Anyone notice this?

When did it happen?

I think this is a great value. 1999 for a Superdrive, G4 equipped machine.

It's got me thinking.

I was going to pick up a classic iMac and put a slot loading CD-RW in there and use it as an iTunes machine, but the eMac just screams value.

Anyone know if they have cleared up the reliability issues?

Yes, they have cleared up the earlier screen issues.

I am running an 800MHz eMac with SuperDrive and this machine is freakin' awesome (and mine cost more than they do now)!!!


Do not hesitate to purchase these machines...they are truly worth the value! :D

It happened last Tuesday as noted in this article (the last line):

"Apple’s Spring line of iMac computers features a new 1 GHz 17-inch widescreen model with 133 MHz system bus; 256MB Double Data Rate memory; 4x SuperDrive and support for AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth, for just $1,799 (US). The new 800 MHz 15-inch flat panel model is priced at just $1,299 (US) — $200 less than its predecessor. Apple also announced lower pricing on eMac consumer and education computers. [Feb 4]"

The recently discontinued iMac's have me thinking. 800 MHz, 17" Widescreen, Superdrive. I've seen them go for $2299 since the new version was announced.

I bet they go a cheaper once the new ones hit the shelves. $2100 would be my guess.
