The speed offered but the $1999 iMac is impressive. Pro consumers will want to consider this machine over Apple's Mac Pro.
The first iMac was a revolution: An all-in-one computer that put everything--display, processor, graphics, storage, memory, and more--inside one simple, stylish enclosure. Countless innovations later, we've raised the bar yet again. iMac includes the most advanced, most brilliant desktop display we've ever built, and it's filled with the latest high-performance technologies. Yet it's just 5 mm thin at its edge with up to 40 percent less volume than the previous generation. To do all that required unprecedented feats of engineering and imagination. We invented new technologies, pioneered new manufacturing techniques, and devised all-new ways to do more in less space.
