a friend who works at a major gear maker in tech support told me that the imacs have the agere (thus he said stay away)

one reasonably knowledgeable source, but i would get more data points. i certainly wouldn't run out and buy one this minute

Nope. The only Imac that had a TI firewire chip was the model with the Imac G5 serie 1.8GHZ till 2.0Ghz and the Imac G5 Isight Serie 1.9GHz till 2.1 GHz.
After that when they switch to Intel they got all Agere chips inside. Even in Mac pro you find them... what occurse some of the wierdest firewire probs ever...

They are loosing out on me on that issue.

I have had my share of firewire problems and I won't us anything else than TI.

I was about to by Mac but will build a PC instead.

By by Mac/Apple!

So stupid when they know how many into audio that use firewire. Leaving out the FW on the macbook was a funny move as well. Guess they hope they can force a purchase of a Macbook pro but I think that's a mistake.
