If anybody knows of commercial pages that refer to the G5 put them here.

Epson Sweden has the G5 for real in a printer ad (in Swedish)

MacNN.com came first with this message.

"EPL-5800 - A4-skrivare med skrivhastighet 10 sid/min och ett papperskassett för 150 ark. Standard utrustade EPL-5800 kan kopplas till Apple iMac och Apple G3/G4/G5/Cube (O.S 8.1 eller högre) direkt från ur lådan med den så kallade "Quickdraw driver", via USB. Det finns dock inget stöd för PostScript fonter eller EPS filer. "

Here is the link:

http://www.epson.se/products/printers/lasers/epl5800/

So ... anybody else...?????

I read some more and found this -> USB och parallellt IEEE 1284-gränssnitt är standard.

What is IEEE 1284?

What you think ?

is it possible that we see a G5 in next time ?

New Printer for iMac G4/G5/Cube

Thats cool because if its a mistake ---> Think the last word is Cube not G5 when it were G5 ok i can say they wrote some **** at their site, but so ... ?

You dont say "this Printer is ready for PC, iMac, G4/G5/Cube"

When this Computers are not available ....
Iam very sure that we will see a G5 VERY VERY soon.

And the iMac now has a G4, thats also too strong for a Consumer Computer, who says I buy a PRO even if he has 1,2 GHz ITS A G4
So i say i take the big iMac and have 800 G4 with a Superdrive and monitor !

What more ?!
So Iam very sure to see a "real" G5 soon

No G5 cube!

Maybe they meant that it works on:

G4's/G5's/and the Cube (the G4 one, of course).

I seriously doubt that Apple would make a G5 cube.

YAH! I can only hope the G5/G5 Cube part is true!

Hopefully this isn't a fluke, and hopefully Apple knows what to do for a G5 cube this time....

This is stupid, dont speculate about a dumb G5 cube. It aint happening, certainly not before a G5 tower.

They put imac seperate from it because it is the worlds most famous computer.

Who said...

It was going to happen before..? They would launch both products at the same time... As long as the cube is not overpriced (around $300 more than the iMac) but comes with some revolutionary features it should be able to take off from the ground.

What about the neXt cube??? Did that ever suceed? Or did it end up as the cube we all know?

Firstly:
If apple did launch a G5 cube and towers then they wouldnt launch them at the same time. We covered this in the imac2 debate, it makes no marketing sense.

secondly:
semi-pro users want expandability, whether they need it or not, they want it.

Thirdly:
To price a G5 cube 300$ above the imac would make the cube around 2100$, which is too much for a semi-pro user.

fourthly:
Apple needs to concentrate on getting the pro-line up to scratch so they are able to cater for their 2 biggest markets (consumer,pro), until they concentrate and put money into developing the new towers then they will not put any effort into a cube.

the only way...

1st...
there isn't going to be a G5 cube...

2nd...
if there ever was one, and it was $300 over the price of the iMac, it would flop again...

3rd...
let's not discuss a G5 cube because it pointless!

G3/G4/G5/Cube

It never said G5 Cube.

It said G3/G4/G5/Cube - it works on all those systems.

To Err is Epson.

Companies list products as they appear in VAX inventory databases:

A G4 cube : iMac/G4 450/128/30Gb/1000bt/56k/RADEON/$1299.95/In stock

so iMac/G4/G5/Cube translates as: works with all USB Macs.

OK......

I know I got a little too carried away, but why not classify the Cube as a G4 instead of its own system? Even apple has classified it as a Low end G4.

The Apple G5 will be out January 21st 2002. It will start at 1.2 Ghz and go up from there. Within a year it will be over 2 Ghz. Also, new colors for the PM will be in the offing. Most all of the Major software will be out by spring. About April, most of the stragglers will be on board.

re:OK............

Simple. As I illustrated above:people are morons. If you tell them it works with "All USB Macs" they'll blink at you and say"Yeah but what about my iMac?"or"Oh good so it should work in my Quadra" or "I thought USB was just a research OS"

I had a customer get in a screaming match with each of 5 employees in a Mac only (Apple Specialists thank you) store I worked for insisting that her old LC III had Parallel and we were LYING to her that Macs had never had Parallel. She had already bought two SCSI 3 cables, thinking they were Parallel and furious that we sold faulty, non-standard connectors. She never did get it. She earned the title "screaming Lady" as every time she came in she had some hairbrained falsehood in mind that she'd defend as if she were the only compitant tech on earth, as if it was all some conspiracy we'd concocted to make her look stupid.

G5's in January? Where's the evidence? Many companies have done misquotes like that. I remember companies saying that their hardware and software would support copeland >_<

the way it goes I suppose...

Macs are so cool to look at...so they naturally look great in the backgrounds of movies and tv....but nobody wants to bother using them since they are under mind-control by Windoze... :mad:

it's a known fact...

it's very well known that people are often scared of things they do not know nor understand....causing them to sometimes be closed-minded to new ideas & philosophies...

hence the reason there are Macintosh-illiterate people running around!!
