Oh. Ehm. Gee.
I can't even imagine what it would feel like to work on such a huge display.
There are 50 inch plasmas already out there. I guess this is designed specifically for Apple comps?
"but the report describes that the new plasma displays will be powered by Intel's recently announced Viiv multimedia platform running Mac OS X 10.4.4 for x86 (Intel)."
The computer is built-in.
That's chill, great for company front offices....
can you imagine a 50" iMac
Wouldn't a 50" display tip over the liittle computer, that acts as the base?:laugh:
I can't really see it happening. The Mac Mini has already proven a capable machine for hooking up in the lounge, it's small, silent and can utilise wireless keyboard/mouse. Plasma's aren't exactly well known for offering high resolution, and burn in is still an issue, which is no good when using an OS which displays a static white bar at the top of the screen.
I'm just waiting on Intel based iBooks, they may not even see light of day for months to come though, rumours are always plentiful around this time.
The keynote begins around 9am PST on Tuesday I believe, which if I have my time zones right is about 6am wednesday morning for me.... i hate timezones
Lol, apple is trying to be like Dell now that Dell has encroached on its display quality
comes complete with 12 inch rivets to mount it to your desk
Yeah I was thinking the same thing.
A little competition won't hurt anyone!
better yet, a 50" iBook
I also doubt that the plasma rumor is true. I just posted it because it's out there. If Apple were to go with something like this, I doubt they'd choose plasma.
Plasma's have a problem with burn-in of static images. Not exactly conducive to computer use.
This is true, and LCD's can experience burn-in as well.
I'm glad that this rumor turned out to be false. As cool as it would be to have a Mac built-in to a huge display, plasma isn't the way to go.
Screensaver - set to kick in after 20 minutes. :lick:
LCD's might have burn in, but let them sit for a day without power, and it will be gone. It is also not that big of a problem if one just turns it off when it is not needed, however plasma still has a faster burnin than LCD.
Not to mention that todays plasmas have very little burn in when compared to the first few generations of plasmas... a plasma needs to have a VERY static picture with the plasma being left on for hours upon hours to even begin to see the first stages of burn-in....
many of the nice plasmas have a life expectancy of 60,000 hours...
not to shabby when you consider the price point for a 60" plasma is still as cheap or cheaper than a 37" LCD
So my screensaver suggestion would hold then mlakrid?
