"And I'm going to own a PowerMac. Therein lies the problem. I want a PowerMac. But the current line is 7 months old and was announced 10 months ago. Apple has not updated its computers in a very long time. I thought IBM was going to end the Motorola debacle, but apparently they must be having problems with the G5's production."

Surely it ought to be enough to bring out a new model every three years or so? Is there really enough progress in hardware design in a year to justify new models?

Perhaps the portable gadgets (iPod etc) might be restyled more often, as they are fashion oriented. But a desktop computer?
