    The Apple Remote is now a $20 upgrade for iMacs

    Also the standard keyboard appears to be wired with the same form factor as the wireless keyboard.

    Numeric keyboard at no extra charge.

    And there's 4 USB port on the back FireWire 400 removed. 800 is still on the iMac

    Perhaps they are simply answering demand for the smaller keyboard as standard? Most people are now used to smaller keyboards through laptop use, so it's quite possible a majority of buyers will welcome the smaller format with the iMac too.

    Well you can either choose the small or large wired keyboard. No cost difference.


    More choice = a good thing.

    The lack of remote was a bit of a bummer to see. I guess I don't NEED it but it was a nice perk of betting a new iMac.

    Too bad they didn't use the space from deleted FW400 to add a USB port.

    Yup some people don't use it, but I use it daily. Gotta have it for EyeTV and Keynote!
