IMHO, absolutely NOT! I say a 1.25GHz iMac with a 20" display would not hurt a bit. Here's why: The number one reason is that Apple needs to appeal to PC users (switchers) and PC users (like me! ) love bang for the buck! They like to buy as powerful of a machine as they can for the least amount of money as possible. And the fact is, for most PC users, PowerMacs do not appeal to them because they are too expensive. If Apple makes a high-end iMac they will please PC users, making them happy, and make them more likely to buy the iMac, and more likely to buy a Mac period. If they don't, they are cheating PC users, and will not make their bottom line. Think of it this way: High-end iMac sales will not hurt PowerMac sales at all because it is likely that the number iMacs sold to PC users will offset any money lost on PowerMac sales. The second reason why is because the single processor 1GHz PowerMac still has support for up to 4 hard drives, two displays, and has Gigabit ethernet and the iMac couldn't even come close to this. That's just my opinion.
