Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Apple is preparing the next revision of its consumer-oriented iMac, the third so far, according to sources close to the company. The so-called Revision C box will add a faster CPU -- the smart money seems to be on a 300MHz PowerPC 750, though just to be safe, there is also talk of a 266MHz version. It will be announced officially next month and ship in February. The first revision, Rev B, shipped back in November, adding an extra 4MB of video memory to the original 2MB, upgrading the graphics controller from the clunky ATI Rage IIc to the Rage Pro Turbo and bundling the then recently released MacOS 8.5. Since then Apple has also released version 1.1 of its iMac system software update for free download. Sources also suggest Apple will bring down the price of the Rev B iMac to $999 and debut the new release at the current price of $1299. It's a plan given some verisimilitude by Apple's apparent irritation with US retailer Best Buy's decision to bring the price of the iMac down to $999, though this was soon put up to $1099 (see Apple kills Best Buy cut-price iMac policy). ®
