Reports of the demise of the Power Mac G4/667 MHz model seem to be true. Check out the
Apple Store and you’ll see that the system is missing from the product line.
As we reported
yesterday, Apple had planned to phase out model. The company has given no official announcement as to why (or even that it has canned the 667 system, for that matter). However, the product apparently doesn’t fulfill a viable niche in the lineup. The 553MHz model (available in single and dual processor) versions satisfies the midrange market, while the 733 MHz Power Mac serves the high end. (Thanks to MacCentral reader Patrick DiEugenio for the heads-up on this one.)
