Single processor G5 (tower) is no more.

June 21, 2005


Apple is starting to focus more on the dual-processor technology. The
first steps in this direction were made Monday. Starting from
yesterday, the single-processor Power Mac G5 systems will be removed
from Applešs online store offer.

Apple customers had noticed from last week that the 1.8GHz single
processor machines were no longer available, but it was only
yesterday that Apple commented on the decision.

"The 1.8 GHz Power Mac G5 is no longer available at the online Apple
Store but is available in other channels while supplies last," the
Cupertino-based company said in a statement provided to CNET News.com.

"The Power Mac G5 line is now all dual processor and delivers the
ultimate in performance for our most advanced customers.", they added.

For those who think the dual-core machine packs too much power or is
too expensive for their budgets, the company recommends the iMac G5.
