Apple unveils next-generation iMac with slimmer design and Ivy Bridge

Who said Apple's event was all about the little things? Apple just unveiled its first redesign to its iMacdesktop in three years. The new all-in-one makes the widely expected leap to Intel's Ivy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 processors, but also represents a much leaner and meaner replacement for the 2009-era template -- its edges just 5mm thick, and it's constructed with "friction stir welding" as well as a gapless, less reflective display that's laminated together with the glass. Screen sizes remain the same and include both a 21.5-inch, 1080p model and a 27-inch, 2,560 x 1,400 model -- sorry, no Retina displays this year. They share 720p-capable front cameras with dual mics as well as NVIDIA's GeForce 600-era graphics, up to 3TB of spinning storage (or a 768GB SSD) and a maximum 32GB of RAM.
