    Anyone else get the...

    ...feeling that this was just a "we gotta release *something* new" move on Apple's part, to deflect attention from the otherwise-dry-until-WWDC updated product pipeline?

    That's a nice deal...

    If you go to and spec out a crappy Dell to match the basic specs, it comes out to $1,023.

    Given the choice, between a Crappy Dell for $1,023 or a decent G4 for $800 - which would you take?

    re : Meh

    I'm hoping for a 15"PB update. I can still wait a couple of weeks, but it looks like I'm gonna end up with the Rev A

    Looks like a good deal

    Except for the fact you are locked into that monitor. Give me a flat mac with the same specs for $600.

    RE: That's a nice deal..

    jbeek: I actually got a crappy Dell with a 2 GHZ Celeron and monitor for under a thousand, and it is indeed the biggest POS I have ever used. It is unbelievably slow. The specs look ok, and the price was good, but the performance is about on par with my 5 year old Blue and White G3.

    nothing wrong w/ monitor

    all these complaints about the monitor...who honestly hooks up a 19" at home running 1600x1200? most people work at 1024x768 or 1280x1024 which is within the specs of the emac.

    the only thing missing is the OPTION of running a flat panel (buy an iMac)

    for the intended market it's a great deal and it's got MORE than enough power to work well..

    I use an upgrade G4/1.2 tower w/ 17" monitor...this is a BARGAIN in comparison...

    8x SuperDrive!!!

    I check the specs and the updated 1.25GHz eMac has a speed bumped SuperDrive!

    The DVD-r writing is now done at 8x - thats up from 4x in the last version!

    Its pretty certain that when the G5s are refreshed, they will also sport these new faster SuperDrives.

    Great Timing!

    We just priced out a huge 250+ eMac order for our school, and this revision allows us to get BETTER machines for LESS money. Go Apple!
