SKT174, that review is out of proportion and most likely from a mac hater. You can't really use that as a good review. A good review has to be from an unbiased opinion.

It certainly seems to have all the stuff. Dual 2ghz processors, with dual 1ghz front side buses. Thats pretty impressive! And they beat intel and amd to the market with a 64bit chip.

Only thing I'm wondering is what can you use a mac for? Can it run normal games with an emulator or something?

You never get unbiased reviews from the company that makes the component, computer etc. The marketing machine will always make it sound like the greatest thing out.
The new operating system on the mac is a unix like os, i think its based on freeBSD.
Anyhow I've seen one running crossover office, which runs windows applications. For games I think you can compile transgamings winex for mac, not sure though..

But the design is so smooth. I would love one of them. It's like a ferrari with a holden engine compared to a Daimante with a lamborghini engine.

Any enough about cars... I'd probably rip out their processors and put my own dual 2.8GHz Antlons in and then dual boot Win2k and Linux. But that kinda defeats the purpose. And I ain't got that much money.

Mac's can't run anything that isn't designed for them ($$$). But it does run on UNIX so theres hope.

But it's so smooth....:x
