    I wonder if a dual 1.8 G5 user could bump it up to a dual 2.3ghz machine. After that you'd need that watercooling thing the 2.5's had.

    but keep in mind the core duo is going to end its life between 2.3 and 2.5ghz

    Yea, I'm aware. I didn't know if the G5 chips are hardwired in or if a user could pop them out & put in an upgrade.

    They're on a 65nm fab, and just because they're the best right now doesn't mean that they will be in two years.
