Apple refines iMac, Power Mac lines
For once, Apple's marketing hype for a product isn't over the top. The company has launched a 20-inch iMac with the "largest display in an all-in-one computer." The new iMac's 20" widescreen boasts a resolution of 1680x1050 and should be absolutely gorgeous, though the rest of the iMac's internals remain unchanged. The 20" iMac sells for $2199.
Apple has also tweaked its Power Mac G5 line and added a dual-processor 1.8GHz machine to the mix. The dual 1.8GHz machine is nicely wedged between Apple's current single-processor 1.6GHz Power Mac, and the high-end dual 2GHz system. The 1.8GHz Power Mac sells for $2,499 with a GeForce FX 5200 Ultra, 900MHz front-side bus, 512MB of DDR400 memory, a 160GB Serial ATA hard drive, and Apple's famous SuperDrive.
