Are all G5 specs locked in at this point?

Posted:

Given that it has just started shipping yesterday, could Apple have made some minor (and not so minor) changes to the G5 since it's unveiling?

Maybe, it's rearranging the ports or adding a covering on the front power buttons etc..

Has Apple ever done this before in previous releases?

    Only if you order it - it requires an external antenna though.

    No, you have to buy it separately.

    And AirPort built-in? Most people with desktops use Ethernet.

    The G5 specs aren't locked in at all, so close to shipping. We're actually going to get double the processor for the same price! That's right, the 1.6 and 1.8 will become duals, and the dual 2.0 wil become a quad.
