PowerMac G5

Waking up this morning at 5:30am to see the update from WWDC, and then from Apple's website it has already displayed the updated PowerMac that boasts a G5 processor. Wow. PowerMac G5First of all, the aluminium enclosure might not be that impressive. In fact, I found myself like the old MDD or Quicksilver PowerMac better with their white plastic case. The new PowerMac certainly has that "brush metal" theme that is populating in all Apple's iApps. It looks "fast" and "professional". While fitted with 9 fans, and it can still manage to be quiet. Nice.

What's even better is in the inside. From the SPEC benchmarks, a dual 2Ghz is even faster than dual 3Gz Xeon in both integer and floating point operations. Now it also has up to 1Ghz memory bus to ensure the fast CPU is always feed, Apple certainly looks like it is going to be crowned as the speed king again.

I am still waiting for the PowerBook G5 - hopefully we will get a hint on when it is going to be released in the next few days of WWDC.

And Safari 1.0 (v85) has been released. Just get it installed, and the only thing I've noticed is that "bug" button disappears. Well, I might need to look harder for differences.

Well done Apple!
