you are very well probably right in your first reply (i dont have a newer machine to test this on), but the ability to hold option to choose the startup disc is not what makes a new world machine. my imac 333 is a new world machine, and i cannot hold option to choose the startup disc. a new world machine is one in which the boot up rom is stored on the hard drive as opposed to on a rom chip on the logic board
