HAHAHAHAHAH Best Post of the DAY!!!!
And yes they do. It's what holds the glass in.
its not just you
this imac and the previous white imac both had magnets around the front.
they were intended for use with the apple remote, so that you could put the remote there when not in use.
but the trick with the change is probably a better use for them.
Holds the glass. BTW, Where are you? I was not aware of any coins that could be magnetized.
I didn't realize any US coins were magnetic either... The coins in the picture appear to be pennies.
I've read US pennies since 1982 are made of 99.2% zinc and 0.8% copper, with an outer plating of pure copper. Before 1982, pennies were made of 95% copper and 5% tin. I do not believe copper, zinc or tin are magnetic, but I'm not sure.
Now if those pennies are Canadian pennies, I believe some Canadian pennies are magnetic.
Either way, there ARE magnets on the iMac which hold the glass plate on the front.
I've got some American coins issued during WW2 which are magnetic.
I'm more impressed with the magnetic glass which Apple uses on the iMac.
Yes, I know there are steel pegs glued to the glass.
why not just get a suckie and have a look?, the one that came with my eyetv hybrid does the business.
There are magnets to hold on the screen, which is not glass but a polycarbonate, but they are not strong enough to hold the remote.
You obviously missed my and my white text
canadian pennies are copper&zinc....
they are not magnetic,, they are made of the same metals as the US pennies.
