MacRumors !!!! discusses !!!! New !!!! iMac !!!!

Posted:
in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
So today there has been an increase to the rumor mill of what the NEW iMac will have...



See http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2003/...10053615.shtml

-All exterior design discussed



So I propose people throw out what they'd want inside this bad machine.



Personally I'd buy



iMac 20"

0.9 nm 2GHz PowerPC G5

1GHz frontside bus/processor

1MB L2 cache/processor

1GB DDR400 128-bit SDRAM

160GB Serial ATA

SuperDrive

ATI Radeon 9600 Pro

128MB DDR video memory

Optical Audio Out





Yes... I know this looks a lot like the current G5 PowerMac, but understand that the PowerMac will also get a HUGE power bump... so this will still be far below the top of the line. Ready for the Consumer to Buy!



I'd also Suggest a $1799 Price tag on the 20"



The 15" model would be droped or sold for a cheap $1199 and the 17" for $1499

    Well, there's already another thread on this topic, but I'll suggest what Apple will likely offer:



    iMac 20"

    130nm 1.6GHz PowerPC G5

    800MHz frontside bus/processor

    256MB DDR400 SDRAM

    160GB Serial ATA

    SuperDrive

    Geforce 5200 video

    32MB DDR video memory

    USB 2.0, Firewire, NO digital audio out.

    $2199



    The G5 won't be available in the smaller screen sizes or lower prices.

    I think the rumors are overblown, but we'll see soon enough.

    Sorry to hear, murbot. I guess you need to get somebody else in the mod-erhood, e.g. Fran411 (who posted instead of shutting down this moronic thread!), to step up to the plate.
