APPLE HAS JUST refreshed its line of iMac all-in-one desktop computers. The iMac updates are largely focused on processing power, which nudge the machine closer to the performance levels of what you might consider a “pro” computer.

The new iMac has had the same design since 2012 when the sides of the iMac were slimmed down. However, the aluminium look is now over 10 years old – the first aluminium iMac launched in 2007. Some people have been calling for a facelift, or at least some internal changes that could allow Apple to slim the unit down even further, and perhaps reduce the chin.
