    I was told by a reliable source, that there will be a 19" LCD on the iMac in the near future.

    Definitely not in "near future". Way too expensive!

    More likely 17" LCD (= to CRT19" I have been told)

    but still doubt full

    i doubt it...putting in a 19" lcd would cannabilize the market for a low-end PowerMac G4 and the $1000 17" studio display...

    where the love
    it wouldn't look so good
    and if you really needed the big screen
    your probably a pro user not an "i" user

    who needs a 19" lcd in the consumer side of the market?

    unless lcds fall in price, the 19" lcd is more suited for pro users

    the current imac is ok for smaller pro end stuff already

    most consumers end up with a 15" screen.....maybe a 17"....

    but most haven't had LCD screens before.....so they are now getting even more room than previously with the same measurements....

    I agree, a 19" would be a bit too expensive.....plus it wouldn't make much sense to add that into a "consumer" line system.....maybe if at some point they offered a bit more beefed up iMac to cater to professionals....?

    I agree with Ensign Paris, it is most likely a 17" LCD wich is closer to a 19" CRT than a 17" CRT.

    I do suspect this will eventually be coming. If it is, they may be playing with it at apple as we speak. But it will come down to price point before they release it. I am shure that a 17" LCD is possible right now. But who will pay for that???

    Once marketing can get a price from design and manufacturing that is low enough for consumers....then we will see it on the shelves.

    Maybe it will come as a BTO.

    No way (unfortunatly)

    19" far too expensive for average buyer (even Mac buyer)

    Imac deliveries are going to be damned slow. ligth upgrade in NY (Bus, cache, speed)

    So let's get along with it and enjoys it !:p

    not an iMac... But something else!

    19"? Where do you get your info from...

    WAIT!! Remember when there were all those rumors about bigger CRT iMac's in the works? Instead, we saw CRT monitors shaped like the iMac. Hmmmm....

    Is apple making swivel mounted LCD displays???? Now that's a credible rumor...

    what was this guy thinking
    the whole concept behind the iMac was a consumer
    machine that was cheap and dependable but faster and more capable for email and daily routine stuff
    style was just an apple plus adding the charge for a 19" or even a 17" monitor would hike the price to even more above the already questionable price hike and would not be very profitable....except for those of us who actually know a little something about mac and can use an imac for more advanced programs....for instance i have an imac that has 1GB memory and a 15GB hard drive but is only 400 DV G3, however the rendering capabilities in final cut are similar to my friend's G4 400. Just a little slower (already takes a long time on G4) AND i spent about $1500 less on my iMac...we'll see.

    just not

    just not going to happen for a long time. Too expensive and the new iMacs are well... NEW. Just too soon. LCD's cost too much and are a relitively new technology for consumers.
