iMac G5 update: now this is nice

Apple - iMac G5 - Technical Specifications

Apple recently updated the PowerMacs. It was a dull update. Not so for the update to the G5 iMac. Much better Graphics processing (full Tiger support), bigger drives, Bluetooth standard, GB ethernet, 512MB standard (at last), 802.11G built in and a software bundle that includes Mac Classic:
iLife ’05 (includes iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie HD, iDVD, GarageBand), Mail, Dashboard, Spotlight, iChat, Safari, Sherlock, QuickTime, iSync, iCal, DVD Player, Address Book, AppleWorks, iWork (30-day trial), Classic environment, Quicken 2005 for Macintosh, 2005 World Book Multimedia Reference Suite, Nanosaur 2, Marble Blast Gold, Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac Test Drive, Zinio Reader, XCode Developer Tools and Apple Hardware Test
At list price for the top-line 20" machine with two (paired?) 512MB SIMMS - $1924.00. Not bad at all for all of this.

If this machine passes its initial 1 month teething period it will replace our old Win2K box, leaving me with the one XP machine every home office (sadly) needs.
