Apple Unveils the eMac
1:05 PM | Vern Xiong | Comment on this story

Apple CEO Steve Jobs today unveiled the eMac, an all-in-one system with a 17-inch CRT and a 700 MHz PowerPC G4 processor. The eMac is shaped like its iMac cousin, and answers the education market's call for an education-specific Mac.

According to Jobs:

Our education customers asked us to design a desktop computer specifically for them. The new eMac features a 17-inch flat CRT and a powerful G4 processor, while preserving the all-in-one compact enclosure that educators love.
The eMac will come loaded with five USB ports, two FireWire ports, and a bundle of software: iMovie, iPhoto, iTunes, WorldBook Mac OS X Edition, QuickTime, AppleWorks, and more.

Inside, it comes equipped with a choice of a tray-loading CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo drive for watching DVDs and burning CDs; a 40 GB ATA Hard Drive; built-in 10/100base-T Ethernet; support for optional AirPort wireless networking; a viewable image size of 16 inches on the 17-inch flat CRT; an audio-in port, headphone jack, and integrated 16-watt digital amplifier and stereo speakers for great stereo sound; GeForce2 MX 3D AGP 2X graphics with 32 MB of Double Date Rate video memory; and Apple's optical Pro mouse and full-size Apple Pro Keyboard.

The eMac will come in two forms: a $999 base version will have just the CD-ROM drive while the $1199 version will come equipped with the DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo Drive and also a 56K V.90 modem.
