    I wanted to buy a new rev. B mid model.
    I expected it to be at least 2.2 GHZ (2.0 2.2 2.4).
    I was sure if it was not 2.0 GHZ it would be a real rev. B.
    Now the mid model is not clearly a rev. B.
    Does anyone know what has changed?
    Is the 2.0 GHZ 90nm or just the 2.5GHZ?
    Is the power supply issue fixed?
    Is the freezing problem fixed?
    Is the Case of the 2.0 changed/fixed?

    Anyone knows some answers?
    I don't need more speed than 2.0 GHZ dual, but I do not want to have any problems if i spend 2000 to 3500 €/$

    (by the way: I am disapointed that the new models do not have space for 3 or 4 harddrives and I am disapointed that the new models do not have PCI-Express)

    I could be wrong, but I think all of the models went with the 90nm processor. I would think that all of those problems have been fixed, too. They are good machines, despite the fact that they took a year to come out.

    Best wishes,

    1. Only the 2.5GHz is 90nm.
    2. yes
    3. yes
    4. The case is the same on the 2.0 but the 2.5 of course features liquid cooling.
