There IS a lot of space down there. I am only seeing 4 RAM slots, like you... which is weird considering the placement of them puts them right next to the big empty hole. Maybe they will have future expansion RAM there...I haven't a clue.Veldek said:But I'm wondering what the extra space in the lower left corner is for...
Yeah, I read that, too, but why should there be some harddisks and some others on the whole other side of the Power Mac. I can't imagine this being very efficient considering that there has to be some kind of connection.keysersoze said:EDIT: The article actually says the space could be used for 1TB of storage...why didn't I think of that?!?
Right. And I am not sure how the HD's would mount in there anyway...they took out the metal separator... so I wonder how they could reside in there. And the vertical fans are gone...1TB of storage would require a lot of fans, I would think. I don't know though, considering I've never been in the presence of so much storage capacity.Veldek said:Yeah, I read that, too, but why should there be some harddisks and some others on the whole other side of the Power Mac.

I was snooping around in the System folder looking for a file and there was a configuration file for the About This Mac window (not a .plist, maybe a .bundle, I can't remember). In there were configurations for Single, Dual, Triple, and Quadruple Processor configurations. Now that could be just covering the bases, maybe for use in a server environment, but I figured I'd point it out.edesignuk said:There is no way tis will be quad
There are now 2GB DDR ram sticks available, maybe apple things we don't need more than 8GB RAM..Veldek said:The bad news: still only one optical drive and not more space for the harddisks in the upper right corner. But I'm wondering what the extra space in the lower left corner is for...
And why are there only 4 RAM slots?
I don't see why not, aside from the production problems with the 90NM.. but that never stopped Apple from 'releasing' the product anyway and just saying "unavailable until rapture."edesignuk said:There is no way tis will be quad
