Apple Unveils Faster eMacs
10:11 AM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story

Alongside the announcement of a new iMac G5, Apple unveiled a new eMac today. This update dispels fears that the eMac was due for discontinuation in face of competition from the Mac mini. Gamers will be pleased to note that the new eMac includes a Radeon 9600 with 64MB of VRAM, a substantial step-up from the Radeon 9200 in the previous model. This compares with the 128MB VRAM variety of the Radeon 9600 in the new iMac G5 and a 32MB VRAM Radeon 9200 in the Mac mini. The new eMac range comes in at $799 for a Combo drive model and $999 for a Superdrive model.

Full specifications are listed below:

Combo Drive eMac Suggested retail price, $799 (US)

17-inch flat CRT display
