Apple has unveiled its redesigned iMac computer, incorporating a ‘floating screen’ and a space-age, white domed base.
The redesign has been undertaken by Apple’s in-house design team, led by vice-president industrial design Jonathan Ive. The 15in (38cm) flat screen has been created to allow users to adjust its height or angle with a touch.
Apple has redesigned the iMac ‘from the ground up’. Its aim is for the computer to form the centre of people’s ‘digital lifestyles’ at home, as it allows users to play and burn CDs and DVDs and download photography from digital cameras.
The model includes iMac software, such as video-editing programme iMovie, digital music package iTunes and iPhoto, which enables users to import digital images, manage a photo collection and create Web pages of their photographs.
