Just got back from SIGGRAPH and I was suprised that Apple had very little presence, especially with the G5. The Apple booth was set up only for software presentations - Shake, DVD Studio Pro, Final Cut, etc. I saw 2 G5s on the floor. The first was in the Apple booth, but was not featured and the other was at the Pixar booth and was being used for demonstrations. The Pixar demonstrations were impressive. The rep had the CPU monitor up the whole time he was rendering and it was never maxed out. Also the machine was VERY quiet. Until I saw the monitor, I thought for sure that it was not turned on. I would have thought that this would have been a good place to show off the G5s against the Wintel boxes espcially since there were several vendors showing off Opteron systems curiously running XP. I can only think that there are very few of these machines assembled if they couldn't even get a few out for people to get their hands on.
