Apple quietly discontinued the eMac yesterday.
I found this quote in the MacRumors forum:
You got the [Mac]mini that does as much or more now, get a monitor for $120, and you got something better than the eMac now
Actually - the MacMini is so much less than an eMac:
Notebook Hard Drive vs Desktop Hard Drive
Laptop Hard Drives are 4200RPM & 5400RPM / Desktop Drives are 7200RPM & faster
Notebook Optical Drive vs Desktop Optical Drive
Laptop optical drives are not available at retail and are months behind in technology & speed
One RAM slot that is inaccessable vs 2 easily accessable RAM slots
Max RAM on MacMini is 1GB vs 2GB on eMac / MacMini takes 10 minutes to add RAM vs eMac 2 minutes
Airport extreme hard to add vs eMac's easy to add slot
Same as RAM - extremely difficult and possible damage if you upgrade
The CRT on eMac were some of the best displays I have ever seen.
Color separation and response time on LCDs are no where near CRTs
There are no all in ones under $1299.99 anymore.
Personally, I think Apple could get away with a $799.99 LCD version of the eMac
Maybe we will see it again around "Intel inside" time.
