Yes a price would be sweet. The question is, do I go wild and sell my powermac for one of these G5s, or not. Gah the choices!!

My money is ready and waiting. I doubt I'd be able to afford the dual 2GHz :( so it's either 1.6 or 1.8. The inclusion of PCI-X is a bit suspisious isn't it? There no cards for it and it's not planned to be in x86 mobo's for ages :s

PCI-X is has already been implemented and used today, especially in business applications, isn't it?

It's PCI Express that'll take a while to come out...

Always get the two mixed up. One is faster than PCI and backwards compatible.

The other is even faster but not backwards compatible.

So I'm guessing it's PCI-X that is the backwards compatible one since it's the one being included.

Edit: Just wanna add the specs are pretty impressive as well. Hopefully they're true(no reason to believe they're not), cause I am still looking for a notebook, and if they put the new chip in those I know what I'm buying next.

Thing is now though, if this was just someone within apple who works on the apple store having a laugh, we're all gonna be disappointed as hell when steve announced G4's at 1.25, 1.42 and 1.6...

According to the guys a spymac a few people called Apple to order the Dual 2 Ghz G5 machines and one of them got "I did not realize we were selling them yet"... then "I'm sorry we are not allowed to discuss unannounced products".

Another person got "I'm not supposed to tell you this but call back on Monday afternoon and we will have those machines for you." :)

I think we should all try to call and see what happens. Has anyone tried this?

If all you want is a G4, why don't you just get a 12" power book? They are not too much more now than iBooks.
