Apple to Make eMac G4 Desktop Available to ConsumersApple will open sales of their education based G4 desktop to the general public early next week, industry sources confirmed. The eMac was introduced to the education sector in late April with a sticker price starting at $999.00. The company is now rumored to have finalized plans to provide a single configuration model to general consumers for under $1100.00. The computer maker's decision apparently stems from "overwhelming consumer demand" for such a product.
Though the eMac lacks a versatile LCD display, it will weigh in at $300 less than the company's most affordable iMac desktop, yet provide nearly 50 % more screen-space.
