My family very happily uses our iMac 600 about eight hours per day for: the internet, word processing, MSN Messenger and Quicken. In other words, about what 90% of all computer users do. Plus iTunes and iPhoto work beautifully. Just one thing - the 600 is a bit sluggish, though really, no one complains. Now, with the new iMac starting at $1400, it looks like the old model will hang around for some time. I think that by MWSF we will see the G3 at 1 ghz, and if you made the CRT 17 inches and sold it for $999 I believe Apple would sell 500,000+ "old iMacs" per year without interfering with sales of flat panel iMac, since it would be competing in a completely different market. And Apple needs to have something in the $999 range since Steve is intent on converting PC users. What do you think? Will we see the CRT iMac in a faster, bigger mode?
