Apple eMac Not Just for Education Anymore

All in one comes to consumer market By Dave Nagel
Apple has brought the eMac to the consumer market. Introduced back in April for the education market in two configurations, the consumer model will be available in just one: a 700 MHz G4 for $1,099. The consumer version is available now through the Apple Store.

The model available to the public is the same as the higher-end model available for educators and students. It's an all in one model similar in design to the original iMac but with a 17-inch screen rather than a 15-inch screen. Features include

  • 40 GB ATA hard drive;
  • Built-in 10/100BASE-T Ethernet;
  • Support for optional AirPort (IEEE 802.11) wireless networking;
  • An audio-in port, headphone jack and integrated 16-watt digital amplifier and stereo speakers;
  • Nvidia GeForce2 MX 3D AGP 2x graphics with 32 MB of DDR memory;
  • Apple's optical Pro mouse and full-size Apple Pro Keyboard.
  • CD-RW drive.

The model ships with 128 MB RAM and a software bundle that includes Quicken Deluxe 2002, AppleWorks, WorldBook Mac OS X Edition and some other entertainment and productivity titles. The new model is available now. For more information, visit
