OK...so we don't know for sure if/when the 970's will be released, and if they are, we don't know what machines we will see them in. However, suppose that apple announces the 970's in the powermac during the summer. What then, will happen to the prices of the g4 powermacs? IF the 970's are supposed to be "ground breaking" and so much faster, etc, etc, than the current g4's than either apple will have to charge a crapload for a 970, or introduce the 970's at about the same as the current g4's prices. Then I would assume that the current g4's prices will fall. If the current g4's prices fall then will that affect the sales of the imacs or emacs, etc, etc...I guess we'll all have to wait and see how it all plays out!
