It seems their hardware issues are not limited only to gen 1 products.
 I just had to have logic boards replaced on 5 eMacs, all purchased in
August 2004.  I was lucky  enough to convince the engineers they
shipped faulty hardware and get the repairs covered w/out warranty
though, so cheers to apple for clean up their mess.

I suppose its not just apple, I recently had a dell server hard drive
go bad after a month of use.

So my question is, if I am planning to purchase an xserve or two in
the near future, do I get a g5 model or wait for the intels, which
will probably mean waiting for the 2nd version of the intels...
