    While we wait, I tried to figure out how it will look like

    - Dual camera for FaceTime depth of field (cam relocated at the bottom)
    - Touch bar
    - Faster & slimmer!

    :rolleyes:

    That touchbar on the bottom bezel looks ridiculous.

    TBH I can't see any chance the Touch Bar would ever be on the iMac. :eek:

    I don't think it looks too bad although seems like it would be an odd design choice.

    Render a near bezel less model and get yourself a million "likes". Lol

    How about one with less chin?

    This is one I posted in 2012 before Apple released the Retina iMac:

    While we're at it, here's another beautiful design.

    Though part of me wonders if they're pushing Mac Pro users towards iMac and unifying their desktop line, it might make more sense for the next design to put internals in the base again. Maybe not quite as sleek but could allow an ultra light display and more room for higher end internals to breathe.

    I think they should redesign the stand so they could move electronics in it. Like the Surface studio, Dell, or HP envy.

    Put the borderless screen above and a larger base. It would even be nicer if you could detach the monitor from the stand and swap the stand for a more powerful one and keep the screen.

    Not only that, Steve says touch screens are useless. I'd expect a new Mac keyboard with built-in screen before Apple would break one of Steve's sacred rules.

    This is a awesome looking iMac. It's just made the current version look ancient! :) Here's hoping whatever they've designed is at least as good as this.

    They'll never put depth of field effect on an IMac and they'll never use that same design for a touchscreen (the ergonomics would be awful).

    would love to see this ! I am looking forward to see what they release although I am not super excited as I would put money on a minor refresh with a new rear section for the change of ports. Having said that though if they don't change it now when will they as the desktop range certainly needs an injection of excitement given the last 4 years.

    Touchbar won't be on the screen, it will be on a new BT keyboard replacing the F keys.

    Why have a touch bar on the screen? Doesn't make sense given's apple's desire to avoid a touch screen. Put it another way, what advantage does a touch bar on the screen have over a full touch screen implementation?

    it was mean't to be serious in the first place! like the dual cameras in the apple logo! :)

    But I always wondered why they did put a smaller display in the chin to display their widgets.

    The sad thing is that if this form factor was selling well like in days of old, it would probably be something like this by now. Well there is always hope for next year and the year after and so on...

    I don't think there will be a redesign, a spec update yes. Also there are rumours that they are looking to putting the Touch Bar and Touch ID into the keyboard for the iMac. So maybe the function keys on the iMac keyboard are removed and replaced with the Touch Bar?

    I missed the dual camera's at first :D. It's fairly obvious a redesigned keyboard might feature a TB probably like every other high end computer they go on to release. They wouldn't limit that functionality to just MBP users. Apart from that it'll probably be mundane spec upgrades.

    Yea, i hope we do see a redesign eventually but i just don't think that it will be happening yet. I've been tempted by the 5K iMac for a while now, but i'm holding off until we get something more substantial like a redesign.

    Aesthetics are more significant to you then display specs on a 27" screen? Interesting.
