APPLE UNVEILS ENTIRELY NEW DESKTOP LINE.

Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) introduced an entirely new line of desktops including the revolutionary new Power Mac G4 Cube, an all-new iMac family and dual-processor Power Mac G4s. Apple's new desktops ship standard with Apple's new, innovative optical mouse and full-sized pro keyboard and come pre-installed with Apple's iMovie 2, the next version of the world's most popular, easy-to-use consumer digital video editing software.

The G4 Cube delivers the performance of a Power Mac G4 in an eight-inch cube suspended in a crystal-clear enclosure. The G4 Cube is less than one-fourth the size of most PCs, yet houses a 450 MHz PowerPC G4 processor with Velocity Engine that reaches supercomputer speeds of over three billion calculations per second (Gigaflops).

The G4 Cube includes a 450 MHz PowerPC G4 processor with Velocity Engine (Configurable to 500 MHz through the Apple Store); 64MB of memory expandable to 1.5GB; 20GB of storage (configurable up to 40GB through the Apple Store); a slot-loading DVD drive on the top of the G4 Cube for easy access; two FireWire and two USB ports; 10/100BASE-T Ethernet and a 56K V.90 modem.

The entirely new iMac line starts at a price of $799 and features four new models in new colors. The new iMac colors are Indigo, Ruby, Sage and Snow, and join the Graphite color in the line. The new iMac family offers fast PowerPC G3 processors now running at up to 500 MHz and larger storage up to 30GB. The iMac DV models also include iMovie 2, the next version of the world's most popular, easy-to-use consumer digital video editing software.
