AppleInsider rumor.

This is pretty cool. I hope Apple does come out with an LCD based eMac.

For those of you who can't be bothered to read the link, Apple is rumored to be developing an eMac in the iMac enclosure.

This sounds like nothing more than a sub $1000 iMac with integrated Intel graphics. I really wish Apple would release an affordable tower for us average folk. There is a massive hole in the Apple lineup between the Mac mini and the Power Mac for those of us that would never consider buying all-in-one desktop computer. I would rather see them release an entry-level Mac Pro for like $1200. Forget the school kids! Laughing

It is likely they will have a low-end Mac Pro tower that starts at 1299 or something, just to have that G5 look with less power, or something.

You never know what Apple is up to.

I think it is premature to complain about the lineup. Wait till the Intel transition is complete.

True.

I myself am more interested in seeing what the new PowerMacs will offer. I'm hoping for a model with a low price point.

Don't forget those school kids. Exposing children to Macs today is the best way to insure a steady flow of Mac users tomorrow. Get them hooked early I say!

Only problem with this philosophy is one of Apple's target audiences: college kids. Seriously. Visit any non-conservative, left-wing-ish college, and the ratio of Apple to IBM laptops is much closer to 50/50 than you might surmise. Same goes for desktops. Maybe it's because college kids (and the rest of us in that age-group that haven't necessarily gone to college yet Very Happy ) are more open minded, and when they see how much simpler and more powerful the Mac system is, they'll stick with it.

Anyways, long story short, school kids are one of Apple's primary targets, because if they can win them over, they'll be loyal for life.

I would like a $1200 Mac Pro though. Cool I'd stretch the student loan for that.
