Apple is adding several new Power Macs to their product line, including the 2 x 2.5GHz dual-core PowerPC G5-toting “Quad” system. Apple has stated that all new Power Macs will come with dual-core processors as well as PCI Express and faster video cards. The G5 Quad is not for the feint of heart, coming in at a wallet-stopping $3,299, making it the most expensive desktop system sold by a large retailer on the market today.

On top of the new PowerMacs, Apple has also boosted the popular PowerBook, with increased battery life on certain models and high-resolution displays. The 17” high-resolution model of PowerBook will be available for $2499, which is about in-line with the very high-end notebooks you can get today.
