PC Magazine
24 September 2006
  • Conclusion: The Apple Power Mac Quad is the latest and greatest in the Power Mac line. If the Apple iMac G5 isn't enough computer for your Mac OS needs, then the Power Mac Quad will blow you away.
  • Pros: Blazing multimedia performance for professionals. Two cores in two chips equal hiccup-free performance. 1TB of drive space. Future-proof PCIe and DDR2 technologies.
  • Cons: nVidia Quadro graphics are overkill. Very expensive. Not compatible with DDR SDRAM and PCI/PCI-X expansion cards used in previous generations of Power Macs. Only 90 days of included tech support.
