  1. As PPC production lines are closed, more production capacity becomes available for Intel Macs.

    This annouoncement is just more evidence that the transition is going well.

    The next thing to look for is EOL of PowerBooks.

  2. Gezzzzzz, and I just got mine delivered and out of the box. ??????

    I can see it now.

    APPLE AD. Steve Jobs walks out during an Apple info event.

    Steve: Today another first for Apple! —— drum roll—-

    Today we announce the NEW Insanely great iMac Intel 99. It is shipping right now and you can order it at the Apple store.

    We also want to announce that at the end of this presentation, we are announcing the “END OF LIFE announcement for the iMac Intel 99.

    Yes, Buy it quick cause its already outdated. See us next month for the new–er newest Mac from Apple. (Unless we announce its END OF LIFE — even before we announce its existance. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

    WEIRD– ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

  3. In the past, I purchased two different G3 end of life Macs. I won’t be making that mistake again.

    Well, maybe for one or two hundred dollars, I would. Ok. Three hundred tops. lol.

  4. “Powerbook, PowerMac, ibook, and Xserve the priest is here to read you your last rights.”

    I wouldn’t count out the PowerBook, PowerMac, or Xserve just yet. There’s still nothing from Intel for those and I’d bet that a PowerBook running Photoshop/Xpress/InDesign will run rings around a MacBook Pro doing the same.

    The iBook, on the other hand, should definitely be getting it’s affairs in order.

    (As an aside, I’m waiting for Apple to “blow out” the G5 Quads once the Macintosh Pro machines are announced. I will so be there…)

  5. I’m glad I was able to get one before they disappeared. My family loves it as a home computer especially that darn remote. They enjoy watching movie trailers. Front Row definitely has a lot of potential.
