so awesome. @_@ :drool1:

At the Lowry Digital Images facility, over 600 Macintosh dual-processor G5 computers utilizing over 2400 gigabytes of RAM and 478 terabytes (over 478 million megabytes) of hard drive space processed each of the classic Star Wars films for over 30 break-neck days to create the stunning new versions fans will see in the Star Wars Trilogy DVD set.
I would kill someone, infront of their own mother to get one of those g5's @_@.

Actually I heard that they weren't happy with the video and still wanted more time to work on it due to the fact that the earlier the work the harder it was to "upgrade" the video. Especially with A New Hope. Return of the Jedi on the other hand is supposed to look near Episode 1 quality.
