I was there, it was lame, they pasted it on with like glue.

I WOULD like to see the 'headless' iMac without a screen tho.

WOW!

How did they do that? That not only took massive internal work, but also, it must have required them to customize the case to get that way cool 2 monitors.

LOL! It would cost as much to ship it. Unless they rotated around and faced each other. That would be sweet.

Read my lips:

The other screen didn't turn on, not wiring needed.

They just superglued it.

The second LCD at the website looks a little sad! So by the glue proposals guess that it's a non functioning twin!

The current iMac shell probably wouldn't be able to keep two monitors side by side balanced, they would have to add more wieght to it and it would just be a waste of time because I don't it would sell well.

It would be cool if it actually worked, but anyone can glue something onto something else. Pretty lame in my opinion.

Yes, it does look cool, but I don't think that it would sell well. The iMac is supposed to be more of a 'consumer' computer, and most consumers don't need two 17" displays.

It looks good though.
