Where are the Intel Towers?

I'm probably going to be making a computer purchase - or two - this year. I wish Apple had its Intel towers out already so that I could replace my 2 x 2.0 G5 with a second-generation product, but it doesn't appear that it's going to be possible.

The tower is now, as many have already pointed out, the only non-Intel-powered computer Apple really sells. The MacBook, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, and iMac have all gone the way of Intel. Only the G5 lingers…

When oh when will we see the G5 replaced with something super-fast from Intel by Apple? What will the form factor look like? What other features will it have? Will it cost me less than $3k? 🙂

  1. Well profesionnal applications like Photoshop needs to be intel ready before they can afford to change that line.

  2. I don't think so. Apple's got - or is nearly finished with - the intel compatibility of their "Pro" apps. They're not going to wait for Photoshop, due in 2007 the last time I checked, to be Intel-ready. Rosetta is what it is, and if the chips are fast enough, will run at least as fast under Rosetta as it does on a three-year-old chip.

  3. The Pro Macs will most likely feature Intel's Core 2 Duo, which is supposed to reach speeds up to 3 GHz,

  4. er... Xserve?


    i really cant wait for the new towers... i wonder what they'll be called. (not that i can afford one.)

  5. I hope they will be out soon.
