More details emerge regarding rumored Apple 42- and 50-inch plasma display Macs

“On Friday I posted a story on the PowerPage about a possibility that Apple will introduce new 42 and 50-inch plasma displays at Macworld Expo tomorrow – with built-in in Macs,” Jason D. O’Grady writes for ZDNet. “It should also be noted that several other people were told about the stealth project too, in various pieces… They confirmed the specs, prices and that the plasma Macs are based on Intel Viiv technology, going so far as offering part numbers.”

O’Grady writes, ” Apparently the plasmas will include Front Row 2.0 which will include Apple’s brand spankin’ new Digital Video Recording (DVR) software. Front Row 2.0 (with DVR) will also come bundled on the new Intel-based Mac mini… the new Mac mini will be powered by a juicy 2.8GHz dual-core Yonah processor… the juicy new plasmas will ship with a new multimedia remote control (which it patented in April 2002) with a built-in LCD display… Apple’s new multimedia Macs could have something to do with Apple’s recent Vingle patent for ‘electronic transmission of streamed and downloadable audio and video files via computer and other communications networks.'”

RUMOR: Apple to debut 42- and 50-inch widescreen plasma HDTVs at Macworld Expo – January 07, 2006


  1. I will be dumbstruck with shock and awe if this happens, and will be running to the AppleStore to order one seconds later. This would catapult Apple to the very top of the large-screen TV market, and totally eclipse every other manufacturer in one fell swoop.

    Sony’s Sir Howard will be gnashing his teeth with frustration if this comes around.

  2. “the new Mac mini will be powered by a juicy 2.8GHz dual-core Yonah processor”

    A 2.8 GHz Yonah processor DOES NOT exist. They only go up to 2.16 GHz.

    That’s okay. He’s just revealed himself as a liar who can’t even make a convincing story.

  3. 2.8 ghz Yonah? I thought the fastest Yonah to date was 2.16 ghz.

    I’d love for this to be true but I don’t buy it. I think O’Grady is just trying to mess with people.
