Default New PowerMac G5's

Well? What does everyone think of the PowerMac G5's that Apple announced?

Will anyone be buying one? :amazed:

Personally, I think that they look pretty nice, though This Article does show how they're "cheating" in the tests a little. And they're expensive.

Meh, they look OK but they're waaaay to expensive. Maybe I'd buy one if I was rich, but then again probably not... there's not much I can do on a Mac that can't be done on my PC

i dunno the translation of us to canadian dollars so I can't tell you if thats a good deal. But, I can tell you that its a sweet system. It could use about 512 megs more of ram and then it will fly
