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!
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!
>>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?
