Having been using my wife's Mac recently, a dual-processor G5 from '04, for some lightweight iMovie editing, I've become intrigued by the prospect of buying a new, Intel-bas Mac. But I find myself a bit frustrated that Apple doesn't sell what I consider a normal, mid-range Mac. The mid-range price tier, $1500 - $2500, are the iMacs. They are elegant, attractive designs. But they are essentially laptop computers with high-pricing and upgrade options to match. Not my ideal layout. The tower versions, with more traditional PC form factor, suggest what I want. But with Xeon CPUs, meager graphics card, and $3000+ pricing, they priced beyond my means, and ill-designed for my hobbyist, gaming, office-style interests. I wonder if Apple would again make a mid-range PC, tower or desktop style, in the $1500 - $2000 range, available without keyboard or mouse? I don't think they've had such a machine since the PowerMac days, 604 processors, and the ill-fated clones.
