Over the years, Apple has considerably increased the capabilities of their iMac desktop system, and has re-positioned it as their mainstream desktop computer. It has become quite powerful in its own right, and is now Apple’s ‘standard’ desktop system for home and office use. During this time Apple also restructured their MacPro tower model computers to compete with high-end graphics workstations for non-linear digital editing and high-definition video applications.
Because the iMac is more than capable for the vast majority of college users, and because it is much less expensive than the MacPro, beginning with this summer’s Technology Renewal replacements, the iMac will be the default replacement Apple desktop system for Technology Renewal. Any Technology Renewal questionnaire which is not completed for an Apple MacPro tower will automatically default to an iMac desktop.
