I wonder how no one's posted their impressions of the laminated glass display. It's probably THE most important feature of this update. A lot of us are eagerly awaiting it as the end of the glare woes, in that apple has finally delivered an iMac that's not a usability disaster due to their aesthetic choice of glass cover. A lot of us are also in the market for an imac solely for this reason. I know I am, since, as an aside, I am not only underwhelmed by apple's design (last year's design with iphone/ipad prego tapering) again with absolutely no care for any ergonomics in height and swivel adjustment of the screen (the competition is smoking them there) - and it's high time they did care. I am also appalled at their insistence on using mobile parts on a desktop pc (when desktop parts have gained so much in terms of power effectiveness and noise), their use of custom ports for ssds (a money grab with no space saving effects as one might claim are warranted in a notebook) and piss poor repairability, as well as, their usurious pricing which this time, has gone, way, way too far. A $100 increase on last years model with a piss poor 5,400 rpm hard drive as basic, and an added $450, for the benefit to have a 128gb ssd for the os. It would literally have cost them no more than $30 max to stick a 64gb ssd module on the (already more expensive by $100) entry model. It's almost 2013 and for a machine going into at least 2014/2015, and one costing as much it's shameless of them to not put the os on an ssd, and not only that, but to actually degrade the speed of the machine considerably by using the slowest possible spinning available on the market. And to add insult to injury to request another $450 for that benefit, and to hide the ram at the most inaccessible part possible so that means another $200 by most. That to me is akin to theft. For a small ssd for the os, and some decent future proofing with another 8gb ram, one ends up paying more than the entry level 27" incher. Shameless marketing of the worst kind so they can grab another $650 from you for components that cost them in total no more than $60-100. At best a 600% profit margin in an industry that goes by right now with razor thin 5-15% margins. But, since most of us have been waiting half a decade or so to get one that doesn't double up as a mirror, we'll very unwillingly cough up our hard earned cash and be taken advantage of, so apple can stack a few more hundreds of billions in the bank. What can you do, when you are tied to the os... Having said that, as soon as I can, and am willing to put in the time and effort switching back to windows entails, in the next couple or so years, I am ditching them for good, as I am sure many other core users we'll be doing. Anyway, so how's that screen? At least someone tell me they are impressed so they can lessen my pain for all the other compromises and being taken advantage by apple to an unprecedented extent. How's the subjective experience with reflections? It seems the panel (via ifixit) is the same as the previous mac (so I guess all that talk about individual calibration by Phil was his usual claptrap marketing for going with a three year old panel), but how is the brightness settings and contrast tweaked this time? How does it compare to the rmp or the screen of the air in terms of reflections? Pictures appreciated of course. Thanks boys.
