First it's eMacs and not EMacs.themacman said:what is going with the emacs, they ahve not been updated for years, and we havent sseen any rumors about them. does anyone think apple will stop selling them. We got to hear someting soon.
And followed by someone to make wisecracks about all that. At least in most cases, the person does get pointed to a relevant thread that talks about their issue, question or idiocy.Raven VII said:Here's a great summation of the typical MacRumors thread: the scolding about the misspelling of the (whatever)Mac, the whining about how there's another thread dealing with the same thing and people making ignorant remarks.
Bravo, everyone, bravo!
I was exagerationg by years, i ment a long time, and sorry about the typing. I understand about the chipset/ architecture its just that i was wondering when their going to be updated.Sun Baked said:That's BS, and you obviously don't know jack about them, they got a whole new chipset/architecture 4/2004 (from a SDR PowerMac chipset to a DDR iBook/PowerBook chipset).
The only thing that didn't change was the look of the machine, and with the iMac G5 now looking like the eMac, we can all see why.
Actually the securing cables aren't as secure as most people would like to believe. The eMacs don't cost the school as much as it would cost you to get one. And monitors have a limited useful life, so getting a new eMac every few years is actually not a bad plan.Dont Hurt Me said:Mini can do anything eMac can and its easier to secure. 1 cabinet holds the mini's and cables to monitors plus it allows schools to use monitors they own or can budget for. This allows way more versatility then all in one eMac. Now anyone can get into the Mac world for very small cost. Plus they dont have to play the all in one game anymore meaning what do i do with my monitor? Think of Crt's and where they are going.
Not to knock on the security on the mini.... But what would i go for?Dont Hurt Me said:Mini can do anything eMac can and its easier to secure. 1 cabinet holds the mini's and cables to monitors plus it allows schools to use monitors they own or can budget for.

And properly ventilated? And what happens when cables get pulled loose? And you would need several locked cabinets or a ton of extension cables. The extension cables would add to the problem of things getting disconnected.Dont Hurt Me said:Lock the mini in a cabinet thats bullet proof and break in proof for the you's of the world.
You miss the fact that Apple has gone longe rthan 9 months between updates on some products.Dont Hurt Me said:Hey if they were going to release another eMac or Bump it up they would have done so. its past 9 months. Mini is replacing it and its pretty easy to take a bunch of these and secure them. Plus it allows for so many different configurations with the ability to work with Lcds,Crts and Tvs. Crts get hot and hot crts and cpu's dont get along well. The shipping dept at Apple must have had a big party after learning they wouldnt have to deal with crts anymore. I bet Apple will still be selling eMac for months.
lol tell that to the school districts in my areaBear said:The eMac still has uses that the Mini cannot cover. That being in the education market.
