Hmmm.... could prove very interesting ... Maybe Apple should buy the company.

I think its just the guts of a dual gig with some other goodies and YDL preinstalled...

Isn't it against FCC regulations to do something like that?

I know they've been doing this for a little while, offering PowerMac G4 equivalent in a rackspace format. I hadn't looked recently so I didn't know they were up to dual 1GHz.

This isn't really future hardware related though. So I'm moving this to Current hardware.

I think you're missing something. What they were doing before was Linux only hardware built on non-Apple PPC motherboards.

This hardware runs OS X. It's built by Apple!

At first I thought they must just be buying off-the-shelf Apple hardware and sticking the guts into thr rackmount cases, but a close inspection of the specs reveals that's not the case.

They come with only 1 PCI slot and it's a 64/66 slot unlike the 64/33 PCI slots that come with the PowerMacs. They also only come with 2 DIMM slots, not 3.

This means they have an agreement with Apple where Apple builds special rack-mount PowerMac internals for them. I think that's one interesting bit of news that relates to Apple's future hardware plans.

Read the FAQ. It states that this is an Apple motherboard, the same that comes with the Power Mac. It comes with a right angle PCI adapter that covers up the other PCI slots. As for the RAM, all they are saying is that it comes with 1GB RAM in 2 modules, but that does not mean the 3rd slot is not there.

One of these was on sale on Ebay-a regular poster to xlr8yourmac.

Here's the link: <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2016389451" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2016389451</a>

Looks like it didn't sell.
