    I've spotted this iMac in a 2016 WWDC presentation and somehow I doubt it is the really old one. What do you guys think?... Do they show up with a 2011 iMac on the stage or is it something new we should expect ?

    It looks like a mid 2011 or possibly a mid 2010 or late 2009. If it still works fine, why shouldn't they keep using it?

    On second look, that's a Cinema or Thunderbolt Display, possibly the current model which hasn't been updated since 2011. Not an iMac.

    If it's a cinema display then that means the keynote is running off a Mac Pro.

    Possibly determined to have the least chances of presenting any type of technical error.


    edit: wouldn't that be Thunderbolt Display

    edit 2: I bet he feels embarrassed there on stage using that terribly old tech. I used that studio display at the Apple Store the other day, wasn't sure if it gave my eyes some sort of permanent damage.

    That thing did not look good. But then again, I'm used to my 5K iMac and my MacBook Pro.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure.

    I highly doubt Apple would return to a thicker bodied Mac. To them that would be moving backwards, they were quite enthused of their move to the ultra slim bodied iMacs, as if it was some sort of breakthrough.

    Granted it was actually worse, because now it isn't user serviceable. And I think the part they forgot is we're looking at the computer from the front. Who cares how thin it is.

    Does the thin thing look better sure, I believe it does. But keep it thin and make it user serviceable. Of course they did not want it to be user serviceable.

    I'm 100% sure that's a cinema display. I can tell from its back.

    Yup, nothing new,I don't think Apple would sneak in an unreleased model in the keynote and risk having it discovered.
