    damn, now the store is offline again

    i guess i checked at just the right time. i went back again to see if any new pics were there and the "we'll be back soon" post it note was there.

    I guess someone forgot to put in place the redirection for a moment.

    Anyway the specs are pretty much what was expected (i wish id taken a screengrab now)

    1ghz and 1.25ghz G4s.
    DDR2700 RAM
    internal bluetooth
    airport extreme
    USB2
    no firewire 800
    GF4MX or GFFX5200 graphics cards

    not sure if the pricing was different, cause i've never looked at UK pricing before. (i'm from australia)

    did anyone else see this?

    i think the cinematic graphics refers to them using the Geforce FX card. It has the "CineFX" engine. Although i dont know how much cinematic quality effects you get out of the bottom of the line GFFX.

    heres Nvidias blurb on the cinematic graphics

    Dont have it man, but if i did no one would believe me. I got this images soon but no one believed me. I got the iPods first and i was able to see their specs, 10Gb/20/40. They have highlighted "New iPod Dock", but i dont see any reference to that.

    Well, Apple caught on.

    Someone really dropped the ball AGAIN this time, and he's going to get a kick in the balls from Apple, too.

    I guess the guy who screwed up with the G5s got a break because Steve got a joke out of it, but this time, he's gone.

    Damn...same price for a 40gb as what I paid for my 30gb a couple weeks ago. Oh well, that's what happens.

    yeah, I know...I was just checking again.

    Funny, I could have sworn that all those posts about iMacs, etc., didn't exist before, but they seem to have come before my posts. And therefore, my posts look silly and redundant.

    That's odd.

    Anyway, the top level iMac is overpriced.

    $2450
    17-inch widescreen LCD
    1.25GHz PowerPC G4
    NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra
    64MB DDR video memory
    1GB DDR333 SDRAM
    160GB Ultra ATA hard drive
    10/100BASE-T Ethernet
    56K V.92 internal modem
    Apple Pro Speakers
    AirPort Extreme built-in
    Bluetooth built-in

    You would be MUCH better off getting a G5. You could get a FASTER, 1.6 GHz G5 for the same price (including a monitor, though not an Apple monitor).
