    In my mind
    I'm ready for CS3, which isnt supposed to be released until the powermacs go intel. Apple needs to hurry the fuck up.

    educational discount only gets your $50 off?
    i still want one. i really wanted a mac mini core duo
    i'd have to wait though, because apple is notorious for putting way too much thermal compound on the chips.
    every ibook i've ever touched has been super hot.
    i'll wait and see the comparison between them and how they actually run on benchmarks
    what apple needs to do is release another desktop. a powermac G5 is usualy too beefy for some people, but having the possibilty of easy expandability is nice..
    you can't expand an imac or mac mini easily, without diy guides. they need something in between

    wait a second, the black one is $200 extra for it being black and having 20 extra gigs...lame. i have a feeling that you will see black shells for sale, for people who don't want to spend the difference

    I don't think the thermal grease is an accident.

    8 cores. That's my guess.

    And make the case smaller. Mine is so huge.
