    I heard that the xMac is $500 and is a version of the iMac only headless.

    That's interesting--where did you hear this?

    On a completely unrelated topic: do you frequently take hallucinogens?

    My thought:

    Some Core 2 Quad processor
    2 hard drive bays
    Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT standard (upgradeable to ATI Radeon 3850, 3870 and Nvidia GeForce 8800GTX/Ultra)
    Crossfire and SLi Support
    250GB Hard Drive standard
    2GB of RAM
    One Superdrive
    $1799

    Would be a gamer Mac machine.

    Yeah, because gaming is the forte of a Mac ... not to mention all the games readily available for Mac OS X ;)

    Wait a minute. Where did you hear about this?

    You said it would be a headless iMac.... But the iMac is only a head. Without the head part of an iMac there is nothing but a keyboard and a mouse.

    Think about it.

    Not justifying the rumor, headless means no built in LCD display. Form factor would be different.

    Still, I don't think Apple would release a computer that cheap. :(

    Uh... Yeah, it's called the Mac mini. And it's $599, not $500.

    The link is dead because it is from 3 years ago prior to the mac mini release.

    Let's put this rumour to sleep shall we?

    The link above is to a post that says the following:

    This 'Headless Mac' is in fact the Mac Mini and it was released 2005.

    So, there you have it.
    :p
