"The fastest, most configurable Mac ever" indeed. Today at WWDC 2006 (check out our coverage and the chatcast) Apple introduced the Mac Pro, and it might as well come with a pair of hot pads with all-new features like this: Two 2.66GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon "Woodcrest" processors 4MB shared L...

Most of you didn't bite on the last Mac Pro rumor from Think Secret. New Power Mac case design, sure, but the idea of them sporting Intel's Core 2 Duo (aka, Conroe) procs just didn't fly what with Intel's more flexible 64-bit Xeon (Woodcrest) chip already loosed. No sweat, enter AppleInsider whose s...

Imagine waking up one morning to find that a glowing green goo was dripping from the cheese-grater bottom of your shiny Power Mac. Horrible even to imagine, I know. Unfortunately, this has become a reality for some owners of recent liquid cooled Power Macs. According to reports, the leaks stem from...

Eureka! After all this MacBook/Intel Mac news lately, we finally come across some news about the good ol' faithful PowerMac, or to be more specific: 600 of them. Taking a cue from Microsoft Vista naming conventions, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is releasing a James Bond Ultimate Edition DVD Col...

Flickr user digitaldust saw this mailbox one day and snapped a quick shot (no, it's not his). Though we don't agree with the photo's title, we still think it's pretty cool. We can hear the conversations that this thing spawns now: "Honey, will you check the mail on the Mac?" "Which one...livingroom...

Ok, just one more TV rig, we promise.* Flickr user beenester asks, "Is it overkill to use a 1.8GHz Powermac G5 as a TV computer?" We say, "Heck, no!" "Overkill?" posted by beenester. If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply upload photos into our group Flickr pool. We select one ima...

Oh, the poor Power Mac G5. Apple's "Big Kahuna" now looks downright elderly, being the only Mac that isn't sporting a rockin' Intel chip. I'm guessing that Apple's pro level machine won't make its Intel debut until January's Macworld Expo, but it's fun to speculate on what could be in store for that...

Apple released the MacBook, its new consumer laptop, today. The full tech specs -- which are over at Apple's site -- mention that the MacBook features an Intel GMA950: in other words, an integrated graphics chip identical to the Mac mini. Previously we've summarized the disadvantages of integrated g...

Check out this well-appointed desk. Flickr user dsiercks shows off a pair of Powerbooks, two iMacs (one with iSight, one without), one Powermac G5 (with an iSight of its own) and twin displays. We'd say you can get some work done with that set up. "workstation" posted by dsiercks. If you...

Ok, we admit it. This photo was chosen partly for the nice (and still active) 8600 in the shot, and partly to put up a post that contains the word "phosphoimager." According to rnafan, the photographer, a phosphoimager is "...a piece of equipment that scans radioactivity." I lik...

What's a big news day without a little bit of a hardware smack down? Call me crazy, but I just found this Gear Live site through diggdot.us, and these guys posted a video podcast in a variety of formats of a MacBook Pro with a (comparatively) measly 1 GB RAM making mince meat out of a Dual 2.0 GHz P...

Before we all get completely flabbergasted by Apple's efforts to allow users to run Windows on their Macs, let's respect our elders, shall we? This isn't the first time Apple has supplied Mac owners with an official solution for running Windows. The DOS Compatibility Card was released for the Powerm...

The Cult of Mac is pointing to the above photo from Badtech.org. Who knew iMacs and Powermacs would come from the same tree? There's no explanation for the photo, so it's pretty much a mystery. If you're familiar with this display, let us know!...

Could you put together a sweet holiday DVD for grandma and grandpa with this set up, or what? Flickr user and TUAW reader trancepriest shows off his Power Mac G5, two huge Cinema Displays, iSight, video editing keyboard, a couple of cameras and other cool looking stuff that I can't even identify. &...

Engadget has compiled their list of tech awards for 2005, as selected by the readers and Engadget editors. Categories ranged from "Gadget of the Year" to "Disappointment of the Year." Apple received six readers' choice awards (but no editors' picks, oddly enough). So, here's how ...

Listen hither, ye name-bashing heathens: Apple made a gutsy move kicking creativity in the crotch by axing the "PowerBook" moniker on the pro laptop line and changing it to "MacBook Pro," but Steve made his intentions very clear during the Macworld keynote by blatantly stating, &...
