new iMac G5

I’m not so sure I like the new iMac. It looks like something Gateway would create. I can’t tell if the screen can move up and down, although I know it tilts. It is lighter, and presumably faster. I guess all of the cables go up the middle on the back.

I wonder why they ditched the wonderful arm of the old iMac?


  1. It looks to use the same stand as the new aluminum LCD monitors, which don’t appear to be height adjustable, so I’d guess the iMac no longer is, either.

    The ports are near the right edge (as you look at the screen from the front) in the back (not on the side). About 1″ from the edge and centered top to bottom more or less. The power button is below them. I don’t particularly like the arrangement personally, but I could live with it.

  2. Interesting points.. I’m reserving judgement until I see one in person.. if the screen quality is as good as the monitors I saw at WWDC, that 20″ one is going to rock. It’s a perfect, small, pretty cheap development machine, and it can do great audio/video stuff too…

    I have a feeling it’s going to be a while for a PowerBook G5 though.. given the width of the thing.. 🙂
