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

    The chin and the ports are things that would keep me from buying one of these Macs. I would have to use one to see if those would be a hinderance. I will wait for the next generation. Thanks for explaining everything so well!!

    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.

    I like everything about iMac M1 except that it is fully dependent on the power source. In cases of a power outage, it will automatically shut off. I am worried that frequent power outages might damage the computer. What do you think?

    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.

    I really like iMac’s, they’re very user friendly for family rooms. The chin doesn’t bother me because it’s part of the aesthetic. And the white bezels are nice to help blend in with most interior designs. I get how it can be a hit or miss with some people though. I think it’s a typical Apple move in terms of design and their target market.

    🤔For desktop I'm an Imac person 100% but when it comes to versatility I choose the surface pro. IPad is more tablet than pc whereas the surface is more pc than tablet. I'm training to be a 🥰computer animator and I've found that heavy software needing lots of graphics works better with my IMac. The Ipad doesn't carry the power I need so the surface is my go to for ''laptop + tablet''.
