Simple spelling mistake: Dsiplay should be changed to display.

Another simple spelling mistake: Tahn should be than.

But you are correct, it is entirely user serviceable and can be upgraded easily.

Not to say that every manufacturer that builds AIO's computers have copied Apple's in all-in-one computers. Back in 1998 there was very few of any other all-in-one computers when the original iMac was first introduced
Apple always removes certain items from their computers when its no longer relevant in today's computers environment.
Even some Mac people find the removal of the DVD player in the new iMac is a bit frustrating. That said I'm trying to remember when the last time I used DVD to play a movie.
Even with my large screen in the living room I very seldom use the Blu-ray player. Almost all of my movies are streamed through one source or another.
Apple started this trend many years ago when they removed the 5.25" floppy from the original Macintosh computer.
Of coarse if a person is interested in playing Blu-ray there is many different third-party options that will attach to the iMac.
Apple retains his pricing it's iMac line of computers and used iMacs are really sought after for people who are looking for a savings. Most users that are upgrading to the new iMac already purchased with at least 6 GB of RAM, a terabyte hard drive. And of course this unit comes with three USB ports one thunderbolt port and I gigabyte ethernet port. The Display is 21.5-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit display with IPS technology; 1920-by-1080 resolution with support for millions of colors.
And of course this new iMac comes was OS X 10 Mountain lion. And for those who are thinking of upgrading their older PC to Windows 8 you may find OS X 10 more to you're liking then using the Metro user interface.
Some of you may remember when Windows 7 was first launch of Microsoft employee in France had commented on saying that they had copied almost all the features that Apple had produced and it's OS X 10 operating system. Of course you might also remembered he was fired the very next day.
For the bottom line is the Mac OS X operating system may be more to your liking then moving over to something that you have to redo relearn and reimagine.
Just a thought...

You see folks, I am not typing in these comments, is coming from my OS X Mountain lion's built-in dictation system. It's all part of the operating system and it's very easy to set up and use no training is required. Which brings me to Microsoft's latest surface RT desktop / tablet combination? Microsoft is emphasized the use of a working keyboard that clicks on to the surfaces.
I've actually used this system the keyboard is fantastic its great I love it. Just like everything at Microsoft is doing it's outdated before it can be appreciated.
Why type in long business reports when you can speak into a microphone and get 90% of it correctly done.
MS will have this feature next year of course.

- You assume everyone hates the Modern UI of Windows 8.
- You tried to mention every Mac's functions into your comments. This is indeed an advertisement.
- You're not appreciating MS in every way.
- You're appreciating Apple in every way.
Now, from what you did, you may thought you were doing Apple a favor. But in facts, on the contrary, people will hate Apple more than ever because of you. Especially me.

I begin switching from Windows to Mac about three years ago because of frustration with all of the time I was burning getting Windows to work right and dealing with security issues. Maybe Windows is better now, but I certainly like my iMacs.
I still need Windows, so I run it in VMware Fusion. Parallels may be even better, I haven't tried it. In fact, I like Windows better in a VM than as a standalone. I don't attempt advanced gaming in Windows, but I've heard that Boot Camp works pretty well for that.

That's not to say I don't like some of the things that Microsoft has come up with in the last for years. And they have spent several amount of money in promoting windows 8 and metro. Just a simple thing of naming and operating systems and then having to pull it back. Steve Ballmer has spent millions promoting the use of the word metro and having to stop using it must be very upsetting.
Apple is having its upsets over the last year and it's going to continue fighting for everything they've got. The fact that Apple makes its own hardware and software is now something that Microsoft is trying to get into that game.
Just ask the CEO of Acer technologies. This is not the first time that Microsoft is got into making their own hardware.
What's confusing to the consumer is all the different varieties of computers running the same software package. It's a mad rush for the manufactures trying to come up with something that will work with windows 8.
If window 8 doesn't catch on those same manufacturers are going to start dumping what Microsoft is providing.
This will leave the door open for Google, I feel they're secretly working in the back rooms coming up overworking operating system will replace Microsoft windows. If they can come over on alternative operating system that is functional and will do the job this may be their time.
This of course will move Microsoft into the same category as IBM. Take note of what I just said I'm sure this is something that's going to happen next year 2.
If Microsoft fails it only allow Google to get their operating system off the ground. I am fully aware of the hate that some people have for Apple. And most of those people are love with Google. Googles OS that will run both Apple and IBM programs in some kind of virtual mode will be a killer machine.
Guess my thoughts…

If your MAC works like your translator --- you can keep them both --- when Microsoft goes I will go back to UNIX but never to a MAC
