Sonnet says it is developing a G5 CPU upgrade for Power Mac G5 systems and that it intends to use the newer PowerPC "G4" 7448 in future G4 processor upgrades, although it has no timeframe for either product, according to MacGadget; Audio e-tailer Musician's Friend is now an authorized Apple retailer; and Realmac's "Rock with RapidWeaver" contest offers an iPod mini for the best designed theme.

    What's that? Vaporware? Has Moto ever said it was fabricating a 7448? Link?

    G5 Upgrades!

    Awesome! Nice to hear that it's even a possibility. Hopefully that's not just up to the 2GHz models though. I'd love to be able to upgrade my dual 2GHz to a full, balls-out liquid nitrogen cooled dual 3GHz with dual cores! Hahaha!
