You can't believe everything you read you know. :-)

AFAIK, Apple and Motorola are getting IBM to help out with the 500MHz
G4 production while Mot work out a Altivec related bug that showed up
when they went over 500. They're also testing 780MHz chips that
aren't real far away. IBM are working with a different fab, but I
don't think AIM is on the rocks like you seem to be possibly
suggesting.

Would you rather Apple have shipped them and then recalled like Intel
did with the Pentium? Patience is key, the dual-core G4 monsters will
arrive.



kind regards,
Richard McLean
