    The Apple Store is down.

    This is the time it is normaly down for product updates that are not tied to keynote speeches or press conferences.

    eMac adopts NEW architecture, FINALLY!!!!

    Actually this ISN'T "just" a speed bump, because of that.

    This means the eMac has finally dumped the of SDR PowerMac chipset it was using and probably adopted the iMac/Book DDR chipset.

    And it probably means the eMac with be a G4 for at least another 18-24 months.

    NICE! Almost as good as new PowerMacs, almost. ;)
    DDR Ram, More Hard Drive, More Power, And Cheaper, That's NICE!

    8x SuperDrive

    Most importantly it has an 8x SuperDrive.

    When do the other Macs get such a SuperDrive?

    knew it had to happen

    i knew this had to happen - my emac that i just ordered (refurb) will be getting here *today*... guess i just have to tell myself that the radeon 9200 isn't as good as the 7500 or something...

    poo.

    Jesus christ, who gives a f**k about eMac updates!!!! :mad:

    Note to Apple: We want a G5 rev. 2 (over due), for the iMac to go G5 (over due), and for the PowerBook to go to 1.42GHz G4's (Can't see them getting G5's just yet)

    Leave the eMacs, leave the iPods, and update the god damn products we all actually care about and that are in desperate need of it!!!!!

    edit: oh, and update the freakin' displays!!!

    /rant :)

    Don't sugar-coat it... how do you REALLY feel? ;)

    I know everyone's desperate for new Power Macs, and everything else to get updated. But the 8x Superdrive in eMacs means that new iMacs CAN'T be far away, which means new Power Macs are even closer!

    We hope...
