Apple Introduces Ultra-thin iMac and Updated Mac Mini, and 13 inch Retina MacBook Pro

We'll have to wait for the retina displays on iMac, but finally USB 3.0 with Ivy Bridge processors.

The 27" imac looks like a pretty decent CS6 machine. Dual thunderbolt for storage and i/o, GPU configurable to a 680MX will make the mercury engine run smooth and will probably fair well with after effects raytracing. The fusion drive looks allright, that or SSD only would be a must though to get the best performance. I like that at least on the 27" you can still replace ram yourself, and you can go up to 32GB.

I think the ram was always user-serviceable on iMacs, which is decent of Apple, considering how they overcharge on memory.

5mm at the edge?! How the heck did they fit a computer into that thing? Also, a good move with nvidia graphics, now I can actually put all those CUDA-accelerated features out there to the test.

I'm actually kind of glad there's no retina display yet, so far it would seem to be more of a burden on the system, than an actual aid. On the other hand, seeing 4K in all its 1:1 glory would be marvelous.

The top link is some spam for Google where they SEO their own video of talking heads looking at their webcams talking about products without showing images of them.

The new imac seen elsewhere sure looks killer.

I never got this "thinner is better" thing, especially at a desktop - I mean who care how thin it is when it is sitting there?
You want a beefy workhorse not a design sculpture. No?
That is essentially a laptop within a big screen, and mobile GPUs don't cut it.

Re: Apple Introduces Ultra-thin iMac and Updated Mac Mini, and 13 inch Retina MacBook

That was the first I thought as well, I can understand the use for a super thin laptop or a tablet because that you can take with you all the time but I don't see people carrying a Imac around, it's a desktop meaning it stays on one place and normally doesn't move, what's the advantage of it being thin? I only expect problems with the thing overheating, this is a pretty useless design step, it's starting to show Steve is not around anymore.

The funny thing about the iMac is that you will end up with an external box(es) to house the
a) The hard drives that can't be installed into it.
b) The optical burner drives that won't fit into it.
