theyve gone as high as 4.8, look it up, he has the 975 to do that, the $999 one. yeah right. 12GB ram? wtf? id go for 16 dude not that expensive,oh wait ddr3 means 2gb per chip max, and core i7 has mch integrated, so ddr3 is the only choice, right. he has maxed out ram (975 has 3 channels of two dimm slots each, so 3channels x 2 slots each x 2GB per slot=12GB)

I put the ipod specs in brackets!
the ipod and iphone procs are underclocked, the 2nd gen underclocks less but has the same proc, i have an iphone 3g and when i get something i learn everything about it (i know how cell phone networks work, and how the iphone works, every stage of it booting, lots more, im a bit of a bookworm but online) it has a 620MHz arm, and arm is better (architecturaly, not usefully) than x86, so it would run the same program faster if it was recompiled from x86 to armv7

he'll probably admit that it was designed badly (i hav a similar one, it was too, im gettin a new one, even tho this ones blue tinted and used to glow when my UV cold cathodes hit it, it was a $60 case and I should have gotten a more expensive better engineered one)
