Yes, and they claim to have reduced the flare / reflections on the monitor by 75%.

The thinner design will mean Apple will have to under clock the CPU even more to control the heat dissipation from the processor.

...and no disc drive.....but an option for Fusion Drive......(whatever that is)???

Fusion Drive sounds like a good concept.

A mixture of a flash drive and traditional hard drive.

Disk intensive items, such as the OS are stored on the flash drive making using them quicker.

Additionally it will detect that you use, say, CS6 more than iPHOTO and switch CS6 to the flash drive and iPHOTO to the hard drive.

All in the background, nothing for the user to do.

They really look nice but sticking mobile gfx chips in them is rather lame and not much you can do to upgrade, never mind under clocking the cpus to run cooler. So what you have is a mac mini stuck inside a screen.
Before you say it no im not anti mac as there is apple devices in the house, I built my i7 pc to run os x mountain lion and windows os's on ssd drives natively + 27inch panel same as what is in the imacs for em just over 1k nice to have expansion and choice. Only draw back I cant get support from apple.

What I and lots of other people have done is not everyones cup of tea all the same.

That is not good indeed if that's the case.

Looks nice but horrifically over priced for a "tool" which is what it is as far as I am concerned!

I have several camera lenses that cost more than the iMac, and they are just a " tool " as well Wink

I think the look of them is starting to get a bit dated, when they first came out they looked ultracool. I doubt I'd get one even if they were really cheap, I like to use a multi-monitor setup. I like a computer that is a powerful workstation rather than an underpowered overpriced ornament for browsing Facebook Grin
