Send Article to a Friend

Poll Preview: Mac Attack! Last week at Macworld Expo, Apple completely revised its desktop computer offerings (see the article below), so the new systems are the subject of this week's poll. If you were going to purchase one of Apple's just announced Macs today, which one would you buy? Are your decisions driven primarily by price (the $799 iMac), design (the G4 Cube), sheer horsepower (500 MHz dual-processor systems), or other factors? Cast your vote on our home page! [GD]
