New iMac looks like an enlarged iPod with no separate CPU

Apple’s new iMac is a piece of beauty

Apple today launched the latest iMac series in the market. And the new iMac are a shocker too. Being touted as computers made by the makers of iPod, the new iMac is looks totally unlike the earlier versions. In fact, it does not have a visible CPU! Everything has been integrated in a admittedly weird looking 2″ thick LCD screen which apple claims to be the ‘worlds thinnest desktop computer’. Seriously thinking the first iMac showed the world they could make a computer the size of a CRT monitor… Today they made iMac the size of a Laptop!

From the Apple’s Website:

The entire computer, including a G5-based logic board, slot-loading optical drive, hard disk, speakers, and even the power supply — dwells inside the enchanting display.

Apple claims the iMac will run very quietly (~25db), making it suitable for all locations in the home. Its I/O ports are neatly designed on the computer; it features 5 USB ports and 3 Firewire ports. Interestingly, Apple offers “internal support” for Airport Extreme cards, yet does not ship with them as standard – the same is true for its support on Bluetooth – you need to buy the extra card, but it integrates with the iMac G5. It also has built in Ethernet ports (10/100). The system packs a SuperDrive (DVD/CD writer combo), up to 2 gig of DDR 400mhz RAM and up to 250 gig of hard drive space (SATA). The new iMac also has an AGP 8X nVidia based (GeForce FX 5200 Ultra) graphics solution.

And it is extremely good looking!
