Setting a new design standard for the computer industry, Apple takes a bold, exciting and purely geometric move from the successful desktop iMac. The new iMac is designed around a 15-inch LCD flat panel display that is connected to a hemispherical computer base by a robustly constructed stainless steel neck, which doubles as a carrying handle. The adjustable neck can be moved with a touch of a finger to glide into precise height and viewing angle. The 10.6-inch base houses a custom designed circular logic board, a Superdrive to burn DVDs, a 3.5-inch hard drive disk, a power supply, two FireWire ports and five USB ports.
"Apple does it again! Innovation, ease of use, aesthetics and fit and finish are all expected from Apple. The new iMac exceeds expectations in each of these dimensions. The I-Mac is a paradigm shift that will be copied, but is unlikely to be surpassed." — Jack Beduhn, FIDSA
