Not our turf.
The eMacs are pretty well laid out price/performance.
iMac may be a dead beast as there is far too much overlap
We've not seen any activity on them.
Portables rule the mid range. The 17" is real problem and we may not see a bump but rather a price drop.
Everything is bumping against the G4 limits and the G5 chip is not easily stuffed in a small box.
Price is about the only area Apple has breathing room for the moment tho a dual G4 Powerbook is not out of the question.
Remember, they get up three hours later than we do... but I guess it's not as if they wake up, read the paper, then update the site.
But maybe they'll do the Super Bowl thing again--since they've been pretty much downplaying the 20 years of Mac thing so far.
I just don't want to wait until the Grey Cup!
Believe it or not, I was having weird Apple announcement dreams (/nightmares). Something that looked like an Apple II with an iMac flat panel stuck on top.
THAT'S what I like to hear! The performance most of us NEED in relation to what we WANT is terribly subjective.
Here I sit, in front of my circa 1997 PM9600, happily doing all I need in reasonable time. Yes, the added perks of a processor upgrade and ATA hard drives has made the system quicker, but nothing compared to my office MDD 867. Yet I can't justify a big investment in current hardware for my uses. Sure, it would be grand to have a shiny, new G5 here, blazing through all my projects... but do I really need it? No.
I'm counting on my office MDD supplying all I need for 3 to 5 years. And my 3 "FrankenMacs? Until they experience major hardware failure, they still have a future.
Longevity - isn't that an integral part of what Macs are all about?
