I like to identify them in terms of design because it is the easiest way for a person to identify an iMac. When we look into the early generations of iMac, we found that their design is radical at their times: the original iMac is made by translucent plastic with a tear-shaped body; the iMac G4 is dome-shaped with a LCD panel erecting upon it; the iMac G5 has all of the components enclosed at the back the LCD.
How about those after iMac G5? It seem to me that Apple has made no headway: the designs are much alike with merely fine-tuning in material use, a wider screen, a thinner body, and faster CPUs. Is that really an evolution?
Really hope the next iMac will make me say WOW.
