Steve Morris writes in with the following link: MacUser article predicted on Jan 22, 2002:

MacUser sources have confirmed that next Tuesday, 22 January, is the most likely date for the release of Apple\'s first ever 1GHz Power Mac.

Sounds good

Well this seems about right but what about the iPod,iBook, or Powerbook. Powerbook upgraded to powermac speeds at seybold. iBook upgraded to iMac speeds at Tokyo. Ipod well the new toshiba hard drive shuld come into play by late April (6 months after intial release). Expect the missing remote, bigger hard drive (up to 20gigs.) and maybe a multimedia veiwer option (using iPhoto +Quicktime?). The last part maybe part of a whole new digital device.

Should be great anyway

Except all the devices that are waiting for an upgrade... there's the powermac who needs to be upgraded as soon as possible and you know why.. So I guess, that's probably the main reason of this annoncement, cause i've never seen 2 annocement in a row from Apple, I could be wrong, but as far as I know....
Second, I was waiting for 1.2 Ghz not a 1Ghz.... i know, 1 Ghz it,S very fast but I need much more. But if I was getting a 1Ghz, this computer isn't that far away from the high-end iMac, so that's another reason why I'm looking for a 1.2GHz minimum.

2 months ago, i expected a G5 for san francisco and I didn,t get it, also i'm realising this G5 won't be released till july, that ,s what I heard, but you know, it,S only a rumor:)

This is one of the configuration that I'm dreaming of:

1.2Ghz G4 apollo ( G5, if it's possible )
DDR-RAM
GeFORCE 3 9 this one is standard in PowerMac
Superdrive ( standard too!!!)
USB 2.0
Gigawire
...... but you know, it's pretty inpossible... but should be great !

Hell why not just go for a 1.6 ghz.
Crap on the pc market in thier game..what the hell..id laugh...even if it doesnt matter with macs.

i believe a 700 or 800mhz mac is the same as a 1ghz wintel just in speed of course and although the piping is a lot better in a mac..but you all know that.
sorry for a yawn of a post.

I know what i want

I want a G4 or G5 which ever comes first with 1.4 ghz, 100 gb hd, ddr ram, gigawaire, usb 2.0, 400mhz bus, L3 cache, superdrive, 17 inch flat panel for around $500. I hope to see this soon because i cant hang on much longer with my 6500/225 603e chip

i believe he was refering to just the price of the 17" flat panel. thats just my speculation. on the other hand if he really wants all that for 500 then i will go kill myself.

Do you think you could reach the 50 post per day, you're not that far, after all... or even 100 post ? could be great :)

Espresso, that's the solution

Don't do that... it,s dangerous, that,s gonna drive you crazy :)
But that's probably the only way to make this 100 post per day a reality.... so without hesitation, drink them!


( it's a Mac rumors forum and we're talking about espresso, that's pretty cool! isn't it !)
