Before I get too excited, does this really mean anything?

Lets hope a new revision, DDR2, PCI Express Graphics, Airport N, 10,000k HD, Bluetooth 2, 20x DVD-RW, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY 3.0GHZ

Now hopefully Apple has learned their lesson. Thank you IBM for finally producing an adequate number of G5 processors. Now for both of them working in concert with the next update, so that there will be supply to meet demand.

That would mean a full year between upgrades. I can't see that happening. PM sales are surely hurting as they're losing their competitive edge against cheaper alternatives. Apple needs to do something.

Well, it could mean something, although I wouldn't get my hopes up. The fact that they're meeting demand could mean that 1) they're increasing the supply, i.e. producing adequate supply of 2.5 ghz chips; or 2) the demand is slacking off. Hopefully, it means the former, and IBM has finally figured out how to fab 90nm 970s. This could mean that a speed bump, and possibly the introduction of the 970gx, is around the corner.
