G5 iMac


It's here! I checked the Apple website this morning and saw the new pics of the new box. Pretty sleek. An all in one monitor/CPU that is only two inches thick. 17" and 20" widescreen LCDs. 1.6 and 1.8 GHz G5's 533 and 600 MHz FSB's. 80 or 160 GB SATA HD's NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultras. Sorry, slipped into geekspeak there.

Looks pretty sweet. I can already imagine some of the interesting stuff that might come up. It is hard to have a CD/DVD drive that spins fast at a nearly vertical angle.

I am jealous of the new box, but not jealous enough to give up my trusty 15" 1st rev LCD iMac, and about $1300 - 1900.

Check it out though. Another impressive design from the gang in Cupertino.

I sure hope they got the bugs out of the slot insert cd/dvd drive this time. We have the iMac DVD which had the original insert drive. It was so bad that there was a class action law suit against Apple.

Apple lost the case and we got $40 and a new drive.
