Lets take a look at this. Stevie boy says 3 gig G5 within a year on June 23 2003. G5 2 gig's are not shipping until the end of Sept in any numbers which is the best case scenario as of today Sept 4. That leaves 9 months to bump speeds from 2 - 3 gigs. This means a speed bump will need to come in Jan - March to someplace in the 2.5 gig range. Does any of that make sense. Unfortunately I'm using a dinosaur and needed to upgrade 1 year ago but have been putting it off waiting for a G5. If your not desperate now, WAIT!
