    Wow, talk about a revolutionary computer. You can actually carry it to wherever you wish! And it has built in sides to carry it by! Way to go Apple!

    I think the iMac could benefit from some kind of handle, like the old clam shell iBooks ... it's save the need for vapid web pages on apple.com, even more vapid posts to macrumors and completely pointless responses to the same.

    My brain as over flowed from absorbing the mass of information it has just been forced to take in from this most intricate of KB articles.

    There was already a post about that here and a thread discussing it somewhere, but I can't find the thread. Does anybody remember?

    I heard you could take off the footprint on the iMac. Has anyone does this? If so, how? Is it easy? Thanks for any info.

    Whoa

    Waitaminute. Holdonaseconddamit.

    Sides???

    No one told me about 'em.

    Is that an upgrade?

    Did I need to order that in advance?

    How many sides do I need?

    Can I get that from a 3rd party vendor? Or do you recommend Apple made sides only?

    I need help fast. I'm so confused...

    Buy 3d Sides Now or wait for 4d

    I am just not sure what to do. My old sides just are not up to modern specs and I need to update. Would I be better off to buy the 3d sides now or wait for the 4d. How long will it take.!?!?!

    So, will I void my warranty if I pick it up by holding the bottom and top? :rolleyes:

    Yup. Second item on the right. Well, you can't remove the footprint, but you can take it off the stand ;)

    Found it.

    (Somewhat related, be sure to read the warnings if you buy Epson ink cartridges. I had no idea you weren't supposed to drink that stuff!)

    Well, for the iMac G4 an article like that would have been very useful (I think there even is one). You could destroy the arm by picking it up by the arm only.

    Actually, according to Apple's website, that's how they tell you to pick up your iMac G4 - by the arm. I wonder why they would say this if the arm really wasn't strong enough?

    I think I remember reading that you have to pick it up by the arm and the base so that the arm does not wear out.
