    What do you guys think the new iMacs will be like? I hope they get a 17" monitor, ±600mhz processor and a cdrw BTO option. I'm seriously thinking of buying one to use as a server.

    No way they'll have a 17" monitor or 600MHz. They'd cost way too much for a consumer system. That's PowerMac turf. Most likely they'll just have CD-RW drives and G4 CPUs. Maybe UMA2 and MX graphics, but that's pushing it.

    I agree with the G4..if they pushed a G4 into a subnotebook then the new iMacs will have them as well.

    That'd be cool if Apple offered a bare bones G4 with nothing except the motherboard, case and processor.

    Hell yes! :D But I don't think they ever will. Steve is way too anal and wouldn't allow it. :(
