Apple Puts Power Mac G4 Cube on Ice, Minitowers is Product Choice of Most Buyers
Press release from the issuing company
CUPERTINO, Calif., July 3 Apple today announced that it will suspend production of the Power Mac(TM) G4 Cube indefinitely. The company said there is a small chance it will reintroduce an upgraded model of the unique computer in the future, but that there are no plans to do so at this time.
"Cube owners love their Cubes, but most customers decided to buy our powerful Power Mac G4 minitowers instead,'' said Philip Schiller, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.
The Power Mac G4 Cube, at less than one fourth the size of most PCs, represented an entirely new class of computer delivering high performance in an eight-inch cube suspended in a stunning crystal-clear enclosure.
Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh. Apple is committed to bringing the best personal computing experience to students, educators, creative professionals and consumers around the world through its innovative hardware, software and Internet offerings.
