    dual across the board now, with 2x2.5GHz at the top, with option for radeon 9800XT. Was hoping to see the X800, but hopefully that will be an option soon as well.

    Actually, i wish apple would switch to the nvidia 6800, as the nvidia typically beats ATI in openGL performance.

    Too bad they couldn't get those 3Ghz machines out that they predicted a year ago, but liquid cooled Dual 2.5Ghz G5s is good enough in my book... hell, my G3 800Mhz is still plugging along just fine.

    I gotta say, I am dissapointed that they had to go to liquid cooling this quickly -- but oh well. I think that it will be standard in about 2 years anyways. Go Apple for hitting 2.5GHz

    Looks like I'll be robbing a bank so I can get a G5 and a Cinema Display - I used to work with a 23" cinema and LOVED it

    ... not quite. AMD has been at 1600MHz for a while now, and is now at 2GHZ on the new boards/chips. But still, 1.25GHz is nothing to be ashamed of -- its WAY higher than Intel!
