Reload your cache, or clear it. The specs are GONE.

Refresh, the real ones are back fro me. Fairly obvious they shut down to replace that pic. Kinda confirms an error. Maybe the guy who did it will get fired in 20 minutes and get mad and post all kinds of info tomorrow.

now, copy that into your browser and muck around with the numbers at the end.





See the difference.

[edit: oh damn, the changed image is already gone. i've got it saved on my hard drive if someone can host it for me.]

Well, that means that it wasn't a hack, and just a missed file in the wrong directory.

This is so awesome!

Ok guys, here are the two images in question, side by side. I found both of these on the akamai server.

I had to host it myself since it was already taken off of Apple's site.

I know nothing about web serving stuff. Is the fact they found and deleted it so quickly make it more or less likely that it was real? If it had been hacked could Apple have fixed it that fast?
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.

I already posted the image in yahoo!'s aapl board. I've got it on my server and the link is there. I just hope that I don't get too much traffic. Got bandwidth usage to worry about...

It is too late. The damage has been done. There is nothing they can do but, Jesus, dual 2GHz? I don't think anyone was expecting that. Hope the prices are that fantastic.

There is a pic of Jobs giving Gates oral gratification on the front page of the apple store now. And in big green letter it says "PUNKd".

Jokin lol

That would be brutal though. hahaha

I think we all should chip in and get BRussel a dozen krispy kreme donuts from being the astute mac head that his he to find this little gem when it could've easily have gone unnoticed.

I raise my glass to you BRussel, thanks for making ALL of our weeks, weekend, next week and quite possibly the year. This is going to be a classic at AI.

Well, you have to be pretty damn good to hack a site. You have to be even better to hack a store that grabs personal data and credit cards. That means you go to jail when you hack. Why risk going to jail for hacking a site when there's 1) no political statement, 2) no monetary gains and 3) so deep and hard to find and such a small detail?

No hack. It's either accidental or purposeful mistake.

I didn't read through every post in this thread, so forgive me if someone already posted this, but the "3 PCI or PCI-X expansion slots" doesn't necessarily mean two different mainboards.

Take a look at this image from a PCI-X article at Anandtech, it clearly shows how you can use either a PCI card or a PCI-X card in the same slot, but not both at the same time.



Note 3GIO = PCI-X.

G3 is an IBM processor. I think it's just an Apple thing.

From the Ars forum


"On calling the Apple store:

Clamps: I was calling because you list the PowerMac G5 on your website in the Apple store. Is it for sale?

Long pause. 10 seconds or more.

Seller: All I can say now is that Apple cannot comment."

post #156 of 1072
Next question:

What real-world performance does each model achieve? At what price?

SOME suspense left for Monday!

Oh... and the physical appearance. Which in Apple's case is also worthy of some excitement.

Amazing specs. I would have bet money--nay, even Krispy Kremes--that nothing this good would be out any time soon.

I suspect single 970s perform quite well--and they can sell more of them than if they offered duals and ran out!
post #157 of 1072
He's got to mention it. It would just be too funny. There's a million ways you could go with it. Something like first thing he says is ...

"Well you know the spec's so lets skip to the bake off".

Or maybe ... "Skip this slide you've seen it. Next ... Next ... "

Jobs: " which brings me to the new PowerMac lineup featuring the PPC G5 and USB 2.0, but that should come as no surprise to most of you I'm sure."

Audience: *laughing*

Jobs: "Shut up."

And he assures us all that the guy who made the slip up has been fired, or at least gotten a good tongue lashing.

Wow! The store came back up briefly but then I think they realized the image was still cached. It went back down again, and then when it came back up, the new-old image had a -1 appended to the end of it so it would load fresh.

Wild. God I hope that is real.

1.6 low end?

Too bad there wasn't a picture of the actual case too......

Optical I/O is cool.
8GB DDR SDRAM is cool.
Dual 2GHz 970 will be hot.

*and there was much rejoicing*

a much more interesting leaked pic than quibbles over case design

any chance that some WWDC attendees live under rocks and won't know the specs below the "one-more-thing" curtain?
