Breaking Rumor: Headless Entry-Level Mac
Wednesday, 2004 December 29 - 7:15 pm
The Mac rumor presses are buzzing with news that Apple is preparing a sub-$500 entry-level Macintosh.

The Macintosh community has long clamored for a "headless" (sans display) entry-level Macintosh to help entice Windows users to switch to the Apple platform.

According to several Mac rumor web sites, Apple plans to introduce just such a machine next month. The news appears to have been broken first by Think Secret.

The machine is likely to be priced at $499 (less than a top-of-the-line iPod), and sport a 1.25 GHz G4 processor and 256 MB of RAM. In many respects, it appears to be roughly equivalent to an iBook minus the LCD display and battery. The enclosure is said to be small and slim, allowing it to be placed underneath a monitor, or to stand on its side.

The push for this machine is reportedly to cash in on the iPod "halo effect".

If this rumor is true, and if Apple can actually make a profit on this machine without cannibalizing its higher-end iMac and eMac sales, and if this generates an increase in market share... wow.

The Register has an interesting thought, one that I had also: if the slim-form-factor report turns out to be true, this machine might make for a pretty nice media center (DVR/jukebox) device as well. Wow again.

Supposedly, these are pictures of the new "iHome" headless iMac. Many seem to believe this pictures are fakes.
