New PowerMacs and 20" LCD

New PowerMacs and a 20" LCD has been released by Apple. Previous rumors were remarkably accurate.

The new PowerMac tops out at Dual 1.42GHz, and all the PowerMacs have been bumped to Firewire 800. The current Low-End model is 1GHz at $1499.

A new 20" LCD has also been introduced at 1680x1050 resolution... for $1299.

iMacs appear not to have been updated, but are still expected shortly.

Wow, that's a nice price for the 20" LCD, very cool. Now if when they upgrade the PowerMacs with the IBM 970 I'll get a pair of them.

Sweet. Compared to the 23" lcd, I think that's a pretty good price for the 20". I'm disappointed that they haven't changed the enclosure though.

holy crap! That's cool!

I just realized something. These are probably the last PowerMacs that will ever have G4's. The G4 era is coming to an end (although they'll still live in consumer computers.)

I think I might shed a tear...

or not...

Well, I think we all know what's coming this fall!

Looks like they're still selling MacOS 9 enabled Powermacs.

Fantastic!

Fantastic value! Me want! Apple is off to quite a good start this year!

...and this on the new PowerMacs;

"The new SuperDrive writes DVD-R discs at 4x " Nice!

...also

"The DVI to ADC Adapter...And it’s now just $99."

Very, very nice.

this monitor is just what apple needed. this will get us back in the game, i cant wait to call my customers and that means my dual ghz goes back in the box and i get a new dual 1.25. one thing i noticed is the dual 1.25 doesnt have a superdrive, probably a smart move because it will convince people to go with the higher end one of get a new imac when it comes out. all i can say is i cant wait till i get that new monitor.

Amazingly good pricing. That new dual 1ghz is a nice value. *pets his dual 867*

I no longer have a new mac, aww, lol.

Ah well.. I'm selling it to get a 970 in a year anyway. ;-)

Very good pricing on the monitors too. Personally, I got a 21" Sony flatscreen CRT for $550, and I'm very happy.

iMacs to Follow

Now that the Pro product has been upgraded all around, I suspect the Consumer stuff will follow, possibly as early as next Tuesday (Feb. 3).

Wow!!!!!

The new screens are more exciting than the 12" PowerBook for me! (not quite as exciting as the 17" )

I can't believe the prices of these when I think about the 22's original cost was like $4000! We've come a long way I guess.

23 Cinema looks affordable enough now! And I think the 20" will sell pretty well for graphic pros.

And yeah, I think they should have changed the case design too. Apple should say good-bye to that clear platic. I hate them! They get scrachy and dirty real easily...

This is just becoming a joke...

I like to keep a track of the way that apple moves and I think its great that they do all this upgrading but when I get a new machine I might aswell get a pc. I have just bought a dual 1ghz and am pretty pissed off at the fact if I had waited until now then I could have got a dual 1.25 for the same price.. Or if I didn't get the dual 1.25 now just wait till August to get a dual 1.42 for the same price.. This never used to be like apple... If you buy an apple it usually keeps its value but the way thing are going it seems that apple may and possibly will lose alot of sales to pc's unless they make their prices as cheap as them and as cheap to upgrade. Anyone agree?

17" display Now only $699

For a top end PowerMac plus 23" screen, the price has dropped over $2000.

The Dual 1.43 machines have a "4-6 week leadtime". I guess I'll find out how it is when it shows up. (Yes, I just ordered one.)
