    Just wondering if Apple is supposed to include a free screen cleaning cloth with the iMac. I have a 27" cinema display at work and it came with a nice black cloth, but my recent iMac didn't. I know it's not a big deal, but I am just curious. :)

    I didn't got one for my 27" imac either. Did got one for the macbook pro and air. No major loss though as I only used them to clean my phone screen couple of times before they got lost.

    I didn't receive one with my MacBook Pro 2011, but I do know for a fact that they include it in the box. It was just a mistake.

    You can call up Apple and ask them to ship you one. I did and got it within a few days. Although from the sounds of the responses here, they're not giving them out with iMacs any longer. Bummer.

    i7 2011 iMac and I didn't get one either. I was rooting around for it today after I did my RAM upgrade and got some mega fingerprints.

    Harrummphhh.

    Seems that the 2011 imac are now minus the cloth - my work took delivery of 13 iMac's a couple of months ago (2010 models) and all had cloths. Just taken delivery of 6 x 2011 iMacs and cloth is no more.

    Stand by for Apple's revolutionary iCloth. We'll have Jonathan Ive waxing lyrical about it's amazing design and technological breakthrough in cleaning ability and all for a reasonable £19.99. I can see the queuing masses camping outside the stores so they can be the first own the Apple iCloth.

    I'm not sure the exclusion of a 6" square of microfibre cloth quantifies the packaging as "all as cheap as possible now."

    I doubt the decision to include the OS on a USB stick for the MacBook Air was a cost-cutting move.

    The packaging is elegant, minimalist, costly to produce, and excels at what it is supposed to do ... protect the device within. To my mind, there's nothing about the Apple experience that qualifies as "cheap."

    Made from aluminium and smashes your screen on impact.
