The system is scheduled for release this month give or take a few weeks, and will cost $1599. Developers can also register for a free workstation.

There are no quad-core chips in PPC-land either. The Open Server Workstation is a dual-dual core setup.

It's still a pretty good price, especially for a pre-built machine, but you could get a dual Opteron 250 setup that's faster for less money.
