    Apple remotes no longer come with iMacs, you have to pay extra. Charming

    Still a superdrive instead of a bluray drive! Wonder why they haven't gone there yet.

    Well they do come with the wireless keyboard bundled now, which is a lot more useful

    I wish they did part-ex. I'd sent mine back and get a 27" machine.

    Possibly waiting until next time, another new feature for the new modal. Also it might bump up the price allot as they are expensive.

    Blu-ray. I reckon they are relying on the speed of the internet increasing enough to dislodge Bluray in favour of the streaming of HD films. Sticking in a Bluray player could potentially destroy their HD film sales/rentals. These haven't really taken off as well as the iTunes store has.

    Apple remotes haven't been shipped with imacs since the white imac disappeared.

    Most importantly though and something i think most people whose Schools are venturing into mac ownership is the mac mini shipped with server pre-installed. Doesn't have a DVD drive though. So when you mess up the configuration you had better be good with the remote install

    Then you may have been lucky. IIRC they stopped the shipment around about then. I'm not sure if it is related but the Remotes magnetically attach to the side of the White iMac to stop them from getting lost. They don't do this to the alu ones

    But I'm not too sure of the desgin of the new remotes, but do like the look of the mouse...and the 27" imac...and the new macbook looks quite pleasant...and....

    Well yeah, but they look stupid being one of the only companies left on the market that doesn't offer it at all.
    The HD rentals aren't HD at all, and it bugs me that they are allowed to advertise it as such.
