    Hey, I've found another mathmatical thing about the new G5.

    You see, 5 while pressing the shift button is the % sign.
    So now it is G%.
    In physics, G= 9.8m/s/s
    So, the newest G5s will have a 9.8% increase in speed from the dual 1 gigs of today.

    Keeping in tune with this,

    1000 Mhz x 9.8% = 1960 or somewhere around 1.1 GHz to begin with. Apple is probably not gunna bump up a processor 100 Mhz and give it a new name. I predict that the newest G5s will carry somewhere around a 1.3, 1.4 or 1.5 Ghz core speed.

    You know something? I reckon you've got way too much time on your hands.

    Also, 1000 x 9.8% ≠ 1960. You may want to check your math :)

    Here's another riddle for you guys:

    First letter in the word Dinosaur.
    Last vowel of the alphabet.
    The only letter used in a famous candy snack package.
    The first letter of a word describing a female dog.

    The abbreviations for Post Office.
    The Titanic _unk earlier in the 1900s.
    The _itanic sunk earlier in the 1900s.

    d u m b _ p o s t

    Anyone could rumor that a possible G4 at 1.4GHz would come out. 1.3GHz has not been rumored often, and 1.5GHz seems out of the question.

    I think this thread needs to die away.

    yeah sry, I had the right math of 1098 Mhz, but I was tinkering with another theroy and I forgot to change the number and yes, I do have too much time on my hands, even though it took me 5 minutes to think that one up.

    9.8% = 0.098
    1000 * 0.098 = 98Mhz
    you really need to check your math :)

    Makes G5orbust the burned out bulb in the package (before you even open it up and get any use out of it :D). I agree with the above assessment that he has way too much free time on his hands. He needs to get some kind of hobby, other then the kind that happens in the dark, alone ;).
