But I had my heart set on the idea that they'd keep one single processor machine as the lowest-level G5 and cut the price down to about $1599 (it was $1799), at which point I would immediately scoop it up. :)
Sigh. Didn't want to spend $1999 for a new G5.
seems like the liquid cooling wasn't that necessary.
Rumors are flying that the liquid cooling system is how they plan to design those G5 PowerBoks we're all pining for. Logic presumes it would be handy for designing G5 iMacs and eMacs, as well.
I see the temperature has shot up to almost 70° F in London. Mind you don't get heat stroke! (Cheerio..)

Hmm, the liquid cooling still depends on a fan to cool off the attached heatsink? I always thought Apple had a "thou shalt not put fans in laptops" edict of some sort. :)
I had a friend that worked in Austin for Dell - all the PCs that came off the line that didn't pass inspection were sent to a special Factory outlet lab where they would crack them open and look for what was wrong.
He said 9/10 times it was something really basic, like the power supply wasn't connected to the mobo, or the hard drive cable wasn't plugged in firmly.
The ones with defective parts were rare, and were usually cannibalized for replacement parts.
I can tell you first hand the G5s are heating up. I have a Dual 2x G5. Put your hand behind the thing and you can really feel the heating coming out of that thing. I was suprised by how quiet it is though.
