Well I am surprised that Brian hasn't said anything about the new iMac yet. I originally had to let it sink in before I made any comments. Then yesterday I realized that the functionality of the new iMac is diminshed. It may be faster, but it's tied down to that stand similar to the new displays. This was reinforced by a fellow employee who explained how his kids love moving the monitor around on their older machine almost just for fun, but also for function when showing something to mommy and daddy.
I thought, it would be great if you could stick it on a wall, use a wireless keyboard/mouse and save even more desk space. Plus it could be a pretty hot picture frame when not in use. ;)
What was Apple thinking?!?
But today I discovered that, even though it adds to the price, you can get a VESA compatible mounting bracket at the Apple Store to stick the thing either on a wall or an articulating arm, also like the new Cinema Displays. Awesome! Too bad I can't just blow money on stuff like this.
What does everyone else think of the new design?
