  • So is 7b85 definitely the build that's shipping on 10/24? Once the secret updater runs to remove the debug code?

  • I may be wrong here, but I think part of your slowdown could be your Mac running fsck (the file system checker) at startup. I think if you enable [http://www.macobserver.com/tip/2002/11/13.1.shtml]journaling[/URL] fsck won't run at every startup. Yo…

  • Yep, it's CL3 RAM. I just got mine today. You know what else it is? It's fast as all get out hell. I got it to replace my B&W G3 and man, it SMOKES! Q3A runs great, RTCW is smooth as polished glass. It may not be a G5, but I wouldn't know any be…
  • Thanks KidRed, now I can't sleep tonight because my dual-1GHz is sitting in a FedEx warehouse waiting to be delivered tomorrow! I had almost pushed it out of my mind until tomorrow, but NOOOOOOO, I had to come in here and read what I have to wait un…
  • I haven't been around in a while. I thought the G5 has been out for ~6 weeks, right? I read that last time I was here...
  • I doubt they'd go down to just 10 megs. Although losing 4.99 gigs would make it smaller, it still seems like a downgrade. </sarcasm>

  • I think it's a great design! The only fatal flaw is there's no space for PCI cards. I love the "suitcase feel" though.
  • I just doesn't seem reasonable that Apple would announce a speedbumped G4 tomorrow and then the G5 in the next 2-3 months. They've been pretty strict about the product rev times over the last few years, and that timeframe seems a little quick. I cou…
  • BillM said what I've been thinking for a long time, and thanks for that. My only problem with a lot of these sys. requirement options and MHz arguments is that "who needs that?" is not a valid response. Microsoft Word may not run faster, but games d…
  • Small? If anything, I'd like a bigger case! More PCI slots and please at least one more front-accessible drive bay. Smaller for an addition to the product matrix, but the pros should be bigger.

  • As someone said in another post, Apple probably doesn't want to make a big event over breaking the gigahertz barrier. Even though that's great for us, it looks awfully slow when compared (number to number) to Intel/AMD processors.
  • I think it might make more sense for Apple to debut new Pro PMs at
