Thin is in at Apple

In case you haven't noticed, Apple is always on a mission to make its devices thinner. We saw that with the new iPhone 5, and we saw it again today with the new 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
 
Apple is now taking that extreme drive to makes its device thinner to the iMac. The new iMac is just 5mm thin, roughly 80 percent thinner than the previous generation model.
 
It includes an 80211n Wi-Fi, up to 3TB HDD, NVIDIA Kepler graphics, four USB 3.0 ports, GbE, Thunderbolt, and your choice of Core i5 or Core i7 processors. The new iMac also comes with 128GB of flash storage standard, which is then combined with 1TB to 3TB HDD.

 

 
Using what Apple calls "Fusion", the OS and all of your core applications are stored on the flash drive, while your user files and applications you don't use often are stored on the slower HDD. If you use applications that are stored on the HDD more often, they'll automatically be migrated over to the flash drive for faster access.
 
The 21.5" model (2.7GHz quad-core i5, 8GB, GeForce GT 640M, 1920x1080, 1TB) starts at $1,299. The 27" model (2.9GHz quad-core i5, 8GB, GeForce GT 660M, 2560x1440, 1TB) starts at $1,799. The 21" model will ship in November, while the 27" model will ship in December.

Same as before IIRC.

I actually prefer desktop optical drives in enclosures as the slimline units are slower. I wonder if this one is VESA-mountable? And I guess Apple has forgiven NVidia for the shitty mobile GPUs of a few years back, where NV tried to slough off the blame for overheat-related failures to Apple, HP, etc.

I'm surprised this screen isn't touch-capable, though not very surprised.
