    that's great! i was just thinking, Disney should be more involved in the daily lives of our nation's children! I hope it's programmed to sell the kids Disney merchandise, perhaps McDonalds can get some advertising in too...

    Like or or not, those things will sell like hotcakes. Sad, because you can get an eMac for less ($800 vs $900). Perhaps I'll start a business of buying eMacs, painting them, adding $2 "ears", and selling them. :rolleyes:

    The monitor with its Mickey Mouse ears reminds me of those cardboard faceplates we used to stick on monitors at school to brighten them up.

    I always thought PC's were a bit 'Mickey Mouse'.

    ... Sorry could not resist that one!

    I hope that's what the G5 iMac looks like. I'll order 20!

    What a ghastly looking PC. Looks like the product of a bunch of suits in a board meeting.

    It's too bad that instead of Dalmatian and Flower Power iMacs, we can't get Toy Story, Bug's Life, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, and Incredibles iMacs.

    It might look Purdy, and be good for playing Pong-oh, but it would run like a dog or an old Cadillac DeVille.
