eMac in Education
Designed for education, Apple’s most affordable desktop
computer now features increased processing power, a faster
CD- and DVD-burning SuperDrive, and Apple’s innovative
iLife applications. All this in an amazingly compact all-in-one
system—eMac has everything you need for a computer lab
or teacher’s desk.
Key Features
Display brilliant images. The 17-inch (16-inch
viewable) flat CRT display provides 40 percent
more screen viewing area than a 15-inch CRT
display, with photorealistic colors and crisp,
clear images.
Power the digital classroom. The 1GHz
PowerPC G4 processor with Velocity Engine
delivers accelerated performance, making the
most of all your applications. It even encodes
DVDs in real time.
Create, burn, and play DVDs. The revolutionary 4x-speed SuperDrive makes it easy to
burn CDs and DVDs, and now you can burn
professional-looking DVDs twice as fast.1
Display vivid graphics anywhere. The ATI
Radeon 7500 graphics processor with 32MB
of dedicated graphics memory delivers over
1 billion pixels per second for rich 2D and 3D
graphics. And now you can connect to almost
any type of display device via built-in VGA,
composite, or S-video display capabilities.2
Connect in seconds. Using FireWire and
USB, eMac automatically recognizes most
printers, cameras, digital music players, and
other peripherals. With Ethernet and modem
built in, connecting to the Internet is a snap.
Get unwired. With AirPort Extreme, you
can connect wirelessly to the Internet from
anywhere in your classroom, network all of
your campus Mac and Windows computers,
and even share a USB printer.3
