Default Rumored New Mac

Check out this Mac description from a rumor site:

Rackmount Server Rumor

I normally wouldn't waste everyone's time with a Mac rumor, but doesn't this sound like the ideal Mac for Pro Tools? Low cost, rackmountable, durable Mac with hot swap drives and lots of PCI slots, basic graphics card and lots of room for RAM. This sure would be cool if it turns out to be true. Wishful thinking I guess.

IF... it were to have removable IDE or hot-swap UW SCSI built in, that would be cool, but the coolest thing would be if it had some intelligent internal-access scheme; ie the whole thing rolls out like a drawer to access RAM, PCI slots, etc. I dunno about you, but as nice as it is to have a G4 marathon-racked, it's a PITA to try and get at anything in there (add RAM, add drives, re-seat PCI cards, etc) since the Mac was made to hinge open while standing vertically.

yes, I know. but it's still a precarious upward-tilting kludge to get inside there when it's horizontal.

Apple has confirmed that they are announcing new servers 5/14, let's hope that they are as cool as the rumors.
