New look to the Apple iMac

Apple iMac 2007

Earlier this month, Apple CEO Steve Jobs reveal the next evolution of the popular desktop computer, the Apple iMac.

The new model features a new aluminium and glass enclosure, replacing the white plastic look.

Personally, I love my ‘old’ iMac as the silver and black colour combination doesn’t work too well. Sure, it looks modern and elegant but it would have been better if the whole computer was either in brushed aluminium or completely black. How cool would that be if Jonathan Ive – the design genius working for Apple – made this?

Despite that, the new 20- and 24-inch iMacs uses the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors and an incredible, ultra-thin keyboard.

The keyboard in particular looks fantastic. I just can’t believe how thin it is and yet feels ever so comfortable to type on. I brought one recently and I am now using it to write this very post! The only criticism will be the Return/Enter key is quite small and the missing Apple button…

But which iMac do I prefer? Well, the glossy glass display looks great when viewing High Definition video clips but in terms of performance, its not a giant leap compared to my current 24-inch ‘Bauer Mac’. Plus I like the classic white look!
