If your looking for a good compromise, the 2.3 would be a good choice due to the 8 slots for Ram as opposed to the 4 slots with the low end dual.<br><br>

It used to be 1.8. 2. 2.5 and 2.7, I think. <br><br>Faster DVD burner and better graphics? Maybe not. <br><br>

I made a purchase last week (Tues) after keynote of the dual 2. I made one config change on the order (256 meg video card) and it said it would ship in 3 to 5. I got an email yesterday stating that there was some "unforseen circumstances" and now they may not ship until the 21st. frown Now the config is changing and I am buying the low end machine.....<br><br>

Did the price change on the dual 2 gig? A friend was going to buy and he told me it actually went up. Is that true?<br><br>

You should be able to change the order, right?<br><br>

NO changes to the specs of the actual machines- only thing that changed is they dropped the low-end single-processor 1.8 model...<br><br>That's it, people. I'm guessing there'll be either some minor bumps at MW in July or simply some price drops...<br><br><br>Back in Black...

The 'new' label has been up since they introduced the line of Powermacs you see on the site- dual 2, 2.3, 2.7...<br><br>Hey Trog, eat me. <br><br><br>(your move)<br><br>Back in Black...

Thats funny Trog LOL<br><br>Pete<br><br>Like what the others said the 2.3 looks like the better rig deal<br>Unless the 400 mhz counts to you and the slightly larger front bus. Plus you plan to buy the 30 inch display<br><br>

The dual 2-gig is enough for me- I've come to the conclusion that you should never buy a Mac like it's going to last you 10 years, because ultimately Apple always comes out with something cooler and you're going to want to upgrade in about 4 or 5 at the most.<br><br>So the 'low-end' dual 2-gig (or whatever it winds up being in the next few weeks) will be good enough for me- hell I was almost ready to snatch up the single 1.8 until they took it off the site! Anything made in the last 2-3 years trumps my dual-500mhz by a longshot...<br><br><br>Back in Black...
