There's a limit to how different you can make the ultimate simplistic yet elegant design look. It's like expecting the next generation of eggs to look more simple, functional, and elegant. When you achieve perfection, there's little room for improvement.
Comments like this are getting really old. Can't wait for apple to change the design: 1st cause this design is played and 2nd so I can read all the comments by the same fanboys that post comments like above jack it to the new design.

Oh, sorry to hear that, cause the rmbp is my fallback plan in case the imac is still glare prone... Waiting for them to fix the lags and stutters on the rmbp too, unless their "software fix" will come when nvidia releases new gfx hardware... in typical current apple software development fashion where they offload development to the hardware...

At least lg's panels on the imac don't "feature" image retention...that's something.

I would love to turn one of these into a 27 inch MackBook Pro. Even without battery, it would make up for the lack of a 17.

The photographer clearly prioritizes their computer over a piece of furnature. I see no problem with this.

But is it VESA compatible? I want one, but I cannot stand one on my desk. I have to be able to mount it on an arm and I really don't want to have to either buy last year's model or saw that dang aluminum stand off of the new one.

I cannot believe that they put "no touchscreen" as a minus. To me, that's a plus if anything. I wouldn't want people's greasy fingers leaving prints all over my 27" screen.

People these days....

What a great idea...Apple could make a super thin iMac by putting the hard drive, logic board, ram, ect in a separate enclosure that you could put underneath your desk. No need to have an external optical drive cluttering your desk either, it could be included in the separate enclosure.

Shipped today from China

My order placed at 12:07am PST (right after they started taking orders) with several custom options (i7 3.4GHz, 3TB Fusion, GTX 680MX 2GB). Shipped today UPS from China for delivery in NJ on 20th Dec. MacSales.com (OWC) and Crucial.com have 32GB RAM upgrades for $175 (at OWC that is after trade-in).

So you would rather have a $2000 table to hold a $20 computer?

You know, I didn't even think about that. Apple returning to the Luxo look could be a good thing here. You'd get a super thin display, and packing the computer itself into a smaller rounded enclosure at the base would give you that usual "Apple style" while being easier to work inside of than the current iMacs.

...maybe that's what they're planning with the new Pros.

Obviously you've never opened a thunderbolt display. There is a lot more in them than you think. Unless the made connections at the edge of the display. They will be able to slim it but there are other things in there that are thicker than a laptop HDD.

Best advice I got in school was don't put a 2000$ computer on a 20$ table. You don't want your 2000$ computer to break when the table falls apart.

Maybe get a 60$ table...

The best advice I got in school was not to put your lips right against the water fountain, cuz that's a surefire one way trip to Mono Land.
