C|Net reports that MorganStanley says that there may be a flat panel iMac in the not too distant future. The story is at http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1006-200-8065180.html?tag=pt.excite.cinews..ne8065180, if you're curious.<br><br>And that's true too.--Shakespeare, King Lear

There has been rumors of flat panel iMacs for ages, personally I think LCDs are still just to expensive to put into an iMac, paticually if they use similar quality LCDs to those used in other macs.<br><br>

Hmm...I notice MacMinute shows a View Sonic flat panel display for $299. today. With prices that low and the quantities Apple buys I wonder....... <br><br>128k_Mac<br>"When in doubt, reboot" - CaseCom

You're right, bdog, but I have seen flat panels at not much more than that price. Not the best quality goods, I'll admit <br><br>And that's true too.--Shakespeare, King Lear

hmph... I remember back when I was running the old iMac2Day site, even I was caught up in all of the excitement about an impending flat panel iMac... <br><br>I guess I've become a pundit of sorts....<br><br>I'll believe it after I've put my hands on it.<br><br>

It doesn't really matter as far as mac trying to be the one and only type thing- IBM has a flatpanel unit out- I think HP does too- a new shape and design and always better prices would be fine- who wants an imac if its going to be priced like a G4?<br><br>why is there a IBM deskstar in my machine?
