Apple Apple has updated its line of iMac desktops, with new processors and bumped graphical specifications. They also includes an HD FaceTime camera, which is certainly useful. The most interesting feature is, of course, that they include Thunderbolt ports - one on the 21.5" model, and two on the 27" model.

If you could point the way to one that's as fast, as thin, as good looking and functioning as this one, I'm all ears.

I am sure there are faster ones, I am sure that there are thinner ones (and we know how important that extra 1/16" of thinness is to a computer that sits on a desk).

Functioning? Please. When it's not malfunctioning, it's a Fisher Price item, at best.

Good looking? It doesn't look so good to me, especially with that big red fire extinguisher that one must always keep adjacent to it.


By the way, I haven't heard the new MacPro, but my G5 was the quietest dual processor I ever owned.

My friend's G5 sounded like a wind tunnel.


But really, they lowered the price, raised the performance, and I'm impressed enough to consider purchasing a 27", just to run Linux on it!

Don't forget to budget for that fire extinguisher.
