Macworld Disaster!

Posted:
in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
What a disaster! A new imac running 700 or 800 mhz with a 100mhz bus for $1800! And on top of that no G4 speed bump! Intel and AMD are blowing Apple away! And the other new hardware upgrade? A 14" screen on the ibook! Yea the ibook with an obsolete 600mhz G3! What a joke!!! What idiot would buy an Apple with a G3? The G4 is slow enough, but to buy a G3? You would have to be a retard! This new imac is going to go the way of the Cube! It looks so korny! It's a sad pathetic day for mac people!!!!

    i may not agree with rbald's phrasing of the situation, but i am getting very angry that the networks are giving TONS of free air time to Intel, AMD, and (I GUARANTEE) Microsoft (tomorrow)... to the common folks sitting at home, it's as if Apple is standing still.

    Here's the sad reality ...



    Apple @ 867MHz



    Intel @ 2.2Mhz



    It IS as if Apple is standing still.



    This is the MacWorld that should've happened 6 months ago, to open 2002 with a top end still below 1Ghz is pathetic.

    I wish they would have kept crt's for education. Does anyone know if they will on the side?



    I still wonder about Steve's wish to get an iMac to sub $500. Did he give up on that?



    Journalism in America is really getting to me (as if that is anything new). Why can't jounalists ask real questions about technology rather than droning on like marketing wonks? Oh yeah, AOL and MS and Disney own everything!



    MacW was not a disaster, just a revolution of hardware style over hardware substance. The prices show how much the G3 was and is allowing prices to be low compared to the G4. It really seems more than ever how terrible for Apple the development of the G4 has been.



    Oh and can we please leave the land of white computers behind at some point? To me it is an obnoxious form of beige.

    I don't think it's all that bad, guys. It's really all about Steve, after all. He wants blockbuster announcements only this year. The new iMac effectively relplaces the $1699 733 MHz tower with a much cheaper machine. Subtract the price of a 15" LCD and Superdrive from the price of the new iMac any you'll see just how much of a price reduction this is. This year's Power Macs will be nothing short of incredible - once we get the damn chips, of course.

    This iMac is truly anither great value in the Apple line-up. A superdrive equiped G4 with an 800 Mhz processor and a 15 inch flat panel a year ago costed $4,500 (and it was a 733 a year ago).



    WHAT AN INCREDIBLE VALUE!
