Im talking about the new design that is found on the ipad mini, ipod touch 5, new iPod nano, and iphone 5. the sleek polished aluminum, thin bezels; available as "black and slate" or "white and silver."

My question is this;

What do you think of the idea that the new imacs, macbooks, macbook pros, etc. had this form factor and design. the imacs would have thin bezels and backs, and the color theme popular on the ipad mini. let me know what you think!

I can sort of imagine the look in my mind, but I'd really have to see it on an actual iMac to know if it's something that would create interest. I think that much color on the stand and back of the device would be a lot to take in. The silver is subtle but those bright colors are maybe a bit much for a large device.

I'm sort of neutral right now but I can bet that I'd still want the silver iMac as it is now over something with colors, bezel, etc.

I wouldn't mind the black design of the ipad mini on the macbook retina and even imac as everything in my rooms is black lol i got a fixation with black i do not know if thats a bad thing.

They just did a redesign last year so if this ever came to be, we wouldn't see it for a couple years.
