No way

I would skip the first day speach, every topic sound so boring, besides, the quicktime option of the apple site doesn't work. I'm under a DSL connection and I can't get anything. Mmmm, got to work.

10.1 September?!

10.1 September?

Welp, it looks like I'll be 9.1ing it for a while (9.2?)

let's face it, 10.0.4 is unusably slow and its DHCP support is even slopier than 9.1's.

Oh well.

the 1.7Ghz Pentium 4 just got SMOKED by the G4... Apple should use this stuff in it's advertising somehow beyond the regular line chart stuff...

G4 is 80% faster...

I can't believe the imac is the same old. Too bad I own stock in the company. Watch it drop.

iMacs

What is Apple thinking.... They had to update the iMac this time. They are blowing it big time.

Its over.....

its over for me.

I can see no positive in this.

no new imacs - nothing even vaguely tempting. OSX - yet more wait....no one buys a computer now for use in 3 months, so why should us apple users.

A LAME g4 makeover - was it really much of a makeover? I was REALLy hoping those shots were fakes, but obviously not. Has Ives been on holiday?

and seriously - say what you like, but 867 mhz for what will be over 2000 uk pounds will not cut it for me. dual 800 mhz? great. but HOW much?? I have no desire for a 1 hour dvd burner - Im not sure many of us do at the moment - not unless we are secretley all home pornograhers - theres only so many holiday movies a person needs.....and for this money Id expect a gf3 not an old bargain bucket gf2.

And oh no - ANOTHER g4 v p4 demo - but this is even worse - theres not even photoshop to use! A p4 smoker? oh..purlease! :mad:

Im sorry , but AAPL has been taking tiny technological steps in the last few years - I was prepared to buy its products at a premium for its innovative design. It has a potentially GREAT OS, but its hamstrung by some truly unispiring and damned expensive kit.

Shipping Dates??????????

Arrrrrrrrrgh! My quicktime paused out right when Steve was getting ready to announce shipping dates for the new G4's -- and you haven't posted them online yet! I'm dying here --

Throw me a bone!

When is the Dual 800 shipping?

watch what you ask for..

no one really wants realistic LCD imacs...

everyone wants $999 LCD imacs. I bet if Apple released a $1700 LCD imac, people would be bitching up a storm.

Okay, so far everything has sucked to high heaven, but the keynote's not over. Steve's gotta have some kind of rabbit in his hat.
