iMac shuffle

Good stuff:

The simplest Mac you'll ever use.

Introducing the new iMac shuffle. It’s the desktop that had everything. Now, there’s less. We've taken out that pesky glass screen and carved the entire computer out of aluminum, for extra sturdiness. Why no screen? Well, we wanted to make the iMac shuffle even more lightweight than its predecessors, and make sure that there was nothing to distract you from the Apple logo. For inspiration, we looked to our newest, most brillant product... the new iPod shuffle.

Amazingly Uncomplicated

Taking out the screen allowed us to make the iMac even thinner. Seriously, if we turned it to the side, you nearly wouldn't be able to see it. We've also built in our latest technology - VoiceOver. We liked moving the iPod controls out of the iPod shuffle so much that we decided to replace the keyboard and mouse with the same elegant input device...our inline remote. With the combination of VoiceOver and the remote, you'll never miss your old screen. Who needs all those colors anyway? We've enclosed a complete 72,000 page manual that will tell you everything you need to know about navigating using the remote. Using just those 3 buttons, remote, you can easily jump to any window, launch any program...edit multi-layered Photoshop documents, anything your heart desires, you can imagine doing.

Ports? Who needs those?

We've also taken out all of those unnecessary USB, Firewire and display ports. We always remove at least one useful port/storage device at random from each new Mac revision, so we figured that we'd just get a jump on ourselves and remove them all this time. Normally we replace them with a newer port/device (Floppy to CD-ROM, or DVI to Mini DisplayPort), but since we're so far ahead of ourselves, we honestly just don't have anything to replace them with yet. After removing them, we found that we enjoyed the clean lines of this smooth metal chassis so much that honestly, we just might not bring any ports back.

What'd we leave in? The power button and the bottom-facing speakers. That way you can hear the amazingly impressive Mac startup chime and VoiceOver in all its glory.

It's the same iMac you love inside, with nothing to get in your way on the outside.

Any color you want...The choice is yours!

The new iMac shuffle is available in any color you want, as long as it's silver on silver.

LOL. Thanks Sebastian V. for the link.
