So, it looks like very little has been happening at Apple HQ in August 2013 – absolutely nothing new to report :/ So, I thought I would go back 10 years and give you Apple’s news from August 2003! Here goes…
August 2003 was the month that Appel shipped their new flagship desktop Mac, the PowerMac G5, one of the first 64-bit professional desktops to be released, it featured a dual 2.0GHz Power-PC G5 processor with the following specs:
- 1.6GHz, 1.8GHz or 2.0GHz Power-PC G5 Processor
- 800MHz front-side bus
- 256MB 333 MHz 128-bit DDR memory
- 4 DIMMs, 4GB maximum memory
- 80GB Serial ATA hard drive
- AGP 8X Pro graphics slot
- NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra-64MB DDR graphics card
- 3 PCI slots (64-bit, 33 MHz) and
- 4x SuperDrive
Pricing for the new Macs started at $1,999 and rose to $2,999 which even now is expensive for a Mac and their press release proudly states that they have had over 100,000 orders since the June announcements – nothing compared to the 3rd quarter statement that Apple just announced xD
Here is a picture of the proud beast –
