There were consultants writing to stick with the 680x0 line then as well. Apple has make no secret it's flipping the entire line.
-> As to obsolete, that only happens when the machine doesn't serve its purpose. Not when it's no longer made, offered, etc.
I notice that Apple has taken to concluding its recent launch announcements with '...and it's shipping next week!'
But I also notice that Apple has been very quiet about the future of the G5 models when talking about the migration to Intel processors. Does anyone know what the plan is?
I always recommend these machines as the industrial-grade solution for audio/video work - and I really don't want to be the guy that recommended a machine that was obsoleted seven days later.
