You'll have the 970 inside your Mac by end of next year, early 2004.... um, maybe, you know, if my sources are correct. <br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

Nice. <br><br>I'm keeping my fingers crossed that a new imac will be under the tree on Christmas morning. Been pretty subtle too. I've been leaving printouts of the "Review your order" of a super drive imac from the Apple store all over the house for the last six months. Wonder if my wife gets the hint? <br><br>

Well.. no Santa here. I'll be buying this one myself. You have no idea what it's taken to convince my "other half" that I really do need to go into debt for a new machine.
