Apple Computer Wednesday confirmed speculation by introducing a Macintosh G4 "cube".

The new desktop design, unveiled at this week's Macworld Expo in New York City, is 8in by 8in. The lower range version includes a DVD player, 450MHz processor, 64MB RAM, a 20GB hard drive, and support for both Firewire and AirPort wireless connectivity and will cost £1,799.

A second version will be available upgraded to a 500MHz processor and will come with 128MB RAM and a 30GB hard drive, according to Apple.

Apple also today unveiled a new optical mouse and an improved keyboard that will come as standard across its desktop range.

The company said that it will release pricing and availability for the UK later this evening.
