in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
I'm going to bite the bullet here and assume all major announcements for NAB is done.



So, Tiger release. Any New Hardware to coincide? Tiger+New Hardware could = good results for apple financial quarter april-jun 2005...

    I don't think that maintaining the eMac requires prohibitively huge resources. It needs little to zero R&D, it may be configured as a Mac mini with a monitor, using the same main board. Doesn't make sense to me unless it doesn't sell at all.



    I voted for no hardware updates. Out of sheer spite. Because I hate the situation when Apple consistently fails to satisfy demand on any new hardware. They should contract more manufacturers first or keep their own capable plants. Otherwise Apple should abandon the idea of increasing marketshare.

    Since Apple is having an "Tiger Event" on the 29th, I think that perhaps they will update the iMacs this coming Monday/Tuesday. Systems will ship on time for a Tiger release, and then the stores will have the new models ready to buy for customers who come for the "Tiger event." Make sense?



    This may be just emacs, iMacs, iBooks, and somewhere down the road the Power Macs will get their due. :/

    What and upstage their OS mainpage? Not bloodly likely. How often does Apple TOTALLY change their site? Okay then. Case closed, no new hardware.

    Costique is right. It isn't IBM or Freescale which holds up Apple's releases, it's their outsourcing of manufacturing. They have great big lots of machines built each time (I guess to bring down costs), then they take forever to sell them, and they don't make new ones until the last ones are sold.



    So the model for predicting releases should be, forget when new technology is available, or where Apple is relative to competitors. Completely forget it, it's irrelevant. Watch inventory.

    amen... better video hardware, with an option to upgrade to something even better in the iMac would be nice, too.

    I say nothing on the 29th (PowerMacs anyway). Apple should make us sweat it out until WWDC.
