    Will Apple just call it a Mac?

    Seeing everythign pretty much called...

    Mac Mini
    mac pro
    Macbook
    Macbook Pro

    Hopefully in the next couple months Apple releases a new iMac (Mac) with hopefully a Penryn somehow.

    *crosses fingers*

    I know most of us read that Apple supposable redesignign the iMac, so it would make sense for them to change the name seeing nothing really from Apple has the "i" in front of it other than the iPod. Hopefully they change the name to the [​IMG]Pod :p

    I love that idea. So we'd have "The Macs", and "Thee Mac". It sounds so... sneaky!

    No! If you call it a mac and you want to say "My mac is awesome" are you refering to a mac pro, macbook/pro, mac mini, or just the "mac"... It wont work:D

    considering they've already changed to Intel (and used two different intel chips too) on the iMac surely they would have changed the name by now? As, lets be honest, the macbook pro didn't really undergo massive design change, and that still changed it's name.
    The iBook is a similar story, the design now is pretty much the same, but that still changed when it went to intel.

    Point is, both of those names changed immediately, with the change to Intel, so I would have thought that Apple would have done it by now (with the iMac) if they were going to do it.
    The iMac is the perfect name for the system it represents, its the equivalent of a 'P'ersonal("i") 'C'omputer("Mac").

    There all ready been thread about this, and basic we've come to the agreement, that having the whole line of computer having the same name as one of those computer is bad.


    Heck I here please call Apple, Mac. Like "Mac doesn't make good computers"

    There's no need to change it. And iMac fits it well...
