eMac becomes cat bed

eMac becomes cat bed, post.




Wow, I had totally forgotten the "eMac". I think it was the entry level Mac for a couple of years, but only sold to schools. I think it was the only all-in-one Mac to still use a CRT display after the iMac had gone LCD. 


... Aha, right. It was also sold to the general public later, though. Until LCDs really dropped in price, they still needed a CRT model for entry level pricing.

Yes, I am sooo happy that with the Intel chips they finally got the heat/noise issue solved. My first Intel Power Mac made perhaps 1/20th of the noise that the G5 Mac before it made. Wonderful.
