Howdy In case you didn't know, the G5s are here. Read all about it at Apple's Site . See the WWDC presentation from Steve Jobs here . Many have speculated Apple's speed test to be somewhat bogus. This is a point I don't really care too much about. I just want it to do the one thing my PC has never done and that is, work like a Mac. I couldn't give an ass and a half if it plays back a million tracks each with 17 SPX90 emulators...cos the reality for me is, almost ANY modern computer will allow you to make music with far too many plugins, tracks and delayed decisions. I think this is a record, going off topic in the first post...discuss.
