Didn't somebody say this was going to happen with a lot of people telling him he was dead wrong? I guess all the "delays" have made people into a bunch of uber skeptics.

1 down, 4 more to go.

These are very upgraded!

The bus is faster, too - seems like they're equals of the tower G4 in speed overall (faster in DVDs!). These really are a good buy now, for the first time in emac history. Still want a pizza box version.

UK store has not been updated yet it seems.

Btw, expect some of this:

But damn, i bought my emac 3 months ago, this is SO unfair and typical of Apple, how dare they release a brand new eMac without informing me in advance, this is out of order, the next machine i'm buying is a Hell!

Woot!

Seeing how the college I work for is now getting VERY skeptical of Dull Computer's quality, the prices and specs of these aren't too shabby, they're all in one, and the timing this week with some budgets approved means I can manage to get about 10 or more of these purchased at the EDU pricing which will is $749 and I think I'll get one Superdrive model which is $849. Hey they're no G5 but for admin people who don't NEED more power than to run Microsuck Orfice (school policy) and some other lightweight fare these MORE than fit the bill.

THANKS APPLE!!! :D

So, the eMac has a faster SuperDrive than the top-of-the-line G5 tower? This sound strange ...

Although clearly the eMac is not meant to compete with a Powerbook, I do have to say that the new eMac compared to the current lineup of Powerbooks makes you realize how outdated the PB offerings are. When I saw the new eMac specs, I had to say WOW! You are getting a nearly top of the line G4 and Superdrive for under a grand. Obviously the PB is a portable computer but the 15" is now more or less equal in performance to the eMac for goodness sake. I want a PB update pronto! Good choice for any of you who will buy this new eMac.

Is this the comeback for the G4? I mean PBs and iMacs do need an upgrade sooner than later. With all the mess with the PMs I don't expect G5 PBs and G5 iMacs before the end of the year.

Nice update Apple!
