There has been plenty of talk that the newest and fastest macs are overclocked with moto's 7455 chip. After giving it lots of thought, the idea of Apple releasing an overclocked system is rediculous. Here's a few reasons why. 1. Apple is and has been a very conservative company for as long as I can remember. They don't release a product unless its ready and passed all of their stingent tests. That causes us to wait slightly longer for it but its worth getting a product that is reliable and waiting longer then desired rather than getting an unstable product thats rushed. 2. Has anyone ever heard of a computer company releasing an overclocked system? I sure haven't. Would releasing an overclocked system be a warranty nightmare. I'd make sure I pick up some Apple Care for when the system overheats even with all those vents. 3. Has Apple announced that the top of the line mac is overclocked? I guess must have missed that in the specs. 4. Now how much are you exactly paying for this "overclocked system". Well if you take the faster dual 1 GHz machine and add apples expensive options to upgrade the middle machine to 512 MB DIMM of DDR and a 120GB hard drive, that leaves you with $500 to spend on the power that the top of the line machine gives you. So you get an extra 500 MHz and 1 MB DDR L3. It seems to me that paying $500 for an overclocked and unstabble system is a little silly. There was less then a $500 difference between the previous 933 and the old Dual 1 GHz when they both had the same amount of ram and hard drive space. So you were getting a second G4 chip or a total of an extra 1067MHz. Now to me that was reasonable. 5. Why do you think we have to wait so long for the new 1.25 GHz PowerMacs. That becuase they are putting in the 7470 chip inside. A chip that can read DDR ram much more efficiently than the slower duals. Apple wants to make sure they have enough of them in stock before they ship them out to the stores. That exlplains why you pay so much extra for just 500 MHz. I know I'd shell it out if I knew I had a chip that would actually do something productive with all that DDR ram we now have.
