A few things to remember here folks before you dismiss these specs...

1. What has Apple been working on for the last 2 years while the G4 stagnated in speed and irrelevant spec tweaking?
2. We all know the 970 was disigned FOR Apple
3. Serial ATA is the hot thing in the PC world.

The bottom line is this: Apple HAS to introduce something that will garner them the most press attention and they do this by going full bore on the specs. They have to, since they have become irrelevant in the eyes of the PC crowd. Apple has been biding their time with the G4 until the 970 was done to introduce the next generation Mac that will put us ahead again.

Also, don't forget, we still have Panther to look forward to and that one has been really secret as well.

I'm looking forward to this, its going to be huge.

Well, that didnt take to long to take down, but the damage is done, whether real or not.

Hmmm
If this is a guy who works on the Apple site then he just kissed his job goodbye, unless it was either a hacker or a plot by Apple to generate excitement.
If it all turns out like this, then it will be a big deal this year for Apple

S-ATA/150 is not the 'Big thing' in the PC world. SATA-RAID only give us a glimpse of what SATA/300 could be like. I've been using a 160GB Maxtor S-ATA/150 drive in my PC months before it was available to the mass-market, and it's only marginally faster than ATA/133 IDE. The problem is that there's only one manufacturer that has a drive that is worth anything, and that's Western Digital with their Raptor 10K RPM S-ATA drive, but frankly, i've had crap luck with WD in the last five years and won't trust data to them.

If Apple goes for SATA, then great. But Jobs is typically a cautious man, and I'd be willing to bet that he'll go for SATA/300 once drives actually show performance benefits with Serial-ATA over IDE with big caches.

The RAM maximum is certainly possible, but I am doubt that will be a shipping amount.

The 8GB would only be the max on the top end model though, because as I recall, each PPC970 will have its own bank of RAM. So the Single machines would have a max of 4GB.
