I'm a little confused by Apples decision to release their new ‘education only’ computer, the eMac; isn't the iMac supposed to be the home-user / education machine ? It seems as though Apple have realised that the iMac is too expensive for schools to buy in bulk, especially since they added $100 to the price tag. Even more confusing is the inclusion of the 17 CRT display; I thought Apple were dropping the good old Cathode Ray Tube in favour of LCD technology. Furthermore, the eMac now has a larger monitor than the iMac, which indicates that there may be a new 17inch iMac on the way. Overall, a backward step I think.
