New eMac: Flat screen

While the iMac has gotten its G5 processor and a great, clean new look, the eMac has gotten less attention lately. Sources now claim that the next eMac will finally get rid of the last CRT display in Apple's line-up. TFTs are now cheap enough for this entry-level Mac.

Both in order not to compete with the iMac G5 and to keep pricing down, the eMac will sport a 15" TFT, though. The 1024*768 resolution is 'good enough' for its use (and schools who want bigger displays can still get reduced pricing on iMacs) and certainly makes the new eMac an attractive buy for home-users, too.
Overall, the new eMac will be a 'small iMac' in some sense. According to our sources, the new eMac will indeed have a G5 processor (1.6 GHz PowerPC 970), but will only appear when (or after) the PowerBook G5 is introduced.
