Yes, the title is intentionally insulting/annoying. I really don't care what processor you like to use, but I have seen a few threads about the new PowerMacs, like this one: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=1836397#post1836397 That have people saying the PowerMacs are way to expensive. So, I thought maybe a little insult would get people going. I would like to challenge anyone out there to match this system (attached) 2.5GHz Quad-core PowerPC G5 4GB 533 DDR2 ECC SDRAM- 4x1GB 250GB Serial ATA - 7200rpm NVIDIA GeForce 6600 256MB SDRAM 16x SuperDrive DL (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) Apple Keyboard & Mighty Mouse - U.S English Mac OS X - U.S. English Accessory kit AppleCare Protection Plan for Power Mac (w/ or w/o Display) Now, a couple of systems I have configured on thinkmate and others, do not automatically include USB, firewire, network cards, etc. So any configured system must also have the basics, as specified on http://www.apple.com/powermac/specs.html USB 2.0, Firewire 400 & 800, dual port Gigabit Ethernet, etc. Come on, all you, Apple is sooooo expensive folks now is your chance to prove me wrong. Heck I even bought the RAM at Apple that should give you a head start!
