Oh good... back on its own page.
Logic board different from motherboard
Could someone expand on this topic? Apple seems inconsistent.
- In addition, Xserve G5 features dual Gigabit Ethernet on the motherboard, which, combined with the high bandwidth system controller, means you won’t get contention between your network traffic and other I/O.
- Gigabit for two: Xserve comes with dual Gigabit Ethernet on the main logic board so you can serve more clients without contention.

Seems wrong to me...
..I can't see that a Motherboard necessarily needs a BIOS. The definition seems quite wrong to me. DavidFarmbrough 07:47, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

The term "logicboard" hails back to the early Apple computers. Back then, everything was soldered onto one board. Even some of the early Mac's followed that philosophy. A logicboard IS different from a motherboard. That's why they have different names. Let's take a look at the definition of Motherboard, shall we:
motherboard |ˈməðərˌbôrd| noun Computing a printed circuit board containing the principal components of a microcomputer or other device, with connectors into which other circuit boards can be slotted.
A Logicboard is a printed circuit board that is complete with no slots for adding more circuit boards. You can't call it a "motherboard" because it does not fit the definition.
There are also definitions of a Logic Board having Logic Circuits. Probably another reason it is called a Logic Board.
Just because two things have something in common, doesn't mean that they are the same.
I mean, how often is a Hummer called an SUV? How often is an A-10 called a fighter? Wanna call an iPod video a MP3 player? Different words exist for a reason. >:O
- I agree with these points and will edit the article to reflect the differences. Cliph 23:04, 25 July 2006 (UTC)
