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.

I remember this from "back in the day"...

"Amstrad decided to alter the PC by simplifying its design and reducing its power consumption. As a result, they were able to remove the power supply from the main case and feed it with power from the monitor instead. This eliminated the need for a cooling fan ... it was only a matter of time before anti-Amstrad FUD came along. Thus, unsubstantiated rumours such as that Amstrads overheated and malfunctioned as a result of not having a cooling fan, forced Amstrad to install -useless- fans in their machines where there was no power supply to be found. This illustrates how powerful FUD tactics are because they caused Amstrad to give up one of its advantages over the rest of the market just to alleviate the impression of unreliability it had been smeared with."
