New iMac first impressions

I can’t believe it’s September already. Anyway, I’ve had a couple days to look over the new G5 iMac that Apple announced and I must admit that it looks awesome. I currently have the G4 iMac and I am already thinking about selling it and getting the new one.  The fact that they were able to put the G5 processor in such a compact housing makes you wonder how close they are to making a Powerbook G5.  ğŸ˜‰  This is the model that I predict will be the most popular.

* 17-inch : 1.8 GHz – $1,399.00
(Discounted from $1,499 retail price)
– 17-inch widescreen LCD
– 1.8GHz PowerPC G5
– 512K L2 cache
– 600MHz frontside bus
– 256MB DDR400 SDRAM
– NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra
– 64MB DDR video memory
– 80GB Serial ATA hard drive
– Slot-load SuperDrive

The $1399 price is from their education store, if you’re lucky enough to be a student.  Now, if only I can get someone to buy my old iMac.
