Apple just released a new iMac, so far I have only seen it in the US educational stores.

This is not a mockup or fake. It is the real thing.



Don't beleive me, just read the apple press release Apple Introduces $899 Education Configuration for 17-inch iMac
NECC, SAN DIEGO–July 5, 2006–Apple® today introduced a new $899 configuration of the 17-inch iMac® designed specifically for education customers featuring a 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo processor, a built-in iSight™ video camera and iLife® ‘06, the next generation of Apple’s award-winning suite of digital lifestyle applications. The 17-inch iMac for education is available immediately and will replace the eMac®, Apple’s last CRT based computer, providing students and teachers everything they need to learn and create in today's digital classroom, all in the ultra-efficient iMac design.

The ultimate in design simplicity, the iMac is ideal for the space saving needs of both the classroom and the dorm room with the entire computer built right into a two-inch thin display. The iMac design has continuously improved generation after generation, resulting in increased material efficiency, decreased packaging mass and volume, and decreased energy consumption—all of which lead to a smaller environmental footprint.

Featuring a 17-inch widescreen LCD display, the iMac for education includes a Combo drive for burning CDs and reading DVDs, 512MB of 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM memory expandable up to 2GB and hard drive storage capacity up to 160GB. Every iMac also includes a built-in iSight video camera for video conferencing out-of-the-box using Apple’s award-winning iChat AV, or recording a video podcast or iMovie® using iLife ‘06. Providing the latest in high-performance connectivity options, the 17-inch iMac for education includes built-in 10/100/1000 BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet for high-speed networking, built-in AirPort® Extreme 802.11g WiFi for up to 54 Mbps fast wireless networking*, a total of five USB ports (three USB 2.0) and two FireWire® 400 ports.

Designed with today's digital classroom in mind, every iMac comes with iLife ‘06, the next generation of Apple’s award-winning suite of digital lifestyle applications featuring iPhoto®, iMovie HD, iDVD®, GarageBand™ and iWeb™, a new iLife application that makes it super-easy to create amazing websites with photos, blogs and Podcasts and publish them on .Mac for viewing by anyone on the Internet with just a single click. Every iMac also comes with the latest release of the world’s most advanced operating system, Mac OS® X version 10.4.6 “Tiger” including Safari™, Mail, iCal®, iChat AV, Front Row and Photo Booth, running natively on the Intel-based desktop.

Pricing & Availability
The 17-inch iMac for education is available immediately for education customers through the Apple Store for Education (www.apple.com/education/store) or by calling an Apple education sales representative at 800-800-APPL. The eMac will no longer be in production and is available for purchase while supplies last through the Apple Store for Education (www.apple.com/education/store) or by calling an Apple education sales representative at 800-800-APPL. Apple will showcase the 17-inch iMac and its complete line of products and solutions for education at the National Educational Computing Conference in San Diego, California from July 5-7, 2006. For details, please visit www.apple.com/education/necc.

The 17-inch 1.83 GHz iMac, for a suggested education price of $899 (US), includes:

17-inch widescreen LCD display;
1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo processor;
512MB of 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM expandable to 2GB;
24x Combo drive;
Intel GMA 950 graphics;
built-in iSight video camera;
built-in AirPort Extreme wireless networking;
80GB Serial ATA hard drive running at 7200 rpm;
mini-DVI out (adapters for DVI, VGA and Composite/S-Video sold separately);
built-in stereo speakers and microphone; and
Mighty Mouse and Apple Keyboard.
Build-to-order options and accessories include up to 2GB DDR2 SDRAM, 160GB Serial ATA hard drive, iWork™ ’06 (pre-installed), Apple Remote and Apple USB Modem.

*AirPort Extreme uses the IEEE 802.11g wireless standard. Actual speed will vary based on range from the base station, environmental conditions and other factors.

Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh. Today, Apple continues to lead the industry in innovation with its award-winning desktop and notebook computers, OS X operating system, and iLife and professional applications. Apple is also spearheading the digital music revolution with its iPod portable music players and iTunes online music store.

Here is the report from abc
Quote:
July 5 Apple said Wednesday that it has replaced its CRT-based eMac personal computer with a $899 derivative of its existing Intel-based iMac.

The older eMac will be available until Apple has sold through its existing inventory, the company said.

Apple introduced the eMac in April 2002, amid fears that the company was losing its traditional customers in the education field. The eMac was based on the iMac all-in-one, integrated CRT platform — just a few months after chief executive Steve Jobs had declared the CRT dead.

Shortly after its launch, Apple allowed its retail outlets to sell the eMac to consumers, although the company again restricted eMac sales to Apple education customers in 2005.

The cheapest iMac model that Apple currently offers is its $1,299 version, which includes a discrete 17-inch monitor, and is based upon a 1.83-GHz Intel Core Duo processor. While the new $899 iMac also includes those two features, the cheaper model uses Intel's integrated GMA 950 graphics chipset, a smaller hard drive, and a 24X combo drive, rather than the 8X SuperDrive Apple offers on its more expensive model.


Although Apple does not break out its product sales by model, the company said it reported Macintosh desktop sales of $614 million for its most recent quarter ended April 1.

The new Apple iMac includes: a 17-inch widescreen LCD display; a 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo processor; 512 Mbytes of 667-MHz DDR2 SDRAM, expandable to 2 Gbytes; and a 80-Gbyte Serial ATA hard drive. The chassis still includes the iSight video camera and AirPort Extreme wireless networking. Built-in stereo speakers, a min-DVI connector, and a mouse and keyboard are also included. Two FireWire 800 and five USB ports round out the system.

The software package includes Mac OS X version 10.4.6 "Tiger" including Safari, Mail, iCal, iChat AV, Front Row and Photo Booth, as well as iPhoto, iMovie HD, iDVD, GarageBand and iWeb, a new iLife application that allows consumers to publish webs or blogs on the Apple .Mac service.

Back with the mac!

When these are released in the UK, boy will they be cheap, I might think about getting one, although the eMac I currently have (and recently got) is already blowing me away with amazement at how much of a consumer based computer can do so much for me!

Back with the mac!

I saw these online the day I heard about it, now you have to access/order from a different place on their site I think...

apparently overwhelming response I assume?

I thought I saw a "new" stipulation about education organizations rather than just individuals being able to order them now....
