ATA-100 Bus for New G4 Lineup

zzipp writes "Just last week, I bought a Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 7200 rpm 40.9GB Hard Drive at CompUSA. It's one of their new ATA-100 Drives. When installing it into my G4, I noticed the Maxtor label on the drive had the Apple logo on it, with a very Apple looking part number: YH03101H2J28A The Drive is model 54098U8 and it was manufactured in August, 2000.
I can only deduce that this drive is part of a batch that was manufactured specifically for Apple's use, and perhaps there was some over stock. in any event, I believe this to be a good sign that Apple will be moving up the the ATA-100 "standard" for latest G4 machines that will be announced next week. Please check with your sources. "
