Is that supposed to be funny?
Attention Internet Users!

"it's" contraction of "it is"
"its" possessive form of the pronoun "it".

It's shameful how grammar on the Internet is losing its accuracy.

Those are some damned fine specs, if I do say so myself.

Excellent work on the guts of the machine. If this thing is available immediately Jobs must be very pleased.

Dual 2ghz G5 w/ 8GB DDR and 3 PCI-X would be a real ass-kicker.

Damn... wish I had money.

Where do you get the '2 different mobos' from? The PCI/PCI-X line?

Just curious.

I'm most interested in the optical audio in and out. Can we have surround audio hardware, Apple?

Leaked specs still online at 11:50 EDT.

Could it be a hack? Someone sneaking in and posting that just to stir things up? It almost seems like an AI'er wet dream. It'd be sweet if it's real.
post #27 of 1072
I'm guessing the low-end will have PCI and the two higher-ends will have PCI-X. Or just the highest-end.

Also note: "Up to 1ghz processor bus"

the Dual 2ghz is going to be a monster.

It's been a while since Apple has released a monster.

Just curious...how could something like this happen?
A disgruntled Webmaster or employee? If the launch is supposedly to happen Monday, why would anyone be screwing around with changes to the site so early?
post #30 of 1072
Still there at the Apple store, 10:52 pm CDT. Just saw it myself

That's classic!

All this secrecy and waiting, and some doofus spills the beans four days early. First Time Canada, now this. Jobs is, no doubt, beside himself.

Someone in Cupertino is going to be jobless tomorrow morning...
