Hi.
Im about to buy a new G5 from the Apple web site. Its seems to be the cheapest with the educational discount. Im looking at a Dual 1.8, 1GB RAM, 160 GB HD. £1430 inc.

Ive looked at the same specs with a single 1.8 and it about £320 cheaper. Which is a lot!

My question is this: Are the single 1.8 motherboards the same? Could I fit another 1.8 or 2.5 processor in later when I had more cash?

Thanks .

while the g5's are very upgradeable, Im pretty sure you cant add another processor, you can replace it, but if its a single, you cant replace it with a dual, the motherboard wont take 2 if it was meant for 1. that seems like a good price, though Id recommend not paying all thatr extra for the ram, get the default amount, 512mb I think, and order a 1 gig stick from crucial or owc. thatll save you at least a hundred easy.
