New Macs

I just shelled out $3k for a new Mac. I got one of the early shipments into Australia based on the updated iMac design (built-in iSight etc.). Problems with Firewire bus power. Problems with AirPort range/interference (not present in either the PowerBook or iBook machines I have used).

Now this. Needless to say I’m a little pissed off. It’s a clear money grab on Apple’s part, clearing old G5 processors I’d say. I wouldn’t have cared if it had been announced in three month’s time, but this close to the previous update (which was a significant advance on the previous model with new case, iSight, speed-bump etc.), it’s a rort.

  • Hi Grant,
    browsed your blog from my old feeds and saw this. I don’t blame you for being pissed off. I almost bought one too and wasn’t expecting them to roll out new iMacs, but I waited because I was prepared to look into a Mac Mini (thinking these were going to roll out first with intel chips). They’ve done this before though.
