The Quadra 660AV has a new lease on life. Apple's announcement to dealers that the Quadra 660AV 8/500/CD model (M2691LL/A) is being replaced with a similar model (M2691LL/B) containing a tray-loading CD-ROM drive, effective today, suggests that the machine will be around for a while longer. (Its cousin, the Quadra 660AV model with 8 MB of memory and a 230 MB hard drive, was converted to the Apple CD300i Plus tray-loading drive a while back.) The Quadra 660AV models cost several hundred dollars less than similarly configured Power Macintosh 6100 models. [MHA]
