The iMac’s Refreshed Design

The refreshed iMac. I love how Apple develops a design language through-out it’s product line. As they iterate, one product influences the other creating continuity and familiarity with all their products. The new iMac is clearly influenced by the iPhone just as the old was by the iPod. Not just in their hardware but in their software too. No other company is able to create what is great design like this, Sony tries but doesn’t in the end come close.
There is always at least one caveat. One aspect I would look at closely before purchase is the LCD. I’m not a fan of glossy screens and after realizing that the MacBook we purchased for my mother wasn’t able to display the complete colour spectrum I would spend far more time ensuring that the display was up to expectations (the lack of colour as compared to my Powerbook was not a unit specific flaw).
