    Hi everyone,

    Do you think you will still be able to buy an eMac by the time Tiger is eventually released? It's supposed to be released around mid summer next year isn't it?

    Tiger will of course run on an eMac

    The eMac's main role is for Education so I don't see it going anytime soon

    I'm not sure the eMac will still be around by the time tiger is released. My bet is we won't see another eMac revision.

    I am expecting a flat panel eMac under $1000 by the time Tiger comes out.
    There is a G5 Flat panel iMac today at $1,299. I can see a G5 eMac by next year with a flat panel. Perhaps crippled compared to an iMac.

    A headless and tiny inexpensive eMac G4 would be better.

    I don't know if the eMac will be around next summer, either, but there will be another Mac with a similar price come next summer. It may not be labelled an eMac, but its just a label anyway. The reason I think this is because there's now a "Made for Education Market" G5 iMac at $1099, but it's for schools. If they're making iMacs targeted at education, you may see a very crippled version of a new iMac at $799 or so. Hopefully it'll come with one of those Freescale 1.5GHz G4's used in the Powerbook. It'll be a nice step up from the 1.25GHz G4. Along with the increase in frequency, the Freescale G4's are generally faster than the older G4's that could only scale to 1.42GHz. Well, at least that's what I remember from reading...
