Not a complete list:

My vote is for the Power Granny or the SUPER Delicious.

    How about



    "Next Generation Apple Computer"



    That's it, that's the name. Or maybe NGAC.

    I hope Apple don't call the new iMac 'iMac 2' 'iMac II' or anything silly like that.



    I don't much like the DV extensions on some of the models.. Sounds a little corny to me.



    KISS - Call it 'iMac'



    Powermac is quite an old name, they'd have to come up with something very cool for it to be worth replacing I think.

    MatrixMac



    or how about M.A.C(Megahertz Are Coming)



    How about a Mac for Dyslexics named CAM



    Orrrrr how about A.I Mac(Advanced Interface, Artificial Intelligence, Aura Invincible, Auto Injoyment-for the spelling challenged)



    Ahhh the options are endless

    We can always count on TigerWoods for originality.



    I'm willing to bet a Voodoo 2 card that it will be called the iMac once again.



    After all, how many PB G3's did we have? 5?
