Apple has shipped the long-awaited dual 800MHz Power Mac G4 Server it had been expected to launch at Apple Expo Paris (until that show was cancelled after the 11 September terrorist attacks).

The machine isn't much to get excited about - essentially it's a version of the dual-CPU desktop Quicksilver Power Mac with Mac OS X Server installed. You don't get more memory, or a bigger hard drive. You don't even get the desktop's DVD-R/CD-RW SuperDrive, just a plain old CD-RW.

Fortunately for users with big wallets, there's a range of Ultra SCSI hard drives and RAM upgrades available through Apple's build-to-order sales service. ®
