    What the hell?

    Looks like crap inside. Where is the CPU?

    I think that's why it's not user accessible? :rolleyes:

    The old one was much better in this regards. The new one is basically a laptop on a stand now. The old one was at least fairly serviceable.

    Three screws and it was open - I'm guessing that is no longer the case.

    The price to pay for getting it smaller.

    I wonder if the new fan makes a less annoying sound.


    iGary: The CPU must be under that metal cage to the left.

    I'm quite upset about this;

    When I opened up my revB imac for the first time, I was overjoyed to see that the craftsman ship that made my unit so shiny outside was actually followed all the way through to the end; making the middle of the unit clean and tidy with the gorgeous "G5" metal housing for the processor and such.

    With this, it looks like a small bomb has combusted in the middle of the unit. If this is the style apple is now adopting I do not look forward to the next couple of years...are we going to be faced with the horror of cables randomly linked and tied to things to save a buck?
