So to make it thinner they are probably removing the 3.5" hdd and the thermals will be even worse than before. Great. This is just what we need in a "desktop" computer. I've discussed this slightly elsewhere and another user pointed out that maybe it will have a 2.5" drive that is user replaceable. I would welcome this, but I doubt it. It will probably be stuck in tight behind the monitor underneath the CPU or something. Although one would think that Apple have learned from the iMac hard drive replacement fiasco that parts like mechanical hard drives should be user serviceable and easily removable. If it can be done on a MBP, then there is no excuse to not be able to do this on an iMac. But what concerns me is that going thinner and with a 2.5" hard drive is not really the direction that was necessary for what was already a thermally constrained "desktop" computer. I am tired of listening to my rMBP's impression of a hair dryer. No matter how amazing and magical the new special fans are, Apple still has not managed to beat the laws of thermal dynamics. Fact of the matter is that the MBP halts to turtle speed under sustained CPU/GPU load. It seems to me that this is the way the iMac is going now too. I am not normally one of the posters that throws their hands up in the air and predicts doom and gloom, but this form over function obsession that Steve Jobs left behind is now getting stupid. The iMac did not need to be thinner. This is meant to be a bloody desktop and not a glorified laptop with a bigger screen. I can't help but feel disappointed. The 6 core refurbished Mac Pro is looking mighty nice right now, but I can't spend that sort of money for a dinosaur GPU and not have SATA III and USB 3. It's criminal. I can't help but feel that Apple is running out of ideas. Simply making their products thinner is not always revolutionary or a good thing, especially when it's not necessary. A well thought out and engineered design that takes into account both form and function would be welcome. Substance over style. I've never looked at an iMac and thought, "Damn, what this really needs is to be thinner because it's a fat pig". Am I a minority in thinking this?
