AppleInsider is reporting that the line of educational-use eMacs may be resurrected with a new look and better parts. Straight from the horse's mouth:
Based on a series of proprietary checks, it's believed that the Cupertino, Calif.-based company is aligning component suppliers for a manufacturing ramp of the computers that it plans to initiate around the September timeframe.
AppleInsider is also saying that the upgraded eMac will be encased in an all-in-one LCD enclosure, similar to the iMacs.
