Apple Reduces eMac Prices -- Apple also reduced the price of the all-in-one eMac last week. The entry-level configuration, which includes 128 MB of RAM, a 40 GB hard drive, and a Combo drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW), now costs $200 less, at $800. The higher-end model, which includes a SuperDrive, 256 MB of RAM, and an 80 GB drive, has also been reduced $200, to $1,100. Both models come with a 1 GHz PowerPC processor, an ATI Radeon 7500 graphics card with 32 MB of video memory, and a 17-inch CRT monitor, and are capable of including a separate AirPort Extreme Card. The eMacs also come with Mac OS X 10.3 preinstalled, and will not boot into Mac OS 9. [JLC]
