Apple limits G4 BTO options
Edward Mintz reports that Apple has removed the option to lower RAM and Hard Disk allotments with new BTO (Built-to-Order) Power Mac G4 configurations. This means users can no longer reduce the stock RAM or Hard Drive configuration and purchase products from a third party.

Prior to the introduction of new Power Mac models last month, Apple users were offered more flexibility through Apple's online store.

Yes, no traces at all on these three brochures."
