xMac Pricing Notes:

Ideally, I would see the base Mac Mini move to just one model,
2.0ghz Core2Duo(Merom) 1GB RAM, 80GB 2.5" HD, Superdrive
$649

$799 would be the "comes with iTV" "HDTV Media Centre" "Mac iTV"

17" iMac clocks in at $999 and $1199. These are very very attractive price points, I was pricing out some Core2Duo Dells, and the only *real* advantage of the Dells were 19" monitors thrown in, but GPUs were lame, compared to the X1600 in the $1199 iMac.

The basic xMac (integrated graphics off the G97(?)5 Intel Mobo would come in at $899. 7600GT 128mb VRAM GPU xMac would come in at $999.

These are rough estimates I am currently looking at. I think Apple needs to move past the fear of cannibalising the iMacs and open up the enthusiast and mid-enterprise (now that it runs Windows) markets.

The chance of new displays is better than not. In the past people buying Apple's products has never stopped Apple renewing them, and it wont in this case, especially seen as they are the last of Apple's screens without built-in cameras.

Looks like Apple can go into 2007 with a lot of this financial uncertainty set aside. Yay!

Whoa. 9 days. Happy New Year everyone....!! (na na na na na na Australia and NewZealand will be the one of the first countries to celebrate Jan1 2007)..... Holy frack, it's 2007.

WHERE ARE THE FLYING CARS? I just saw a bit of Blade Runner again, and it's "Los Angeles 2019". Heh. They overdid things a bit. Those sort of scenes are more 2119 than 2019.

HOLY FRACK IT's 2007. WHERE ARE THE FLYING CARS? WHERE IS MY INSTA-BURGER*???

True story: When I first moved to California, I asked to meet with Syd Mead, the man responsible for the look and tech in Bladerunner. Very nice guy. He talked with me for several hours about career paths.

Cool. ... It's interesting that the flying cars were pretty "light"... Just a few floating here and there. Not dense like Futurama, Fifth Element, BackToTheFuture, Coruscant. The Tyrell building was frickin' BADASS. Ground level design elements, a sci-fi classic.

Don't forget, in the few hours before and during the keynote, use iChat: click on File, Go to Chat... and enter "Appleinsider". A chat room box will open and we can all text chat. Very nice for during mad times like keynote, rather than continuous forum posts, and AppleInsider website in general will get hammered and may be "reduced" to just one main page revealing details of keynote.

I wish I had a transcript of last years Chat...

iWork
iPlay
iSleep
iDoze
iRock

The list went on.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."
