    Is this a Dual Processor unit..
    I received it but can't power it on to test but I was wondering if somebody could tell me if this is a single processor Dual Core or a dual processor dual core?

    From what I can tell it's a single Dual Core 2.3Ghz G5.

    Why is it not powering on? Did you purchase it used?

    This should be your machine.

    A G5 in 2001 huh...



    I called Apple today. After 20 minutes on the phone the girl found the part I needed. She said the purchase date on my computer was June 2005. It is the last PowerMac before they went MacPro.

    To the OP, 2.5Ghz Quad I have seen go for $2000. Yours is worth less but it's still a very useable machine.

    And to the other poster, where do you get a 7 year old machine? Did you read my URL?

    2.3 GHz Dual introduced 2005.10.19 at $2,499; replaced by Mac Pro 2006.08.07
    requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

    3 year old machine. Hope I don't come off as being mean, but I do not want the OP thinking he owns a piece of junk. It's still an excellent machine.

    The cord came in 9 bucks for it and Apple overnighted it!!! I plug up and I don't even get a light when I push power. Could it be the power supply? If I have the power supply from a 1.8 G5 could I put it in this computer?
