Hi there,

I'm actually in the moscone center right now, and I've been able to 
play around a bit with the new machines in Apple's development lab.

This is still a bit early, and there are a couple of things to sort 
out, but a G5 running at 2GHz will provide about 20% better performance 
for Gromacs than a Xeon running at 3GHz.

At least for US universities Apple also discounts

(The G5 dual G5 will also scale better, but I haven't been able to test 
that yet since LAM-MPI doesn't work due to a bug somewhere...)
