# Low end Dual

Dual 2.5Ghz

Single 2.0Ghz

Dual 1.8Ghz

Single 1.8Ghz

Dual 1.4Ghz

I would for sure by a dual 1.4, the dual 2.0 is just to pricey.

528memberOnce Apple upgrades the iMacs to G5s there is no reason why all the PowerMac G5s wouldn't be duals. Well maybe except for the lowend. Apple likes to keep the low-end a single for those that need the expandability of a tower, but not the power.

106memberI can't afford to buy a dual so I'll wait til MWSF & hope to have a pleasant surprise.

Push the price down to $1899, I think apple would get alot more business. They could release this after the 970 revisions (hopefully upto 2.5Ghz. The line up then could be like this

I wish Apple's current G5 lineup was like this:

Single 1.2Ghz

Dual 1.2GHz

Single 1.6GHz

Dusl 1.6GHz

Single 2.0GHz

Dusl 2.0GHz

I don't know why they can't offer dual's in all the models. I want a dual but I don't want to spend 3grand.

270memberI suspect that they'll still keep a low-end single around (like a single 2.0), but the other two systems would be duals (2.2 and 2.5 GHz, perhaps). This would probably allow Mac users conditioned to think "multiprocessor good!" to get what they want while saving some money.

We'll probably see 4, but I doubt we'll see 5.I was almost going to say Apple never had 5 or 6 configs of the G4 Tower, BUT... when Apple introduced the MacOS X only booting G4 Towers, they did have 1 or 2 other G4 Towers that still supported MacOS 9. So in total I guess you could say Apple had 4-5 G4 Tower Configs.

It may be possible we'll see 4 G5 configs at some point, but like you, I doubt we'll see 5.

More likely would be a single 1.8 and all the rest duals. Dual costs more $ than singles, so your low end machine should be dual.
