    21", but only 19" viewable though.

    Took them another 6 years to produce a display with 19"viewable and 8 years for a display that had the same screen size. Another example of how Macs used to innovate long before it was mainstream.

    Just try shoving one of those bad boys down your jacket in a store.

    Virtually unstealable.

    You say that and I see your point, but just before I started working in my current store, a family walked in on a fairly busy Saturday and unplugged and walked out with a 20" Sony all-in-one, something about twice as big in volume as the 20" iMac. Apparently no customers spotted it and informed us and despite it being a weekend where staff are aplenty, none spotted the heist.

    Very large coat then!

    I used to work in retail too, someimes the more blatant and obvious the crime the more people don't even realise its happening.
