Can't Replace G4 Cube Video Card?

Well, rumors are rumors.

I do believe Steve Jobs struck all mention of ATI and the Radeon card from his keynote speech, and had Radeon cards removed from G4s in the Apple booth, but I don't believe that he altered the entire product line out of spite. ATI is not ready to ship their Mac cards, and won't be until late September - well after the new 4s are set to debut, and perhaps even after the Cube will ship. It would be tough to ship those machines with a non-existent card, obviously. Our contacts at ATI would say that Radeon would be a future option, but did not mention when this would take place in the Apple line.

ATI Blunder

Obviously you all must've read the rumor, though, that cubes were supposed to be oem radeon BTO; but then the ATI blunder. Damn I hope this is true--my 500 cube is already on order, but i gotta upgrade that card.

You forgot to mention that if you bought one of Apple's new monitors with the ADC connector you would only be able to replace the video card with an ADC-compatible one.

Whoohoo! More Apple innovation.
