I really think pulling the eMac was a bad idea. $499 with no monitor, keyboard, or mouse to $1299 for an iMac with 160GB hard drive and iSight is a big jump for some people. The eMac was great for people who wanted a simple, Internet appliance with having to buy extra stuff.kparvez said:That's too bad.
Yea, and then you plug in a USB keyboard and USB mouse, and voila....no more USB ports....that is brilliant.deanwaterman said:
except that the eMac has a faster HD, more video ram and a better card, more memory expandability...deanwaterman said:
Where is the core video on the mini? The hard drive on the mini sucks compared to the emac too. Plus the monitor, keyboard, ....deanwaterman said:
Really? The eMac smokes the Mac mini in several ways.deanwaterman said:
Which is where it should be, and if they stopped making it Dull chumputers would make HUGE inroads into many SUNY colleges, which is where I work. The eMac keeps a foot in the door, the Mac Mini is all but worthless to higher ed as the all-in-one is compelling and the iMac is still too expensive and flat panel screens get touched/cracked/broken by fat fingered kids.gopher said:
The eMac ISN'T for you, and you clearly don't get what segment it sells to, and sells well may I add (in the thousands of orders a year), colleges and schools. Sales = money and marketshare they wouldn't have, money = good for Apple, marketshare = critical for Apple. Just because in your tiny narrow little live-in-your-parents basement world YOU don't like the eMac, many do and it's a critical seller for Apple, so get a clue, or step off.deadwaterman said:
