With all the recent buzz around the Mac Mini & iPod Shuffle, it's becoming obvious that Apple's overall strategy has become more aggressive & expansionist particularly at lower price points. The original iMac was a great and iconic computer for its time and millions were sold. I have 3 friends that still have one and use it for day-to-day stuff like word-processing, email and web, stuff that 90% of people use 90% of the time... and these little machines are still perfect for these tasks. The original iMac also had this funky little attitude of being the Mac for everyone... the embodiment of the original Apple philosophy. However, when they have considered replacing their iMacs it's certainly not with another iMac because of their price. It's usually an eMac or perhaps it's the Mini for those who have heard of it... or even a PC. Perhaps the success of the eMac (originally intended for the education market) took Apple by surprise but the following generations of iMacs have been less enthusiastically embraced by the general public, possibly not helped by the stunning lack of a persuasive and seductive advertising campaign. Is the iMac now an over-engineered white elephant ahead of its time and uneasily positioned between the low-end 'pro' lines, eMac and Mini? Are we starting to see a repetition of the early 90's when Apple produced too many product lines with confusing configurations? Is the iMac's appeal diluted by the Mini Mac? What future do you think the iMac has?
