But is it really the fastest? Steve Jobs thinks so.

Steve Jobs unveiled the latest overpriced, yet cool lookin' Mac today ... the new 64 bit G5.

At up to 2 GHz in processor speed, the new chip (designed by IBM) claims it can handle twice as much data at once as Intel's traditional chips ... even though Intel unveiled it's 3.2 gig chip last week. That's a bold statement considering the company it's in. But jobs says it isn't the horse power, that delivers the speed but the transmission. And the G5s 64 bit technology promises to leave Intel and AMD (which will release it's 64 bit chip in September) in the digital dust.

It had better considering what Apple will probably charge for it ... $2,999 for the 2.0 GHz model.
