I just purchased and love my 1.6GHz G5 and notice none of the apple websites mention it. Like did they discontinue it? When I chose 1.6 rather than
1.8 or 2.0GHz I read something that implied that manufacturers equip them with too much speed ( sound familiar?) Unless one planned on doing
video editing one desn need it.
My two cents!!!
I think it is mostly a matter of what you actually need. The majority of us could probably get by with an ibm style 286, but we all like the rush of the latest and greatest. I drive a 1967 Chevie El Camino the vast majority of the time cause it does what I need with reasonable gas mileage, however, there is nothing I like better than driving my 1970 Chevelle SS with 533 horsepower getting 9 miles to the gallon...(See avitar) I feel it's the same with computers... I love my G5 duel 2's, but i certainly could do what I need to do with a 500 mhz quite easy...
