Cool, now your starting to talk sense. A dual CPU iMac is never gonna happen, unless the PM's get quad CPU's.Originally posted by thanetman
Junk? You've hurt my feelings now... I thought this was the forum for hardware discussion and speculation?
I'm sorry if I've offended you
P.S Nice website edesign
D/P's in an iMac are not a reality I accept.
However, a 40 gig iPod would be most welcome, as would usb 2/ bluetooth etc., and I'm sure this is just a matter of time.
Just kind of sick of all the Powerbook / iBook stuff, thought I'd create a different thread.
Still want the coffee dispenser
Considering how hosed apple has been by Motorola lately, I wouldn't bet against a DP iMac. If the iMac went DP, even at a significantly lower clock speed than the PowerMac, it would spur developers to write more and more multi-threaded applications. This in turn would allow apple some breathing room if their chip supplier isn't clocking them up fast enough. Once the majority of apps are optimized for SMP it becomes easy to add power by simply adding a processor.Originally posted by edesignuk

Just when we were starting to get along you have to go back to the coffee thing, leave it alone.Originally posted by thanetman
And the iCoffee dispenser?
Hey man, I'm sorry if I'm coming across as an a$$, I appriciate a sence of humor and you will find alot of humor around the fourms.Originally posted by thanetman
apologies for humour, will try to be more serious from now on.
at first, a 40 gig iPod sounded like a lot, but the more i think about it the more it seems reasonable. although, i think a 30 gig might be a little more practical just because of the cost. i would think that the 10 gig would be the best selling of the current iPod line, because its a better deal(case, capacity, and remote) than the 5, and significantly cheaper than the $500 the 20 gig costs. anyone know for sure what the best selling is? anyway, dont worry about the multiple posting, just use the edit option from now onOriginally posted by thanetman
Yes I could fill a 40gig iPod, otherwise I wouldn't need it. 8000 songs is not that much, and that is just at a bit rate of 128. Most of my stuff is encoded at 192, so that is gonna be less than 8000 songs. I own approx 550 albums, and would love to have them all on a portable device such as the iPod. Really, this is not such a strange idea, other similar consumer devices have 40 gig, but the iPod is a work of art, so a 40 gig iPod - why not?
As for the multiple posts, yeah sorry. You know how you suddenly remember something that you wanted to say when it's too late? Thats me. Won't do it again!!!
