Money. I haven't checked the rumor myself yet, but i'm told pixar are making the move from SGI to G5s. It sort of makes sense i suppose when you look at the price of SGI workstations and then think that pixar would get G5s at cost price anyway.
Eh.. maybe because Steve Jobs is the CEO of both company? ;-)
Also the G5 / X Serve Raid have the best cost/ perf one can get for server.
Mac have a very bad reputation about their pricing which is totaly erroneous since the coming of the G5. MY friend is starting a web hosting company and he didnt beleive me until I did the price comparison in front of him that G5 servers are cheaper than their Dell equivalent, yet more powerfull... Now, if they could do such an aggressive pricing for the workstation products...
