    What you said made no sence. First of all there is no 15" iMac G5. Second of all there has never been 128Mb of VRAM for any iMac ever made. And Lastly We only know that there is likely to be an update in the next 1 - 100 days or so, but nobody knows for sure if they did it would be all over the place.

    iMac G5 comes in 17" and 20". No 15" there :) and the video ram is 64 :(

    Although the only problem i see with the video card being upgraded is the Powermac. The Powermac's lowest Video ram is 64 MB. iMacs are meant to be for casual users, not for hardcore video stuff or graphics. My take is that they'll upgrade the powermac before the iMac G5's videocard.

    If you are worried about the video card you could probably buy the low end Powermac (Single 1.8 G5) and a cheap moniter. the video card could be upgraded to match your likings. and as time progresses you could add ram and maybe buy a Apple moniter ;)

    Course we have no idea really. Not until the words "New iMac G5" are spread across the front of apples web site than will we know for sure :eek:
