Apple's M1 iMac is crazy thin. It's a polarizing design, but a great computer!

  • Totally agree with the chin thing. But hey! If they'd took the chin and put better speakers with good base and wouldn't it be great to have face ID too than know this it would delay the release of the new IMacs for at least several years. But the guys from marketing knew Marques ideas and for us to pay more they left the Mr ChinMac

  • The chin goes against their new design philosophy, at least with iPhone. Purely for aesthetics, it would have looked so much cooler had the chin and bezel not exist. Everybody wants bezel-edgeless monitors.

  • I predict that PC makers are going to follow in Apple's footsteps in different color choices like they did when the original iMacs came out.

  • Coincidentally, I painted my walls blue in my room. When I got the iMac, it matched the chin rather than the bezels.

  • I much prefer the design of my mum's mac. The back is curved unlike most Mac's. It's like 7 years old and has a 27-inch screen. It still works well but it won't update the apps to the newer versions.

  • I hate the idea of the brick; mine over heats every day on my Mac book pro and I have to have it hanging off my window fan to keep it from burning up. Also this monitor looks too tall for me to use. With that huge chin, there is no way I can sit ergonomically correct in front of this computer. Gonna have to look at something else.

  • I actually love that they have the chin. Both visually and practically. I often have to kinda rotate the computer to access the usb ports in the back and also need some support when sticking stuff in to those ports(I change the stuff there quite often because I do photography). The chin gives you a safe place to touch the front side of hhe screen without leaving fingerprints to the glass.

  • Would like to see how it performs against the 8-core 27 inch Intel iMac with the 5500xt 8gb. My guess is the 27 inch will still beat it in performance and has the advantage of adding ram. Next year I expect Apple to show no mercy with a 27 inch M1.

  • If it didn’t have a chin which you seem so hostile to, it wouldn’t have that colour accent opportunity…it would just be another rectangle. And then all you’d complain about is making the bezel thinner.
