That looks like a real nice thin bezel! Does it have rounded corners, or is it the image magnification playing tricks?

Seems like a bit of a flagrant miss for the CEO to be giving an interview right in front of a new prototype machine? Unless they are looking for a controlled leak and feedback?

From the little that's visible it looks like a nice, understated and not-unnecessarily-radical redesign. Would be nice to have front-firing speakers in the 'chin' and I guess FaceID could well be in there as they surely have the room unlike on a laptop? Hopefully the IO is largely unchanged and the RAM door is still present, Apple have been on a bit of a roll recently with solid Mac updates!

Wow, and I literally have a Refurb i9/Vega48/1tb SSD 27" iMac in my apple cart... Maybe I should just wait a few more months.

This seems more like visual trick than new iMac. Combination of lens+bokeh+light can make it seem thinner (see parts where there is detailed zoom on Cook's face and bezel is almost ultrathin). I seriously doubt they would do the interview in front of prototype.

Ironically he's talking about privacy too! ?

Quickly overlaid the 27" iMac and it's questionable. The bezels are thinner, but it's at a distance and lighting can blur edges to make it appear less noticable.

The light are just blurring out the edges that's why it looks slimmer.

Post #13 above certainly does make it look a bit like the light from the windows behind lensing around the display (look at the edge of the silver chin section in that photo and you can see it appears to extend beyond the black bezel slightly, which of course it doesn't actually do.

As much as we are hoping and waiting for the new iMac, we are also hoping that the new iMac will not look the same as this one from 2007.

12 years almost the same look

cannot imagine how big is that. While i'm using 21 inch with another monitor also consider as big for me.

So it seems it goes the same route with the 16"...not so aggressive with slimming the bezels but slimmer and a little bit larger chassis ,and based on that man...it seems def larger than the 27"...probably 30-32"

I'd like to believe it, but I feel the picture is a bit inconclusive. It definitely looks wider than a standard iMac. It seems strange that they would still keep the chin if they decided to redesign it, but I guess the redesign might be fairly modest in order reduce the extent of the changes to the manufacturing process in order to keep the costs down.

Any place but here or there....
The Adobe image looks doctored to me. ? Still, I could see the iMac Pro getting a cosmetic change a la 16” MBP.

That said, I care less about the bezel and more about updated internals and cooling system for the regular iMacs.
