      Not much other than a more mature hacking effort on the older PPC
      ones. Someone made a comment that they thought the fan runs louder
      on the MIPS based one so perhaps it gets hotter? It would be nice
      if someone could run a USB speed test on the MIPS to see if they
      fixed the "debug mode left in the kernel" problem that the PPC ones
      had or not. If the USB speed is much greater on the MIPS, that
      would be good for many people.

      It is just a guess, but maybe Melco was having the same problem
      Apple has had getting enough PPC's out of Freescale/IBM to fill the
      orders?
