    I am on the market for the PowerMac regardless of intel thing. And I am thinking about getting Dual 1.8Ghz (rev B) at a good price. But I can get dual 2.0Ghz (rev C) at cheaper price without apple care

    Dual 1.8Ghz
    256MB RAM
    80GB HDD
    64MB VRAM
    Apple Care
    $1799.00(36month interest free from compusa :p )

    Dual 2.0Ghz
    512MB
    160GB
    128MB VRAM
    NO Apple Care
    $1799(with edu discount)-$100(edu rebate)=$1699(Apple store)

    I plan to do lots of sceientific computing with it (probably parallel computing to take advantage of both processors). So VRAM is not a big problem.

    Thanks in advance

    I agree with that. You can always get the Applecare later... if you want it. But I never buy applecare on desktops, and have never needed it. Laptops are another story.
