Sub $500 Mac

Wow, I hope this is true. Apple might be releasing a very cheap mac at the upcoming expo.

This would appeal to PC users who want to have a mac but dont want to spend a lot of money. It wont come with a display, but will be able to be hooked up to a monitor.

The new Mac is expected to have a Combo drive only, but will possibly have an upgrade path to a SuperDrive at a higher price. It is unclear how big the hard drive capacity will be, although sources indicate it will be between 40GB and 80GB.

Other expected features of the iMac include:

* 256MB of RAM
* USB 2.0
* FireWire 400
* 10/100 BASE-T Ethernet
* 56K V.92 modem
* AirPort Extreme support

This is only a rumor, but wouldnt it be nice to have a bunch more mac users out there

There was some speculation on the sub-$500 being some sort of Media center rival. I highly doubt that, since Steve Jobs said himself that he didn't think that a media Center is a huge idea.

This type of computer sounds more possible, and it would be sweet if we had much more mac users. Maybe we could have some decent games.
