All this over a chip a good deal slower than a Athlon 64 X2 3800+... going into systems that are starting around $1300. At least now we know a bit better the profit margin Apple's getting on those things... a heck of a lot.

I doubt the apple OS even takes advantage of 64 bit computing.

Yeah, it does... the G5 is a 64-bit processor.

Now to wait for someone to try and install Windows on the iMac or MacBook :p Apple claims it hasn't done anything to prevent Windows from working on the new macs, but I've heard there are too many changes in hardware from regular PCs for Windows to be able to run.

Linux will come out for it. Within 2 months, tops. Just wait and see.

The biggest obstacle for an OSX/Windows dual-boot is the Mac core logic as well as Mac-compatible video cards (unless they finally got off of AGP and went to PCIe with the new generation).
