Are external monitors a Pro Feature?
After today's update of the iMac and last weeks Powermac update, it seems as if Apple has no plans to offer afordable desktops. The $999 eMac just doen't cut it, it is dated technology with a $100 price drop. Apple is implementing agressive pricing with the noebooks and displays, but the desktops are still very overprices, as if they are taking advatage of desktop computer users. Going back to the topic of this thread, does Apple really beleive that consumers do not want to choose their own monitor. I like Apple monitors, btu they are too expensive for my budget. All I want is a sub $1000 Mac, without a built in display. It is very frustrating when on the PC side one can pruchase a well-configured PC for under $1000, when Mac users are offered last years scraps at slightly discounted prices. I don's know what Apple was thinking when they updated the iMacs, especially if they wanted to be more agressive. They raised the price! If they won't lower the price, then at least offer the same exact monitor without the monitor for $999. I don'd understadn why Apple can't get it through their thick head that we want a cheap headless Mac. AIO as far as I am concerned, is a niche market. If Apple wants to expand, they must offer such a model.
