Does the 2013 iMac uses Corning Gorilla Glass?
No. Why should it? It is not made for touch or even handling with one hand and in need of impact protection.
I believe there is no glass in front of the iMac, just plastic.
I was going to clean my screen for the first time in 3 months, and decided to check it. There are some smal scratchs and a large one, superficial, but there.. I wonder if it is ease to scratch.
My 2009 Macbook Pro has zero scratches and I clean it with no care at all.
Sony uses CGG on its XBR Bravia line. My 55" TV have it. Why not an iMac?
ifixit calls it a glass panel for the 2013. Apple called it a glass panel on the warranty paperwork for my 2009 iMac from when Apple replaced the display a couple of years ago. However, neither states what type of glass it is.
You believe incorrectly. The outside surface on iMac display has been glass since 2007, when Apple moved away from the white plastic case.
- not gorilla glass - in fact, the glass panel is non-tempered glass, and quite fragile when removed from the case.
Ok, thanks for the correction, for some reason I thought it was plastic
Here is an interview on Bloomberg News with Corning CEO Wendell Weeks talking about Gorilla Glass, Steve Jobs, Apple and flexible glass. From 2013
The link is from the Corning Web site HERE.
The video is at the link below. Yes, indeed, Apple uses Gorilla glass. Watch the whole video, especially the comments near the end (starting minute 5:06). Also starting minute 0:30.
No one would dispute that Apple uses Gorilla glass on mobiles.
But, the OP was asking about iMacs, where that tech would be way overkill.
Whoops. Responded to wrong thread where some were still questioning it.
