As was mentioned at barefeats.com, the price of a faster Mac is about 20 percent higher for a 20 percent increase in speed.

The initial cost is a one-time charge.

But the savings in speed and time is perpetual.

If you're using your Mac to make a living and time is money, this is money repeatedly saved.

See point 6 on this page at Apple's website. I've not had any stability issues with the several first generation G5's I have contact with. I don't own one, but the school I teach at has several. they all perform flawlessly.

Does anyone know when in July the 2.5 is supposed to be released? I don't want to order it until there's a more solid date than sometime in July.

"Does anyone know when in July the 2.5 is supposed to be released?"

My order status says "on or before July 30".

Apple will start shipping, when they start shipping. In other words they will not pre-announce a ship date. They just start shipping.

The "New" 1.8GHz has 3 PCI slots, the other "New" models have PCI-X slots. If you go with the stock video card you will have three slots of the respective type, as noted above. However, If you opt for the Radeon 9800 XT, you'll lose a slot. The card is so wide to accommodate the needed heat sinks etc., it overlaps onto an additional slot.
