Out of curiosity, I checked around on the internet to see what people's thoughts were about the new iMac. I was a bit surprised, I must admit, to find that a fair number of people seem to believe that the new iMac is 5mm thick -- which is to say, 5mm throughout, not merely the edge. I know that this was the intent of Apple's design: to make people think it was thinner than it actually is, but it is still surprising to me that people could just accept that a full computer is only 5mm deep. Such people have clearly heard the tech specs of the system (because they quote the marketing bullets), but apparently misinterpret them (the new iMac is NOT 80% thinner; the EDGE is 80% thinner). I suppose it doesn't help that the advertising is designed to play up the deceptively thin edge, and that a lot of major sites misreport the issue: http://www.cultofmac.com/197524/app...hinner-imac-starting-at-1299-ipad-mini-event/ It is somewhat troubling in a way. Consider this video: I don't mean to pick on this kid, and his "review" of the iMac 2012, but if such is a representation of Apple's intended clientele, one has to wonder exactly how "simple" computers should be.
