    ah... guess you may be right. the prices for the towers were off by a lot in places but overall I think it was pretty good. powerbook was also close because I didn't adjust the speeds for a 133Mhz bus so it would have been 667 or 733

    Did you guess the design too? While at MWNY I thought the new iMac would look like a apple studio display (B&W g3 15 inch one) with HD, CD-RW drive & ports in the base, with MoBo in the neck. I was close too, but no where near what Apple released. As for the iMac specs, you could always over-clock the bus
