Apple to release El Cheapo PC

Macintosh Classic

Looks like apple is about to announce a new bare bones G4-based iMac at Macworld Expo on January 11.

The thing is expected to retail for $499 and is expected to include the following:

  • 1.25 GHz G4 processor
  • DvI / VGA Output
  • 40 - 80 GB hard drive
  • 256MB of RAM
  • USB 2.0
  • FireWire 400
  • 10/100 BASE-T Ethernet
  • 56K V.92 modem
  • AirPort Extreme support

The new Mac is said to be incredibly small and will be housed in a flat enclosure with a height similar to the 1.73 inches of Apple's Xserve. Its size benefits will include the ability to stand the Mac on its side or put it below a display or monitor.
