I totally agree with everyone talking about how the new iMac invades and cannibalizes the PowerMac line up. This makes so much sense to me that it seems almost impossible to turn out in any other way. After you read, I think you will agree. Bear with me: In the past and in the present, there are always 3-4 different base PowerMacs. Suppose that the base power mac for the first term is 500MHZ, and the high lever power mac is 700MHz. When the next speed bump arrives, all original models, except the high end, are eliminated. At the next revision, 700MHz becomes the low end, and resumes the price point that the prior 500MHz occupied, and the new 900MHz will replace the 700MHz's old price point, ect. It has been this marketing strategy used for some time by Apple, and it is because of this that I forsee either a longer than expected delay on shipment of g5's or a dramatic price change all across the line. IF the new G5's were to debut at MW Tokyo, then the new iMacs will have either only enjoyed two months at their high price point, or the PowerMacs will all increase dramatically in price. Theoretically, if the G5's are announced at MW Tokyo, then for it to follow Apples old pricing scheme, then the bottom end model would be cheaper than todays iMac, and come it at $1699 US. (Where as the iMac falls into place at $1799 US). This either means that the new iMacs will have a $200-500 price cut each across the line; or that the new low end PowerMac G5's will be increase $500 across the line, so the bottom end will fall into $2199 US. I tentitivley lean towards the increase in the PowerMac price, as it will be to soon to make such a durastic price reduction in the iMac. ( it is also possible that there will be a marginal price cut to the imacs, and this would allow for a less durastic increase in PowerMac prices.) Any thoughts?
