Possible release with the Athlon 64.
I bet 99.5% of people who clicked this though someone modded one of Apple's Cube with a G5 ?
Yep, and you can imagine my disappointment
damned false advertising....
Exactly. I was thinking to myself ``man, what processor did they stuff in there now?''
Yes, and by the way - that's not a cube. A cube has equal dimensions on all sides.
That's a shoe box
Whatever it is, it's damn ugly.
Trogdor should stomp and burninate it!!!
Hmm, a 64 bit toaster, did you know it can address twice the amount of bread as a ordanary 32 bit toaster?
Sorry... I just thought it was interesting. It is the same size as the cube layed on its side. The cube wasn't really a cube, remember. This uses desktop components, can take two hard drives and a full sized optical drive. Makes a cool little linux box.
Well, it was basically a Cube if you count the actual computer part and not the plastic base so it woul stand up sort of suspended. But yes, the PC side can now say they have the first 64 bit shoe box.
Did anyone think that when the saw the G5 box this morning on apple site, it was a new G5 cube. I quickly realized it was not, but I got my hopes up for a millisecond.
Dang... I bet the first person to modify a cube to be a dual 2.0GHZ G5 could sell it for 4 thousand dollars
Well, if you shrink down the G5 box to avatar size, it makes one nifty looking G5 cube!
Hahahahaha! Well said!
Speaking of Trogdor
There is a new StrongBad up today, I know it supposed to updated every monday, but lately its kind been a little off schedule.
Warning contains a Bear holding a shark, not for those weak of heart.
Re: First 64-bit "cube"
Doesnt a cube imply that all sides are the same size?
Yeah, but "First 64 bit Rectangular Prism" doesn't sound as good.
Indeed I did for a similar amount of time.
If Shuttle can make a "rectangular prizm" that can support a CPU that draws 89 watts (the P4 version) plus an AGP card that draws 59 watts, plus two hard drives, a DVD burner, and a PCI card, then Apple can make at least a single G5 cube...
if the market demanded it...
which it does not.
Re: Re: First 64-bit "cube"
As mentioned before the guts of the G4 cube were in a cube but the whole system was the same size as this.
Also this holds more, and has an internal power supply, my biggest caveat with the G4 cube...
