most consumers end up with a 15" screen.....maybe a 17"....
but most haven't had LCD screens before.....so they are now getting even more room than previously with the same measurements....
I agree, a 19" would be a bit too expensive.....plus it wouldn't make much sense to add that into a "consumer" line system.....maybe if at some point they offered a bit more beefed up iMac to cater to professionals....?
I agree with Ensign Paris, it is most likely a 17" LCD wich is closer to a 19" CRT than a 17" CRT.
I do suspect this will eventually be coming. If it is, they may be playing with it at apple as we speak. But it will come down to price point before they release it. I am shure that a 17" LCD is possible right now. But who will pay for that???
Once marketing can get a price from design and manufacturing that is low enough for consumers....then we will see it on the shelves.
what was this guy thinking
the whole concept behind the iMac was a consumer
machine that was cheap and dependable but faster and more capable for email and daily routine stuff
style was just an apple plus adding the charge for a 19" or even a 17" monitor would hike the price to even more above the already questionable price hike and would not be very profitable....except for those of us who actually know a little something about mac and can use an imac for more advanced programs....for instance i have an imac that has 1GB memory and a 15GB hard drive but is only 400 DV G3, however the rendering capabilities in final cut are similar to my friend's G4 400. Just a little slower (already takes a long time on G4) AND i spent about $1500 less on my iMac...we'll see.
