Actually a lot of schools do network installations. They install any given software from a main computer located where-ever on the network. I dont know ANY that go to EVERY single computer and install the software one by one...would take too much time to walk around to every one of them.

We're like the apes looking at the Monolith in 2001: A Space Odessey. Obviously Apple has taken another giant leap forward. This new iMac has no keyboard or mouse because it doesn't need them. It works on direct neural input, it reads your mind! I would imagine you have to put it through a recognition process when you first turn it on. No need to set up users, it already knows who you are! For some people it's going to have a more difficult time picking up brainwaves than others. Doubtless many will be returning them due to the error message "No signal received".

Why would apple spend a whole lotta money making a machine that nobody except schools will want? (without a CD-rom drive)

besides, my high school has this TINY mac section, and I'm pretty sure that they'll be fading that out when they get the next PC upgrade.
The reason macs are losing in schools is simple - parents want their kid to be using a computer that they will use for the rest of their life - and macs GENERALLY are not computers that MOST people use a whole lot.

It's not nice, it's not pretty, but it's business.

That would be something




But i really do think that it would be very silly to not include a cd-drive, especially since they are so cheap now!

plus eMacs are for schools not iMacs.

Heh heh, I guess you're right. I read the thread before and I didn't know it had gone that far. I saw it on Macrumors so I decided to post it even though I was in a rush.

You guys just can't seem to get along do you? Try.. for all of us.. please!

Now about the chameleon thing.. it will not be invisible.. you can choose what color you would like to make it.. it doesnt just change colors by itself.. if you wanted a red iMac, you would choose red in your preferences and bam.. you have a red iMac or whatever color you would want. I think that is very very kewl
