Im not exactly sure which generation Apple is on, but I have a 2005 G5 and really want to swap for a new one. The main thing I am waiting for is a internal Blu Ray player (sorry to those who have read about that before). If they go Blu Ray or not when does Apple typically bring out new Mac Pro's? I read the newest one is pretty new, so I am not thinking this year. Plus with Apple not making Mac World a big deal anymore (The one in Jan in S.F), I am curious when they might bring out their new model. I know you guys/girls are not fortune tellers, but an educated guess will do. Also, I figure this is not possible due to lack of the intel chip on my current G5, but is there any possible way to hook up the 2005 (no Intel chip) to a current Mac Pro with Intel. So I could run both systems? It's not a big deal at all, but I would like to have the 2005 G5 doing something besides collecting dust (though I am sure I can find a use for it anyway). I am video editor who uses Final Cut so the more power the better!!! Well that goes for anyone I have ever met. thanks for info and your opinions, sorry for a repeat info, but its a big purchase that will last me many years. I would not have any problems if I had Intel on my G5, I would just upgrade RAM and a Graphics card. Plus I am running two 1.5TB drives. Which is a reason I drool over the new Mac Pro, 4 slots! Add in a Blu Ray drive and I am sold!
