New PowerMac and LCD Tips and Tidbits

Some collected information on new hardware:

  • New PowerMacs are Mac OS X-Only (booting) (old OS 9 models are available)

  • The Low End PowerMac is now a single-processor machine (Was a dual 867)

  • Apple's 20" LCD appears to require Mac OS X v10.2 (presumably for drivers).

  • Apple's now discontinued 22" LCD can be found for $1499 from retailers.

  • Noise problems claim to be solved in the new PowerMacs

  • Apple's 23" LCD saw a significant price drop (by $1500) and now retails for $1999.

  • A common internet myth is that Apple "overclocked" it's high end G4 processors. This is simply speculation and appears not to be true for the 1.25GHz processors. These appear to be clocked by Motorola at 1.25GHz. The 1.42GHz processors should similarly be assumed to be Motorola parts.
