The iMac G3 had been a hit in the education market, but the iMac G4 – with its seemingly floating flat panel display – was just too expensive for a lot of school systems at the time. Apple’s solution was to create one of the heaviest Macs ever, the 50 lb. white eMac is built around a heavy 17″ CRT display. And for four years in a row, a new eMac was announced in mid-Spring that schools could order in plenty of time for the next school year.
