Mark Kellner of The Washington Times has selected Appleis iMac G5 as the "Computer of the Year."
"Apple Computeris iMac G5 is a very impressive machine. It earns top honors from this column, and might well earn a top spot on your holiday shopping list," Kellner writes. "Even if Apple fell into the sea tomorrow, and if not another line of code were written for the Mac platform, the iMac G5 would still be a great achievement that should deliver sterling performance for years. Its compactness, and Appleis emphasis on wireless computing are two very positive factors. I believe this is a computer that will deliver several years of good use and thus is a good value for the money."
A $599 eMachines systems running Windows XP Home Edition was Kellneris runner-up -- a selection that Mac aficionados would hardly consider competition.
