Apple announced the third generation Imac today in Paris at the Apple Expo. I definitely think the exterior design of it is a step down from the second generation. The second Imac’s adjustable display was simply beautiful — height, tilt, and angle adjustable. Still, the new one is nice, just not as nice in my opinion. It does contain some nice new technology. I’ve already spoken to another Mac user that plans to get himself one for Christmas — upgrading from a Titanium PowerBook.
It is good to see Apple sharing common technology between their professional and amateur class computers. The PowerMac and Imac now have the same processor, same stand (as the Apple Cinema Displays), same bus for the hard drive. It reduces the differences between computers which strangely makes it easier to decide between models. And it’s better for Apple to steal sales from themselves than to let another company do it.
What do you think of the new design inside and out?
