    At least they kept a low end CD-W option as opposed to all Superdrives.



    I'd say the 933 or the low end dual is the best "deal". Interesting... Apple usually tries to hit a 2499-2599 price point.



    It will be interesting to see if :

    A) these sell well.

    B) Apple actually puts them on the home page. (it still has the new iMac.)

    Well, I can't see how they would sell any worse than the ones that selling last week...

    "I'll select door number 2, Bob."



    Man this is so cool. I am a bit perplexed that the low-end model has no Superdrive, but that's okay.



    EDIT: The 933MHz model can be had for $2,067.00 with the education discount and using a Radeon card instead of the Dual display Nvidia card.

    Funny, the 'Crystal Clear' promo is still on the Apple site. I wonder if it applies to the updated Power Macs.
  • Reply 8 of 21
    interesting. They DO have the 800MHz at a lower price point than the 800MHz iMac, but no Superdrive or screen. I priced something close to the iMac, and it came out to 2600, and that was with a 15" monitor and without a superdrive (combo drive)



    Ah well, I guess I'll keep my order for the iMac.

    The dual 1GHz is on OK deal and the 933 is a tad pricey but I can see the logic. But the 800 is too expensive for that considering the iMac has specs that beat it (Superdrive and LCD). The maximum I would pay for that machine would be $1399. At that price I would consider replacing my 466.

    they look like great specs!!! I can not wait to get one!!!

    hmmmm.....



    700 Mhz imac with 15 inch LCD, 128 MB of RAM, 40 GB drive, 10/100 Ethernet - $1300



    800 MHz PM G4, no LCD, no superdrive, 256 MB of RAM, 40 gig drive, ATI radeon 7500, Gb ethernet -$1600



    so for an extra $300, you loose an 15 inch LCD, and gain 100 MHz, extra 128 MB of RAM, an ATI radeon 7500 over the Geforce2 MX, and Gb ethernet over 10/100.



    don't know bout you guys, but it seems like the 100 MHz, upped gfx card, extra 128 MB of ram, and upped ethernet don't outway (or come too short of) the 15 inch LCD. so why is the PM G4 an extra $300? this can't remain like this for long...

    Added to the things you listed there is also a faster system bus and more expansion.



    I know this may not sound like a lot, but some people need PCI slots.

    The PM will kill the iMac in any speed tests. It has a faster drive, and faster system bus.

    Woohoo! The Mac is over 1 GHz!!!!!
  • Reply 15 of 21
    true, careless omission on my part. however, $300? for many the low end G4 is overpriced...
  • Reply 16 of 21
    Hmm, what bothers me is that there is no option for a built to order Geforce4 or even a Radeon 8500.



    Since the possibility of a Geforce4 card coming out in retail for the Mac is equal to nil, pro users are stuck with the low-end of Nvidia.



    I wonder how fast the geforce4 MX is, is it faster than a geforce3 or a radeon 8500? Usually, Nvidia's low end for their new generation performs similarly to their previous high-end.

    I think these look great. you guys are a tough sell. the 933 and dual 1Ghz with updated L3 cache, etc are great.

    I low end tower I suspect is purposely crippled to distinguish it from the 933. Although I thought they would have made it a 867 instead of 800.



    I won't say I told you so but I was pretty close.

    I was off with the dual 1GHz vs. a dual 933, but my prices were pretty much bang on.



    Check this thread for proof:

    These are great hold overs for companies that need faster MACS. The price/performance is much more reasonable compared to what it was yesterday.

    This is great! Best monday evar! Not only is my school cancled due to snow (same for you Michael?) but dual Ghz PM, reduced prices, and DDRL3 cache, and Geforce4MX. Most excellent.
