Apple Updates eMac Line -- Apple Computer last week announced the availability of new all-in-one eMac computers. Like their predecessors, the new eMacs sport a 17-inch CRT display (rather than the LCD flat panel displays used in other Macs) supporting resolutions up to 1280 by 960 pixels, but the eMacs now offer 800 MHz and 1 GHz G4 processors, the ATI Radeon 7500 graphics processor, support for AirPort Extreme, and optional SuperDrives. The $800 base model eMac features an 800 MHz G4 processor, a CD-ROM drive, a 40 GB hard drive, and 128 MB of RAM. The $1,000 version of the eMac offers a 1 GHz G4 processor, a 32x DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo drive, and a 60 GB hard drive, while the high-end $1,300 eMac sports a 1 GHz G4 processor, a 4x SuperDrive, 256 MB of RAM, and an 80 GB hard drive. All models have two FireWire ports, 5 USB ports (three on the computer, two on the keyboard), an audio line-in port for microphones or other audio equipment, 10/100Base-T Ethernet and a V.92 56 Kbps modem. The CD-ROM and Combo drive eMacs still support booting in Mac OS 9, though the SuperDrive-equipped eMac boots only into Mac OS X. The new systems ship with Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar, and they are available both through normal consumer channels and to education customers in the U.S. and Canada. [GD]
