Rumor: Speed bumped 1GHz eMac; third model coming soon

“Apple is on the verge of announcing a trio of speed-bumped eMacs, sources confirmed to Think Secret. Highly reliable sources said that Apple’s consumer eMac lineup will be expanded to three models. In an effort to fill the gap left by the departure of the classic iMac G3, the first will be a bare-bones 800MHz G4 unit that will ship with only a CD-ROM drive. The other two models will ship with a Combo drive and SuperDrive, like today’s units, but will now both clock at 1GHz, and include larger hard drives. Apple currently offers just two models, with the exception of a third custom-built unit with a stand and more RAM. Other changes are in store. All models will be ready for AirPort Extreme, but, like the current units, none will actually ship with an AirPort card inside. Apple will also drop the current NVIDIA GeForce2 MX graphics processor for an ATI Radeon 7500. The new eMacs are also expected to boast S-video and composite video output, though the Apple Video Adapter will be required to connect to a TV. Current models ship with VGA video output only,” report Full article here.
