beginning to lag further behind cutting edge hardware - no quad core model, slower laptop memory and video cards

no shift in overall pricing strategy

non-modular design - no part of the device can be reused in a next generation computer, very little can be upgraded

quite expensive - definitely paying a premium for the hardware

not a major revision, performance is not all that different from the previous generation

Introduced in February 2007 and most recently updated in March 2009, the iMac is an all in one desktop computer series designed by Apple. Featuring a 20 or 24" screen, the device utilizes high quality laptop components that allow it to remain powerful, yet cool, quiet, and highly compact. Its most recent update was not a major revision, and has left its alluminum and glass aesthetic completely unchanged. While hardware has been updated across the board (specifics detailed below) the main observable differences have been made in the model/price restructuring. These models have since been replaced by new 21.5" and 27" designs.
