I'm not too fond of .mac though, looks like I'll have to find another website carrier.

What made it for me was the Will Ferrell "porn actor" switch ad. :D

iTunes 3 is cool, but the only feature I really needed was the Sound Check.

I am totally looking forward to the new Mail, Sherlock, and Address Book, as well as the new iPod firmware.

The rest was okay (minus .MAC) but not that important for me.

new 17" iMac res is cool!!

i'm stoked that they made the new 17" a 1440x900 res. i love the widescreens. that would be the biggest thing stopping me from getting a PC laptop, i love the TiBooks widescreen!!!!

and 10.2 is cool. and i get it for, what was it? $49? i've got those software update coupons, he he.;)

cb11,

i also like the 17 inch imac and i didn't think apple had it ready yet

for a consumer level user like me, the 17 inch imac is good news and one more step in making the consumer level machines seem more like professional machines

i feel bad for the pro users who expected 1.4 ghz g4 towers of whom many of them would have been dissed if apple came out with just 1.2 ghz

but in the end, apple did not come out with anything on the pro line and new york would have been the best time to announce it, even if they would not be ready until september

when the original ibook came out, people were expecting a consumer portable, so sj announced it in july, and they shipped in september

while the wait may have been difficult, i don't think it hurt the product

if the new g4 towers are really only a few weeks away, then why did apple hold off the announcement

perhaps apple will announce in september/october and have a new 1.4 ready for christmas...better late than never

i am now convinced that there will be no g5 pro tower this year or g4 ibook (but the latter is slightly more likely)

Bingo. EXACTLY. Why demo Jaguar that doesn't come out until August and NOT demo the "new" PowerMacs that everyone has been waiting for? This leads me to believe there's nothing but a slight speed bump next go around. I think Apple is much further behind than anyone cares to admit.

Remember how pissed off apple was at all of the rumor sites a week ago??? All these sites really do is get our hopes up... a lot of the things we hear about have no validity what-so-ever. Apple knows this, and hates to have it's most dire fans upset (c'mon, why would they want to piss us off?) I guess what I'm saying is that Apple will not let us down - have they since '96? I surely don't think so. They are the most inovative computer company in the world. Just look at how awsome their current line-up is...


the only consumer computer in the world with a standard LCD flat-screen and superdrive, the iPod (everyone wants one), xServe (the most amazing server released by any company in the past 3 years), a 23in HD Cinema display, the pro line isn't too shabby either (dual 1ghz G4's aren't exactly slow), the coolest portable computers on the planet (12in ibook, and 800mhz G4 widescreen powerbook).... not to mention the best operating system known to man. c'mon people ..... Apple still rulz!

I think apple wants to bring back the element of suprise it used to have a while back... MWNY was just a teaser, I think in the next few months Apple will suprise us all with something BIG. Apple has been buying up small companies every-other week, or so it seems... why? <- obviously for some reason. A graphics company, a software company, a pro audio company, (i know there are a few more ...)

Over the past few months, Apple has been attempting to CONVERT people... people that are only used to spending around $700 - $1700 on a computer, so MWNY was like the climax of this movement in a sense. A new suped up iMac 17in flat pannel, with a gForce 4, superdrive, 80 gig HD, 1.5 gig ram, 800mhz G4, and a slew of new iApps, coupled with a 20 gig iPod (w/ Remote) everything a NEW mac user needs...

The pro mac user is next..... Don't worry everyone... it'll all be ok in a few months. Apple will anounce something when we least expect it.

Jaguar and 17" iMac

Jaguar looks great and the price doesn't bother me because it'll be on the new systems when I'm ready to buy. I really like the 17" widescreen on the iMac. The 15" screen was just a little too small, but the 17" is awesome.

i hope apple has something down the pike

they still have the greatest gear all the way around

they just need to pump up bus speeds and processor speeds and i am sure that will help them sell a lot more units

i buy based on features, but many consumers look at the cpu speed too much so apple has to cater to the greater buying public

i have no doubt that apple's dual 1 ghz machine can whip a 2 ghz pc, but how about a 2.53 ghz pc? maybe and maybe not...but try convincing the average consumer of that

my fave thing bout it was probably the ipod (even tho it doesnt seem like the 5 gig ipods cheaper if they did lower that price)
and how theyre gonna charge $100 for .mac :( jk, nah probably jag
