[quote]Originally posted by cdhostage: I thought it strange that Apple advertised tje iMac as hacing ao 1 GB limit and then even as a BTO doesn;'t offer anything higher than 768.
I fail to see the problem. Having Apple bump the DIMM on the 800 from 256 to 512 (single-chip option) costs an extra $200, while a 512mHz SO-DIMMs are going for $150. Even if Apple offered a full gig BTO, how much would they want for that second 512? 300? ...
[quote]Originally posted by pscates: Doesn't look too weird, I guess. And with the monitor now not being tied to the actual case design like the previous iMac, I'm officially going on record in my belief that by this time next year, Apple WILL unveil a 17" version of the iMac.
Almost certainly will NOT happen - it's less likely now than it was, in fact. Reason? THE ENTIRE MACHINE would require re-engineering. The difference in...
[quote]Originally posted by Moogs ™: The next basic shape that came to mind was the triangle (pyramid if you're talking three dimensions)...the only problem would be that if you want all the firewire ports and such to extend from the "back side", then by definition the front of the machine would be the edge shared by the other two sides.
You're thinking trapezoid (4-sided solid: 3 triangles around a triangular base); a pyramid is 4...
So, does anyone know if the Superdrive can be used to watch DVDs as well as burn them? I don't have any, but I might want to get some And on the subject of value: how does the new iMac stack up for speed / responsiveness? I'm thinking that w/ the 100mHz bus & all, the 800mHz iMac might perform about on the level of the 733 PM. Anyone care to hazard a guess? We don't have an Apple Store anywhere around here, so I can't really explore this directly....
[quote]Originally posted by EmAn: You're right, Steve did say 5. He was probably talking about the 3 on the iMac and 2 on the keyboard.
Yes.
well I'm just torn to bits, I must say. I bought my 266 PBG3 because of the nice, big, bright screen; at the time, the cheapest Apple alternative was a full $1000 more. I've loved it...but it can't keep up with what I'm moving into. So here comes the new iMac - that big, beautiful screen, AND a G4 - last year's baddest & fastest for half-price is awfully attractive, and I really want to do it. But there's that 14" iBook...what I've got now, only faster, lighter,...

Good questions (no answers from me, sorry). I have the strangest feeling that "lamp ramping" will catch on fast, as people think up ways to decorate their new iMacs....
[quote]Originally posted by spindler: According to the Time Canada article Apple will sell $50,000,000 worth of iPods. Divide by $400 and that 125,000 units. Is 125,000 units a lot in one quarter?
It's pretty good, but the news is better than you think: iPod debuted in stores on what, Nov. 10? From then to the end of the year is 50 days(not counting xmas). 125,000 in 50 days amounts to 228,000/quarter, or close to 1,000,000 units per year.
[quote]Originally posted by BuonRotto: ... Allow me to complete the thought: "Apple lied! They have singled me out in all the world and they have hurt me personally because I invest too much emotion and faith into dumb computers! I will never buy an Apple again and will spend the rest of my days trolling these boards with snide one-line disparagements of Apple and Apple users. " How was that? ...
