I agree, if the cube was cheaper, I would have gotten one right away! But the whole problem was it cutting into the iMac SE margins... That's why apple couldn't lower the price "enough".Originally posted by Xapplimatic
Looking at the overwealming response to the new iMac, I can't help but wonder if Apple would have had a bigger success with the cube if they had thought to make a high-end iMac out of it by attaching a floating screen to it like today's iMac.. I think it was mostly the price that made it anemic.
you read Geometry wrong, a square has 4 sides, a cube has 6....DNA wrote,
...when I read geometry they said the cube has 4 sides, so one with 8 sides wouldn't really be a cube, right? Unless we're five-dimensional or something...
Just about what I was going to put in. I have torn down an iMac (crt, not lcd screen) to replace a part before. That leads me to believe that it can be done, if needed. Apple doesn't want people getting into the guts of the new iMac, which I can understand. If you did, you could mess it up and if the tech you brought it to noticed, or Apple did, goodbye warranty service. At least for that instance. That is why Apple has a list of user installable parts, things that they have no issue with people doing.Originally posted by tk-421
Actually, you can. Underneath the bottom plate, there are 4 more screws. The case flips open to reveal the logic board and internal ram, etc.... I wouldn't go further if you're not Service Tech. though. It gets complicated from there.
A service document has been floating around - and there was a link to it from a MacRumors news article - which described in detail how to open an iMac... the link has since gone dead however.Originally posted by insidesource
I work at an Apple reseller tech and so far there has been no breifing on how to get to the insides but we do know that we are getting a new tool to dettach the neck that connects the LCD Display to the cpu.
