iMac power switch

The new iMac power switch is on the back to the left.
Any opinions on this?

I thought it was ridiculous until I saw it in person. The thing is, with the low power consumption of sleep mode and the high stability of OS X, there isn't really any reason to ever turn the thing off and on; you can just let it sleep at night and have it instantly on in the morning. Or vice-versa, if you're nocturnal.
