Apple Introduces Line of Macintosh Computers to Be Sold Only to Educators, Students

The "eMac" computers, featuring 17-inch cathode ray tube monitors and 700 gigahertz G4 processors, are priced at $999 and $1,199 -- less than the flat-panel iMacs introduced in January.

I am going back to school!

EliteWeb,

Please let me know if you can sell me a "used" one with all your "SEO warez ninja" stuff 'forgoten' in the trash can. ;)

Buying used, can mean good extras...

They need to strip it down further, it is the ideal office drone machine if the price point is right and the networking problems are sorted. They need to develop a bizMac, huge market for the taking.

Oooh... I am so tempted. If I register for a single class at UAF, I could get it for under $15/month...

Oooohhhh....

So, so VERY tempting. (Then I could requisition our CRT as an external monitor for my laptop, and get a floppy keyboard... and leave the little white pill machine on the desktop for my boyfriend. He'd be so happy. ;) )

110% agreed NFFC! Just some cheap standard beige mini-AT tower with a beige keyboard, a 6 button wheeled mouse, integrated video and 2 spare PCI slots.

Fully networkable for the average Joe, 99.99% security issues removed and twice cheaper to own and run on short term.

And there you go for some real BMac!

Six buttons?? I'm not sure about the US, but in the UK there wouldn't be a huge market for that.

But perhaps Wales...

Apple is actually listening to consumers? What a nice step since the Amelio days!

But does anyone know what sort of resolution these babies will be running on......most schools seem to be stuck on 800x600 and I welcome the new "school" that uses teh bigger res's :)

Unfortunately, I fear the eMac may turn the desklamp iMac into the next Cube... Why pay extra for the *really* funny looking one, when you can get a moderately funny-looking machine for less money, same performance?

Hush! You'll jinx it.

>>I fear the eMac may turn the desklamp iMac into the next Cube...

>>Hush! You'll jinx it.

Actually, I decode Apple (lies) in position that the eMac didn't meet sales expectations to the education channels. It was a just another attempt to revive this market with their machines at some sensitive price. It did not work. They are pushing the surplus into consumers's market as hot cakes. (wich they are)

Expect some 17" flat pannel desklamp someday to save the G4 iMac. It will save the high end consumer market.

For the time beeing, I repeat, Apple!, where is my baby AT Mac?
