    The rumors are out on the new specs for the Powermac, iMac, and eMac
    http://www.thinksecret.com/news/0504macs.html

    Just giving a heads up to those that don't check thinksecret.

    iMac and eMac get better video cards, speed increases all around.

    Nope.. Unfortunatly, the videocard in the iMac isnt actually a card. It's onboard. Meaning its soldered onto the mother board.

    And that is why no matter how good of a value the iMac is/will be, I will spend more $$ on the PM so I wouldn't be locked into something that can be upgraded on any other computer in 10 minutes

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 2.6 GHz Core 2 Duo 4GB RAM OS 10.5.2
    For the price I paid for my iMac and the footprint it takes up.. Ill just buy another when it comes to that time

    i am glad to hear that the powermac upgrades arent that significant... i just got mine 3 weeks ago, i was worried they were going to like start at 2.5 and go up to 3.5 or something. oh well

    Specs:
    Mac Mini 1.58 - 60 GB 7200 RPM Hard Drive - 1 GB PC3200 & 1.33 Ghz 12" iBook w/ 80 GB 7200 RPM HD
    I've tried to tell peeps for ages now that they would continue the eMac line...the mini doesn't replace it...there's no built-in monitor.

    I hope it does, it would be nice if all of their computers could support Core Image.

    I thought it had started to fade out as well. It seems like, lately, there have been a few more emac users joining us here. I'm glad to see it's still popular. I think they (apple) sell the imac so hard, that people forget about the emac. More power to those who buy it, and i hope they enjoy it.

    i knew the mini wasnt gonna replace the eMac.. It just seems that the better choice would be the imac if u are looking for an all-in-one

    .... Cool!

    ... This would mean that the current iMac G5's will go down in price???

    Correct??


    Ill probably buy a used one.... I was thinking of getting a new powermac but maybe just a used iMac and new Powerbook, that'd be cool.

    ... For all I do anyway I doubt it would make a big difference.

    I'd be mainly using Macromedia Director MX
    Flash MX
    Photoshop

    Surfing the net

    Microsoft office.

    Who will benefit most from these new upgrades? :headphone

    I think Apple would be silly NOT to upgrade ALL systems to support all features of Tiger - Core Image included.
    It's likely the iBook will get an upgraded video card, but then again there are factors that I don't know about, like would cooling be a probblem on a more powerful graphics card?

    They'll probably stop selling the current ones, they will probably put them on sale to get rid of what they have in inventory.
