Apples pricing is outrageous and rediculous! No one and I mean No one will buy what they have to offer now! I've been a mac freak for years now.. I've got $1550 cool ones in my pocket from my dual 450. And the low end G4 800 MHZ starts at $1,599. FORGET IT! Excuse me if my comments are not kosher with the rest of you but really, the low end doesnt even have a fricken DVD Rom. just a rediculous cdrw and only 40GB Hd. And they want almost $4,000 for their highest ULTIMATE machine. Sorry, Im thinking of changing over to the Dark Side. It was just over a year ago, when I spent close to $4,000 and boy was I a dummy. In just a year it went down to 1/3 of the original price. I know computers are not an investment. But hey I bought my Saturn for $2000 more than the last computer. I think Apple is straightening out my priorities. Guess Im not young, and dumb and full of cash for Apple. Apple, this is not the time to come out with a $4,000 machine. Kudos to you on your imacs, they are stupendous and fabulous! For the same price as the midrange imac you get more then the low end 800MHz entry G4 tower. Sorry Apple -- Ciao for now!
