawire? Graphics? Nvidia Geforce5? Middle of the road: dual 2.0ghz 120gb hard drive 512mb of memory Superdrive II Gigawire? Graphics? Nvidia Geforce5? High End: quad 2.2ghz 160gb hard drive 1gb of memory Superdrive II Gigawire? Graphics? Nvidia Geforce5? I think these specs are beaing pretty reasonable, not sure of the waud though, but I think it is a possiblity. Also, with the ability to go with 8 processors, I think we might see some high-end servers coming out of the pipe-line from Apple within the next 2 years. What do you guys think?
