    Yep!

    Gr8!

    That is where the mysterious Radeon 9200 went into....

    BTW, the cheapest iMac is now 250 MHz slower than the cheapest eMac
    New iMac coming up too?

    One would think. Talk about excellent value. $799 (I know that's the price previously too) really should constitute a viable alternative to the low-end boxes coming out of the gateway factories. Let's hope apple can market it accordingly.

    Sure.. an update.. but it's hard to get excited over a warmed over G4 upgrade that is IMHO not that significant.

    I'm pretty damn excited
    I think it all depends on what you're looking for
    and
    for me this does it

    Faster Superdrive

    As aswitcher mentioned, it has an 8X DVD-R Superdrive... that means the whole line up will have them soon. The beginning of updates... finally.

    If they are updating hardware before a big event (WWDC) then it must mean that something big must be taking place at the event, I think it happened last year when the iMac and another model were updated so that the show could be used for the G5 :)

    Yeah, and I didn't expect that it would show up first in the LOW END machine.

    As is the powerbook, which is much sadder.

    Apple seriously needs to update those...

    I have a feeling that it is our good friends at Motorola who may be causing delays, just a guess, not like its ever happened before :D

    Too bad patience is a word that most people don't have or understand.

    Wow. I ordered mine in late November...can't help but feel a little jealous.

    ATI 9200....wow....that would actually run UT2k3 decently!

    The Ram and Processor speeds aren't such a big deal to me...but man I would love that new Video Card....

    I wonder what I can get trade-in for the 1Ghz now. ;-)
