Apple Computer introduced an updated version of its eMac desktop system Tuesday, adding a faster processor and speedier DVD-burning capabilities.
The latest version of the eMac, part of Apples effort to instill brand loyalty among educators and school children, features both internal component upgrades as well as a lower price tag. The education market has long been a stronghold for Apple, though other companies have been making inroads.
"(The eMac) is a very important system for us, as it remains our most popular desktop for schools and homes with children," said Greg Joswiak, Apples vice president of hardware product marketing. "We think that its a great fit for kids, and we continue to add functionality that we believe makes it an affordable, easy-to-use, digital hub for all sorts of activities."
