Phil really rushed through that to get to the iMac refresh. The iMac has gone through 7 generations, with "each one better than the last." The new one is incredibly thin. "It's stunning from every side. Edge-to-edge glass... Would you like to see one in person?" "The most beautiful Mac we've ever made."

And here comes the specifications. At the edge, its only 5mm thick. It features no optical drive, an IPS screen, and all of the internal components have been "re-engineered."
