I checked the details on the site... they say their machine is a P4 but the machine that they are comparing to the eMac is a celeron with a DVD drive. The PC has 128 Mb more RAM but the mac graphics card is 350Mhz (more than double).

They still have to make sure they have a stable system with a program that easy for consumers to use. Did you see the Windows version of iMovie? There's no competition.

Man... those windoze folk just don't get it, do they? If people want raw performance, thye'll probably buy a PC. If people want ease of use - an all round pleasant computing experience - along with a heap of better-than-anything-on-the-market multimedia apps, they'll buy a Mac.


I don't care how fast that machine is, and I don't care how many features it has. I like OS X and Apple's free iApps.

Dear Jack. That's one ugly sonbit. :rolleyes: :eek:

Of all the years the peecee world has tried to copy Apple's brightest and best innovations this gets the golden globe award for most embarassing. :p :p :p :p

As for the Windoze version of iMovie, I think I saw that on some jerky Pee4ork 2.0GHz peecee commercial advertisement, where you could make a movie in 30 seconds. What a **** load of :eek: that was, err, is.

Again, the peecee world continues to expose themselves to the world on how beligerant and embarassing they can be. The only difference this time is that it's an all-in-one. :p :D

Wait a minute, it might look ugly to you but look at some of the features it has that the iMac doesn't.

Northgate's Integra™ features a built-in sub-woofer and 5.1 channel speaker jacks as standard specifications. Users can enjoy full sound effects by the use of an X-earphone delivering 4.1 channel speaker quality sounds, or use with external speakers to deliver full 5.1 surround sound. The Integra™ comes standard with DVD, and CDR-W, and easy to use DVD software. Furthermore, Northgate's Integra is offered standard with firewire interface and four USB 2.4 ports for maximum performance in downloading video and high-speed connections to external peripherals. The Integra™ is also offered standard as a network ready, as well as Internet ready.

Enjoy live TV or DVD, and listen to great sound system including FM Radio. Capture and record TV or video files, as well as record DVDs with the optional recordable DVD player. TV feature includes remote control and support international TV standards (NTSC, PAL, SECAM).
If it uses a standard replaceable video card it may be a viable dorm computer compared to an iMac - sort of reminds me of an updated version of the black Mac.

Pretty lame stuff, sorry to see it happen. I wonder if Apple will do anything about it, or just be happy to see it die slowly......

All in none

I would buy this but it lacks the shaver socket, the tin opener, a built in ash-tray facility, a sunroof & a hook for hanging furry dice.
P.S.
I've just read around 40 posts ......'complaining' about Apple!!!

funny!

check out the poor attempt at an "Aqua" button!

reminds me of the first effects people ever learnt with photoshop - bevel, embos, drop-shadow, bish bosh look at my clever web sh|te!

Actually, just clicked on it, and surprise surprise it's a broken link on my mac browser, seems like people can get paid to make any old cr@p nowadays.

now THATS funny

a built-in subwoofer??? yea, right...where is the speaker? and how do you fit a good sized magnet for the speaker in that puppy. and if they DID figure out how to fit some sort of speaker that could move enough air to pump out sub frequencies...wouldn't the computer just vibrate off of the desk?

i guess thats a good positive spin on the reality of " our computer has a crummy speaker that has no high frequency response"...

hey, lets call it a subwoofer...:rolleyes:
