Wow! They've certainly got enough prizes to go around, but I worry that the US-only restriction might limit the number of entrants.

They do say that they are planning on having a worldwide contest later, though.

Nice one. Is it just me or does winning second place sound better then winning a stupid car? I mean "100 - Apple Power Mac G5's" can you say CLUSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'd rather take 100 G5's over some stupid ass car. I'm happy as hell with my 02 VW Golf GLS I don't need a car. But hey it's a good prize. (but you can't cluster a 2004 Toyota Prius) :D

LOL, I think they mean they have 100 macs to give away. You only get one. But still, I wouldn't want my car insurance to be too high, so i'll take the G5.
