iMac G5

iMac G5 Here is what everyone has been waiting for, and it is finally released to the public. Welcome iMac G5.

And yes. I want one!

It has either a 17" or 20" wide screen LCD screen, to the same quality as the Apple Cinema display. It also boasts either 1.6Ghz or 1.8Ghz PowerPC G5 processor and Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 graphics processor. You have choice between a slot loading combo drive or a slot loading Super Drive. And everything is contained inside a 2 inch thin case, inside this all-in-one design.

Wow.

And I reckon the price has also hit the sweet spot. From the on-line Apple Store, AUD$2,199 for 17" 1.6Ghz, AUD$2,499 for 17" 1.8Ghz, and AUD$3,199 for 20" 1.8Ghz - all cheaper than the previous "desk lamp" model.

My work computer is due an upgrade, but I doubt they will buy me an iMac....
