I thought everything was teriffic - really beyond my expectations in every area except one: PowerMac. Why? If you're going for a 15" screen and you aren't planning on a PCI upgrade, the high-end iMac (800) saves you over $1000 compared to the 867 PowerMac, despite the Crystal Clear promo, and gives you 128MB more memory to boot.
The reality-distortion field created by these great new products has distracted us from our speed problem, but for how long? Intel and AMD announced 2.2 GHz today/tomorrow. I don't know about anyone else, but being stuck at 867MHz as our fastest chip...I no longer feel comfortable referring to this as a MHz gap. At a difference of almost 1.5GHz, this is certainly now a GHz Gap.
Apple needs to get out of this fast - with a large jump. Anything under 1.4GHz, at this point, leaves us in roughly the same situation we are today.
How soon can Apple close this gap?! Or can it?
