<strong>So, to sum up the thread there are exactly two sources for the near future relaease of the G5:
1) The Tinkerbell effect - apprently, if we all wish hard enough, it will be true (aka, the JYD/Ryan Meader effect).
2) A two year old link on ZDNET.
The evidence for the G4 Apollo (SOI or die shrink or both) continues to carry the OVERWHELMING evidence.
I wish rumors died faster.
The G5 is not coming in the next year. To wish otherwise is to set yourself up for disappointment.
Don't count out this Apollo chip, kids. SOI and die shrinks are serious enhancements to speed scaling. Combined with dual processor configs, the Powermac G4
will hold its own soon enough.

Sorry, I'm new to this thread. Go to
" target="_blank">The Register</a> and do a search for "G5". You'll find they've been posting articles about the supposed progress of the G5 pretty regularly for over two years (their first mention of the Moto G5 is October 6, 1999). That's the source of most of my expectations. While The Reg is occasionally off the wall, usually they are pretty reliable. I tend to believe that there's something to it.
