$129 according to Steve Jobs at the WWDC 07 conference.

Compared to what exactly? Linux? It certainly isn't steep compared to Vista.

Yeah, remember the WWDC speech? Leopard Home, Leopard Pro, Leopard Business and Leopard Ultimate, all $129. Gave me a good laugh.

is leopard going to be available for PPC macs??? Or is Tiger the max for us PPC lovers.

I heard that the Intel macs run slower than the PPC ones....

Is that true???

It could be because the Intel mac has mor RAM.

That is quite likely and it probably also has a faster processor. I have had both a Power Mac G5 and a Mac Pro Intel. They both run quite well. The G5 had a 2.0 processor with 2 gig of ram and the Intel has a 2.66 processor with 4 gig of ram... Which would you expect to run faster?

Mac Pro Intel 2.66 - 4 Gigs Ram - 10.6.1 - 30" Apple Monitor
iMac 24" 2 gigs ram - MacBook Pro

It's a tough comparison to make - especially during bootup, when there are a lot of factors that can impact how long it takes.

The PPC-series of CPUs is inherently superior to the x86 architecture. It's 100% RISC, runs cooler and is more efficient overall. Frankly, if it weren't for the Wintel empire, all of our machines would probably be running PPC CPUs today. But I digress...

Even still, so much more development has gone into the Intel architecture that it has evolved several times faster than the PPC series. The Intel chips tend to run at higher clock rates and have multiple cores. I would find it hard to believe (aside from the G5 Mac Pro) that any of the PPC Macs are faster than the Intel replacements running native applications.
