  1. More (consumer ARM) hardware to run Linux for Christmas 2021.
    Godspeed AsahiLinux project, marcan, Alyssa Rosenzweig et al.

  2. I like the return of the colorful iMac line. They should do a flower power one too!

  3. It’s like…an ipad on a stand with no battery, even more so now that the ipads have the m1.
    Far be it from my place to suggest marketing strategy to apple, but it’s like…if I was given an all in one desktop that thin, I’d kind of want to take it off the stand and use it as a tablet. Unless it’s more than 30 inches or so.

    1. Or better yet!
      Let the iMac grow to a 32in size (16:10 ratio), and have the hinge fold down to have the screen staying low to the top-of-desk. Now add touchscreen. Voila!

      You have a Home Tablet, that doubles as your Desktop PC. I think the 16GB RAM and 1TB storage are good, but the CPU is a tad underpowered. Where it’s lacking the most is no support of dGPUs, or eGPU solutions. So graphically your days are numbered.
