According to www.macworld.co.uk ,Motorola are going to spin off the cpu business as a separate until. I expect this is because Apple does not want to use their chips anymore. I hope this means IBM will be making the G4s in future, IBM might be able to get it up to 2Ghz. Or maybe this G3 with Altivec is what Apple is going to replace the G4 with (until they can put the G5 in powerbooks/imac). IBMs G3 has many advantages over Moto's G4. These include DDR bus support and lower power usage.
