OK, I was eagerly anticipating the new iMacs simply for the sake having some more computer breathed into Apple, but I'm more in the MB/MBP market. I don't think the new iMac design is "ugly" necessarily, I just think that it certainly could be better, at least compared to what we have seen in the past. This all actually makes me sad because I think it marks the end of the Apple design era that most of us have grown to love. The era known by ultra-minimalistic white/aluminum is, at least for me, what really ignited passion for Apple and made me fall in love with Apple design, especially the MB/MBP design. The iPhone has changed everything. The iPod was the first "big thing," and I feel like Apple are now trying to transform the novelty/appeal/feel of the iPhone into its future products for fear of missing out on the second wave in design and innovation. I think the largely monochromatic design of the old iMac and current MB and MBP represent the high-water mark for Apple's design. So in this case, I think that change in terms of design is a bad thing. The point of my fears here is that the MB/MBP will fall victim to all the bright ideas Apple has been getting as shown by the iMac. I am in love with the current minimalist design of the notebooks, and I'm afraid we have already seen the finest hour in Apple design. I feel like the next MacBooks will have some sort of two-tone design like the new iMac, and it will probably spread. I know this jumps around in topics, but my point is that I'm afraid for Apple's future notebook design.
