Amazon Posts Specs for 2.7 GHz Power Mac G5

TMO Reports - Amazon Posts Specs for 2.7 GHz Power Mac G5

by , 10:25 AM EDT, April 26th, 2005

Amazon has posted the specs for an unreleased 2.7 GHz dual processor Power Mac G5 model on its Web site. Listed as an unreleased product for pre-order, the retailing giant is offering a 2.7 GHz Power Mac G5 with 512 megabytes of RAM, a 250 gigabyte hard drive, and a 16x dual-layer SuperDrive. The list price for the unit is given as US$3,000, with Amazon's price set at $2,994.99. No release date is listed on Amazon's page.

Such a machine is not currently listed at Apple's Web site or the Apple Store, nor has it been announced by Apple. The company is notoriously careful with allowing information on unannounced products to be released, and Amazon's listing is most likely accidental.
