    I saw this on the iMac configuration page - it is a $19 option.

    Apple Remote
    Control your Mac from afar with the sleek aluminum Apple Remote. Play, pause, adjust volume, move forward and back, and access menus while playing music and video.

    The Apple Remote gives you total command of your music, photos, videos, and DVDs from anywhere in the room. It works with Front Row — a menu-based, full-screen interface — to make accessing the digital content on your Mac as simple as navigating your iPod. When you press the Menu button, your desktop fades and the sleek Front Row interface takes its place to give you control over your music in iTunes, your photos in iPhoto, the videos in your Movies folder, and your DVDs. Turn up the volume. Shuffle. Skip to the next chapter on your DVD. Play a slideshow, a home movie you made in iMovie, even a movie trailer.

    other than the aluminium, i actually prefer to last version. i don't see why they moved the play/pause button to the side of the menu button, it's much easier to have all the actual controls in one place imo.

    I miss being able to magnetically stick the remote onto the side of the iMac.

    Yup. I have Remote and TouchPad apps. Can't wait to use my iPhone with my coming 27" iMac. Won't buy that remote, that's for sure!
