PostPosted: Fri Apr 13, 2007 10:43 am    Post subject: New iMac Idea! Reply with quote

It just came into my head one day about what the new iMac could be like, then i thought it could be like the iPhone.

It could look like the iMac G4 without the domed base, glossy touch screen, still with the keyboard and mouse. But multi-tasking would be a snap. Web surfing would be so much easier, as well as playing games. Using photoshop would be so much more productive. Coupled with multi-touch the possibilities would be endless.

This could prove to be a real big hit.

Any thoughts?

Robin

Are you thinking of like a touch-screen iMac? If so, PhotoShop would be a dream on that machine.

Yes, touch-screen. I think there's real potential with this, with the multi-touch technology Apple has made.

There's always this current option for touchscreen Photoshop and graphics work:

I mean just like the iPhone; you only use your fingers and can detect accidental touches to the screen.

This might be a possibility, but I don't know how much i'd like one. I really like the current iMacs, but they are getting a little old. I hope Apple brings back the look of the G4 iMac, I loved the floating screen look.

I know what you mean, i really like my iMac, but it's getting too slow. Right now it's converting a DVD to MP4 and it's just about managing 7-8 frames a second Sad

I wish they'd bring back the G4 iMac's style too. Absolutely loved it.

Maybe one day it'll be reincarnated in a new form.

Yeh Very Happy Do you think it would look nice as just the screen? like the current iMacs but with that extra part at the bottom below the screen.

Eliminating the chin would always be good. But, where would Apple show off the Apple Logo?

Good point Very Happy Well they could always put it under the screen and put the iMac name on the back. I would like to see apple to bring back the plastics they used of the G4's, it had a smooth matte feel to it.

but it'll probablt still be the same thickness (or thicker) than the current iMacs. But still a glossy touch screen to work with would be such fun.

I personally think so. But it wasn't the simplicity that I loved - I loved the flexibility of movement.

Perhaps if they could find some sort of compromise between the current and G4 iMacs. Use some sort of base without having bulky components (but heavy enough to be secure), and have a floating screen.

I think the components could probably be behind the screen and the arm or stand that holds it up will be more stiff. So it can take the continuous prodding from fingers.
