Hypothetical scenario: A person buys an iMac G5 and three year AppleCare. Two and a half years down the road the mobo "mysteriously" "fails". Apple, of course has since released new revisions with faster CPUs and GPUs, and stopped producing the now snail slow 1.6GHz models - IBM doesn't even make the chips, and the 5200fx is ancient history. Person gets a fast new machine. Apple would be silly to not provide an avenue for honest people to upgrade the mobo. - Jasen.
