    Anyone have any info about when I can expect to see some H.264 action on the apple trailer site? Also, how much will the pro key cost this time?

    I get some chopping on my G5 as well. Granted it is the single 1.8, but I have plenty of RAM.

    I don't understand what they're trying to do... if top of the line notebooks can't play them, and 95% of people have worse computers that'll stutter even worse, then what's the purpose of the H.264 videos? Bloody hell...

    The ones they're talking about are 1080p, which is currently the highest of High Definition standards.

    the "p" part in particular is what's takingit over the edge for most machines because that little "p" stands for "orgressive scan", meaning that the entire frame is refreshed at once, as opposed to interlaced (a.k.a. "i"), which refreshes every other line at once, so the odd lines get refreshed, then the even lines get refreshed. interlaced video is technically only refreshing half the frame image area at a time, progressive scan video is refreshing the whole thing, so it's much more taxing on your video card. This is one of those areas where upgrading to the bigger video card in the 15" Rev. D PowerBook would have paid off.

    Did you guys even bother to check the system requirements posted on Apples site?

    For 1280x720 (720p) video at 24-30 frames per second:
    1.8 GHz PowerMac G5 or faster Macintosh computer
    At least 256 MB of RAM
    64 MB or greater video card

    For 1920x1080 (1080p) video at 24-30 frames per second:
    Dual 2.0 GHz PowerMac G5 or faster Macintosh computer
    At least 512 MB of RAM
    128 MB or greater video card

    Doesn't look like a Powerbook can play either of these HD resolutions at full speed.

    This is why I bought a HD television. My iBook is for Futurama and Family Guy.
