So what is so great or new about the 2012 iMac?
Well the first thing I noticed is the thinness of the sides; the edge is just 5mm which means it is thinner than the iPhone. This makes it very attractive to look at and immediately differentiates it from earlier iMacs. It also means you can discuss friction stir welding with your friends (that is the clever technology, invented in the UK, that makes it possible).
From an accessibility perspective there are some important benefits:
Besides the improvements that effect accessibility there are: the Fusion drive that improves disk access speed (reducing boot time by up to 70%), faster CPU and graphic cards and up to 3TB of disk storage.
So a great new machine with several accessibility improvements built-in.
