a lot of things came out on Macs before windows, like USB, Firewire, CPU's over 1 GHZ, CD burners, digital cameras and so-on
well, the powermac G5 doesnt run at a combined 4GHz, but it runs, essetinally, two independent procs each at 2GHz. So, the data can be split and sent to the procs and processed with full speed and then churned out. Super speedy.
And also, to say that Apple came out with everything before PCs is wrong. I am an apple zealot to boot, but Im still going to say that most everything you mentioned came out from PC first or concurrently.
-AGP 8x: been on PCs for months now.
-PCI-X: Apple is actually first in this one, but PCs soon followed suit as the technology was finally accepted.
-USB: A concurent technology. Early USB support was flaky from both windows and apple, but Id have to say that Apple did come out with more solid USB support first.
-Firewire: Apple and Sony actually invented Firewire, so yeah, thats one for Apple.
-1 Ghz+ Computers: Actually, Apple was much slower in breaking the 1 GHz barrier. AMD was actually the first chip maker to break the 1 Ghz barrier with its Athlon Thunderbird chip.
-Cd Burners: Were on PC's first. SCSI add on external drives for mac came, but PC's had the first CD burners.
-Digital Camera: Concurrent; the maturity of the USB spec and the universal acceptence of flash media allowed digital cameras to be used by both apple and windows users.
