How can you improve something that is almost perfect? That’s the big question that’s been on my mind ever since rumors began to circulate about a new iMac model that could improve the current generation while adding new features that would make a team that has never lost its appeal.
What can be improved in an iMac ? We all have things coming to mind about how we could improve the iPhone, even some of the company’s laptop models… but the iMac?
I personally feel lucky to have used every iMac model released to date except the original model. They all had a few things that could be improved upon, but overall they were wonderful machines.
- iMac G3. It was the beginning of the saga, a computer that broke the mold with its design and also made it clear that floppy drives were dead forever.
- iMac G4. With its iconic design, it marked a turning point in the industrial design of its computers.
- iMac G5CDC2D. In this third version the company decided to completely eliminate the computer and its components to integrate them in the back of the screen.
- iMac Alu. Surely the change is less representative, although the new finish (maintaining design) has managed to stay quite well in the almost 5 years that has been on the market.
All of them have been able to mark a before and after in the Mac range in their own way and although it has never been Apple’s multi-sales team (the laptops there have the big advantage) it has always been the company’s most iconic model . So back to the previous question: what can we change to improve it?
Personally I don’t expect to see a radical change in the design of the device , it seems that Apple is happy with the current style of their computers, so I think that in the next generation of iMacs we will see improvements based on technologies and not on the design of the device.
- Improvements to your screen. If rumors are true, it looks like one of the biggest improvements in the next iMac will be centered on your screen. Not only are we talking about rumors of a possible Retina model (at this point I wouldn’t know whether to say), but there are rumors that the next device will integrate a screen with the glass included in the LCD. Currently, the glass that surrounds the screen of the iMacs is superimposed on the LCD monitor leaving a separation between them quite visible, that without taking into account the problems when repairing the terminal (you need to remove the glass to access the interior). Integrating glass and LCD gives us some advantages, on the one hand improving the internal access to the device, on the other hand reducing the parts and therefore the points of failure but mainly reducing the separation between both parts improving the lateral vision angles.

Less weight, less frame, less thickness. It seems clear that with each generation of iMac, the computer is suffering from liposuction that reduces the computer but increases its screen. Personally, I don’t care about the size of the desktop, but there are two things that could be improved. On the one hand the frame of the device is somewhat exaggerated and although it has been reduced over time, if the rumors of this new screen are true, we would be looking at a much more stylish model with a much smaller frame that would not have to support the glass. My real complaint about the device in physical terms is its weight. The 27 inches equipment has a weight of 14 kg, a real joke (the folded table I had to replace is a good example), it sounds silly but I have never understood why this detail has not been taken care of a little more in this model.
- Designed for the user. In every generation of iMac, changing RAM has been child’s play for everyone. But changing HDDs or hard drives can be crazy. Just as in some Apple notebook models this detail has been taken care of as much as possible, it would be grateful if the company made the effort to improve the access to this component. Nowadays, an iMac with hard drive problems is solved in most cases with a 400 euro bill at an authorized dealer.
- Loading area. This is one of the things Apple never plans to integrate. But it would be great if iMac integrated a charging surface into its base. That way we can place the Magic Mouse and keyboard when we’re not using them to inductively charge their batteries. There’s a device in the upgraded one that does the same thing, but it would be much better if it were integrated into the computer itself.
As you can see I’m happy with little, I love the current iMac and there’s really not much I would change about this team. What about you? What do you want from the new iMac?
