Thin Is In
The latest release of the Apple iMac G5
has consumers running to Apple stores and online. But although orders
and shipments of the iMac G5 can take up to four weeks or more,
it’s worth the wait, say iMac aficionados and converts. The new
sleek design (much like that of the iPod) yields a space-saving and multi-functional
desktop, and the wide-screen display is the main attraction, allowing
for a picture-perfect view of photos and DVDs (courtesy of the multi-combo
drive). Users can opt for either a 1.6GHz PowerPC G5 processor, or a 1.8GHz
PowerPC G5. Prices start at $1,299. www.apple.com.
Weight is definitely not an issue with Sony’s
new 6-pound, 4-ounce projector, VPL-CS7. The VPL-CS7 saves
valuable class-to-class time by providing an Off & Go function enabling
users to unplug the unit and carry it away as soon as the presentation
is over, without having to wait for the cooling fan to stop. And for added
security, the password authentication system helps prevent unauthorized
use and, potentially, theft. The VPL-CS7 is also HDTV/DTV-ready,
allowing for a variety of presentation uses. Sony reps say that with their
new offering, presentations look great in light, in dark, and even in
small meeting areas. Priced at $1,400. www.sony.com.
