$1,200 - $1,500 depending on memory.<br><br>a tad expensive if you ask me. flat screen monitor is nice, but...i don't see this selling very well beyond education.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>

I think that is the point, you can only buy it if you are in education, like the old G3 all in one.<br><br>“Here can be found the last words of Joseph of Arimathea.

well, i thought NTO1 was asking when it would go beyond education. i guess i interpreted his post incorrectly.<br><br>also, i now see that it is priced $999 - $1,200. hmmm. perhaps i remembered incorrectly the first time i posted???<br><br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
You know what's weird? (This is an aside.) I've been visiting some forums that aren't Mac related, and no matter what I seem to post, I get people coming back as if I've said something else entirely. Then, when I accurately quote them, they say I didn't say that, despite my including the quote.<br><br>It's led to a few days of frustrating forum visits. That hasn't happened here, but when I hear you (Sean) doubt my simple, clear words I fear whatever confuso virus I have is spreading like wildfire.<br><br>Yes, I clearly stated a question asking how quickly this eMac might go consumer.<br><br>(Fearin Sean's response will be: Christ, if you don't like Jehovah's Witnesses, why didn't you just come out and say so?!?)<br><br>:-)<br><br><br>Do you rhumba? Excellent! Now pick a rhumba and sit down.. GM
This wont go to the consumer market. Apple only has this product to satisfy schools that need a cheaper computer then the current iMac. This way they don't need a huge inventory of them in stock.<br><br>Ryan
well, i was thinking of giving my website a makeover, but i also want to edit a bunch of home movies i haven't had time to play with so that i can create a DVD. decisions, decisions.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
too bad if this eMac stays completely educational as I'd actually love to have one to upgrade from this old iMac Rev/A... I don't need edgy speed, and I don't need a DVD drive... I also don't need to pay for a flat screen monitor, if I have my druthers... heck, at $1000, I can see buying two for the house... one for my home office and one for the upstairs landing for guests and the wife...<br><br>with firewire I can add on the various peripherals I might want at certain times, but haven't had to pay for the priciness of a damned tower or a flatscreen...<br><br>If apple open's it up they'll find that the FP iMac isn't what people want as much as a cheap computer (read sub $1000).<br><br>John<br><br><br>'Contrariwise', continued Tweedledee, 'If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't.
