The reason the iMac is so thin at the edge has to do with the bezel. If Apple shrinks the bezel, then the edge has to get thicker for there to be room for components like the internal speakers.
Below the bezel is the area where the sticky tape is located to adhere the screen to the case. So technically its necessary.
That's an interesting argument. Thanks for posting!Look at the Dell monitors, as nice as they are, their thin bezels created a huge problem for LED backlight bleeding across all models. If iMacs' bezel is any thinner, expect much higher out of the box returns, or generally worse backlight uniformity / dark lit performance.
Even more interesting is that Dell knows this. In their newest 4K HDR line up, the lesser U2718Q which is only sRGB (consumer model), it is thin bezel and as expected is subjected to bleed and some IPS glow (unflat surface perhaps). Then the much more expensive UP2718Q which covers aRGB and DCI-P3 and HDR10 (professional colorist model) uses the good old "fugly" thick bezel.That's an interesting argument. Thanks for posting!
I wonder if the people who like the bezel say so because they recently bought a new iMac.
I guess my 6 year old iMac looks very modern by that account.
The iMac is a tool not a work of art to be looked at and not touched.
Well in that case Apple apparently chose function over form, to each their own. I hope I could say the same with the touch bar MBPs.I care. They better shave off that tumorous bezel by next update next year.
Eh...I never listen to comments like these. I buy Apple products for their good looks as well as their functionality. They are a work of art to me. To each their own.

I don't think its ugly, and based on the other replies, I'm not alone.
