Why the need to sit a few inches in front of these new mega iMac displays? There's so much display territory that you almost have to hunt for what your looking for. And you don't get a good sense of the overall visual representation being that close to such a huge display. Who would sit that close in front of their large screen TV? I say buy a top notch Mini and connect it to your large flat panel TV. Then watch and compute comfortably from a healthy and reasonable distance as you would TV. The idea of sitting at a workstation desk with a cinema size display in front of one's nose is geeky and a remnant of the past micro monitor days. The future of all home computing is through integration with your TV and audio entertainment system at normal and visually rewarding viewing distances, in my opinion. HTPC is just the start.
