Interesting that these pictures from the Final Cut Pro creative summit which just ended in Cupertino show up in France.

Design-wise, doesn't look any different from the "regular" iMac line, other than the fact that it's finished in dark grey and there's no access to the RAM.

One very nice feature:
Looks like FOUR USB-c ports -and- FOUR USB-a ports as well.
That's "doing it the right way" (instead of Apple's obsession of late to reduce the number of ports/inputs).

For those looking for an "iMac re-design", the iMac Pro ain't it...

Edit:
Having said that, how much is there, really, that needs to be "re-designed" on the iMac, anyway? It's a very svelte package as it is now.
The only major design change I'd like to see is an easily-removable back panel, a la the g5 iMacs of some years ago...

The chin must go.

the problem is not aesthetic design.. You must buy most of the max or do in windows instead.

I don’t understand the bezel or “chin” haters. Long time ago Apple achieved to offer a clean design screen, with a black frame surrounding image in an elegant way. It seems a lot of mac users are into photography and film post processing. Well... I find useful to watch content against a black frame! In fact, not having such could be an inconvenient fault for designers.
I understand the interest in making portable devices even smaller, but if I’m going to examine a photo or image quality, having a neutral deep black bezel makes sense. I’m not a pro, but I believe designers could feel uncomfortable working on a bezel-less screen.
(And office workers find the chin a nice place to use post-it notes!)

Yeah I dont get the chin haters either, I challenge anyone to show me a more modern design then what apple has put out. I really dont think anyone else really competes from a design perspective. But it depends on what your preferences are and what style you like.

I also like the iMac design (that is with the chin) better than the Thunderbolt display. I also find the bezel to help frame the working area. The bezels can perhaps be 1 cm smaller on each side. Edge to edge display? Perhaps, human have extraordinary ability to get used to all sorts of things.
