Without shedding any insight as to our sources... imo, a flat panel iMac doesn't make too much sense. Yes, it would be very eye-catching, no doubt, and would let Apple totally re-invent the system, but the flat panel has got to cost Apple several times more than a CRT... that means making performance sacrifices somewhere, and reducing margins. <br><br>Personally, I'd rather see a 15" or 17" CRT iMac with more RAM, a larger HD, and a better video card (GeForce2 or RADEON) than a spiffy slender iMac, wouldn't you?<br><br>
