    1. FFS allow us dual Monitor users to totally turn the iMac screen off with the F1 Brightness button like we can with the Macbook.

    2. Make the Harddrive accessible like the Ram is.

    3. Put eSata on the back for god sake or FW1600.

    4. Make the BT Keyboard, Mouse and Touch Pad with their own USB charge ports (saves swapping batteries and you can charge when a sleep)

    5. SD Card slot? ask most people and they would prefer a Pcie slot as it can do so much more.

    6. Make the stand removable on the 21.5, I would really like to put my iMac on an Arm one day


    Overall I am really happy with my Core i3 iMac

    Exactly. There's more chance of USB 3.0 and Lightpeak (very low) than any one of these happening.
    I would like some of these on the iMac; but, unfortunately I think Apple are more interested in a touch iMac.

    I hope Imac has the 3.0 USB...
    If you havwe an external back-up drive on the 3.0 USB then would it be as fast as the Firewire 800??____
    Thanks

    1st Gen Sandy Bridge has no USB 3.0 support AFAIK, so I doubt Apple would implement USB 3.0.

    Firewire 1600? Maybe.

    Apple will almost certainly wait until the Intel chipset has USB 3.o.
