Just wondering, but why did Apple put that as the primary slogan to the iMac G5? It just seems a little strange to me. They're not only promoting a computer and NOT an MP3 player, but a new version of a famous model that's been out for a while. I realize the iMac G5 and iPod look kinda similar with their flat white screes, but so did the iMac G4. So, why did Apple promote that? Because many people who are PC users have iPods and like them a lot, and Apple wants to tell them that this new product was made by the same people who made the MP3 Player? That's just a guess. It's just very interesting, that's all, that they chose that as their primary slogan.

Spot On!

At this date, the iPod is Apple's most widely recognised product across any platform, so they are trying to exploit that.

up close it really does seem like a giant iPod on a stand.
