Apple ups the education ante

Apple has bolstered its product line-up for the education market, announcing a new desktop line designed specifically for the sector.

The eMac, which will be available from mid-June in Australia, was unveiled last week by Apple CEO Steve Jobs. "Our education customers asked us to design a desktop computer specifically for them," he said at the launch.

The eMac features a 17-inch CRT and 700MHz PowerPC G4 processor. The design is 8mm shallower than previous iMac products. It includes five USB ports, two FireWire ports and a choice of tray-loading CD-ROM or DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo drive. It also features a 40GB hard drive, 10/100BaseT Ethernet, and support for AirPort wireless networking. Pricing ranges from $1,195 to $2,344, depending on the configuration.

Apple has also introduced a digital visual interface (DVI) to its Apple display connector (ADC) adapter to allow users to connect its flat-panel displays with its new PowerBook G4.
