Yeah, and my guess is that next Jan or Feb Apple bumps the Powermacs to 2.0, dual 2.2, dual 2.4.
Then July 2004, IBM is fabbing 90 nm G5s and the Powermacs go to 2.4, dual 2.6, dual 3.0, along with new Powerbook G5s.
Mac hardware is looking excellent in the foreseeable future, at least with respect to performance.
