>From the Apple web site:

"Awesome processing power
You can choose from three super models: the dual 800MHz Power Mac G4 with
SuperDrive, 867MHz Power Mac G4 with SuperDrive or the 733MHz Power Mac G4
with a CD-RW drive."

So the fastest iSeries has a slower chip than the standard Mac.

This is not trivial.  The slow cpu of the iSeries prevents modern
programming languages from being used on our system.
