I've read the same thing on Think Secret.

Makes you wonder what Apple has in store for this year's WWDC in June.
I can't see them updating the G5 tomorrow and then announcing dual core in June. Looks like I might be waiting for a while for my dream dual dual.

Exciting stuff none the less.

On the financial news today there were reports of new iPods coming in June, possibly with multimedia capabilities. http://www.forbes.com/markets/2005/0...ahoo&referrer=

The research firm said Apple Computer could launch a new flash-memory-based device and multimedia device using PortalPlayer's solution ahead of the holiday season.

I've been watching the "new Mac" buzz for about a month now because I *seriously* need to replace my well-aged DP450 so I can get something that can run FCE and edit DV at a decent pace. I've been planning on buying an 20" iMac, but I would just wanna EAT MY HAT if I bought one and then a new model was released a week or so later.

And so, I continue to wait for a new, refreshed model. :-(

Duane,

If you can wait, wait, if not, buy now. I couldn't wait for a G5 DP 2 ghz Power Mac, to be released November 2003. I needed it in September, when the 1.6 and the 1.8 (both single processors) shipped. I couldn't justify a 1.8 single, so I got a 1.6. I hope to upgrade by the end of this year, beginning of next.

Well, I can wait for probably another 6 weeks, but that's about it. I'm shooting like mad right now, and I figure that by the middle of June I'm gonna have 30+ hours of footage to start to edit down to 55 minutes. My target date for completion is September, so I really need as much time to edit as possible -- since, you know, I have NO idea what I'm doing. LOL!

We shall see what, if anything, happens today. Who knows, maybe I'll buy the low-model PowerMac instead of the high-model iMac. <shrug>

Well, I guess the rumor is true:


Amazon lists the new G5


They may have jumped the gun.
Apple will probably make the announcement tomorrow.

I mentioned that in another thread about Amazon. Also, Apple ain't happy about a book on Jobs:
