No optical drive?

I like the article, say the base model is cheaper and better then apples, then goes on to say prices haven't been released yet?

"Intel Core i3 2.4ghz"

That means **** all. Give us some real specs.


Edit: You can get the baseline iMac for $1100US (using US because I assume its referring to the USD price).
Specs:
i5 2400 2.5ghz Quad Core
4gb DDR3
500gb HDD
6750M 512mb Graphics
DVD-RW

From what I can make out the baseline "Vizio" has:
i3 ? 2.4ghz Dual Core (there are no quad core i3's?)
4gb DDR3
500gb HDD
Intel 4000 HD Graphics (Only the i7 model supports the 640m)
No optical drive

Cheaper, maybe. Better? No. Seeing as they only claimed the baseline model is cheaper I'm going to assume that the other models aren't (wouldn't it make sense to claim that they are all cheaper than the Apple equivalents? maybe they dont have pricing yet?)

You just have to look at the URL for about 1/2 a second to realize how stupidly biased this article is going to be.

27" i7 model 1,349.99
27" i5 model 1,249.99
24" i7 model 1,249.99
24" i5 model 1,049.99

I presume they are US dollars.

This is the very base model and the cost effective as well. It is best for the general PC users and way much cheaper and better than Apple iMacs.

Going off Iantech's pricing the cheapest 24" i5 model is only $50US cheaper than the cheapest iMac. Fail much?

Similar hardware
Similar price
Superior software.

looks like a win to me.

No doubt once these hit the market Apple will raise their prices to enhance the wank factor.

yes yes, Almost clones of each other, But ours is much more expensive.....Mike Hoskins would buy one in a flash.

I really need to play with a decent Mac one of these days to find out what all the fuss is about - every time I get to use one it is a 2 year old (or older) low end model & I get very frustrated by how slow they are compared to a windows PC of similar specs. It is like they are running McAfee.

No, because stupid people will still buy MACS simply because of the name... and the OS.

Likely only if the customers care for looks and nothing else.

Since you've raised that aspect of things, have a look at this (http://dottech.org/tech-news/73155/mac-owners-pay-more-to-stay-at-hotels-click-on-more-ads-and-bargain-less-than-pc-owners/) -it's a bit long but reinforces your argument
