    new eMacs (1.42GHz) and iMacs as expected (2.0GHz)

    the eMacs now have a proper graphics card so they'll do the ripple-dashboard effect and stuff.

    iMacs have built in bluetooth 2.0 and airport too, which is well generous

    interestingly, the usa store says the new eMacs are dual layer (superdrive) and the UK store does not

    no iSight Buy One Get One Free lol

    Damn! Nice stuff! I just bought my iMac 20" with bluetooth back in early March and now I'm feeling like I made a big mistake not waiting for this update.

    Is bluetooth 2.0 new? Do I have bluetooth 1.0? What is the advantage?

    Could someone kindly list as to all of the differences in the new 20" vesus the 20" I have? Man on man I really wish Apple could come out with a DIY video install kit that would bump the graphics in mine from 64mb to 128mb.

    What do you guys think? Should I try and sell my iMac and buy the new one?

    Double-Layer SuperDrive :eek:
    Built in AirPort Extreme :eek:
    Mac OS X Tiger :eek:
    512MB Memory Standard :eek:
    2Ghz :eek:
    ATI Radeon 9600 128MB :eek: & :eek:
    250GB HD :eek
    New Box Design and Mouse & Keyboard Included :eek

    Man this makes my iMac which I thought kicked ass... obsolete. Well in a way.

    I spent almost $2300 on my iMac when I could have spent $1800 now for one even better. So I look at it, I blew $500 and have a machine that isn't as good. :(

    I'm going to go have a little cry now. :p

    Seriously though, this sucks. - for me.

    Thanks for the positive feedback. What computer do you have?

    My job could possibly be bringing in an unexpected $3,000 within the next couple of months. Mabye I will invest $2,000 of that in the new iMac! Right now I have a PC on the other half of my desk. I could rip that sucker out of there and put another iMac in it's place! Two 20-inch iMacs on one desk, heh.

    It just might be possible. Although, what would I do with two other than the "coolness" of it? Haha.

    It's on their site. Go to their home page and click on the box for the iMac and in there you will find a picture of the box.

    What do you guys think? Should I blow my bonus on a new iMac 20" 2Ghz which then I would have two 20" iMacs on my desk or should I wait until the next iMac revision which would be a G6 processor or Mac OS X 10.5?

    just wait. you're machine is awesome. if u really want to play halo, buy a used xbox. your mac does everything u ever need it to do and more.

    plus halo and halo 2 are the most overrated games ive ever played, owned, and finished with. halo 2 xbox is hot, but the games are crap
