If you do lots of writes to your flash storage, it will be dead in a couple of years.
You would then need a new Apple Core. Grin

Funnily enough, I buy my iMacs from John Lewis, I get an extended warranty, for free.

Strikes me as a triumph of style over practicality; a bit like those sports cars where only a midget can fit in the rear seats.  You need an optical drive and I would be looking for blu-ray at that price.  You don't need to be continually picking it up and carrying it around so weight isn't really relevant.  If you are unlucky you might need to service some of the parts and the tighter you cram them all together the harder (and therefore more expensive) that is likely to be.

Re: I want one of these !!_____________________Apple Special Event 23rd October 2012

Having been one of those who suffered from the design flaw in previous iMacs (and had some difficulty with Apple in getting the screen-staining problem recognised and fixed) I'm looking at these skinny Macs with interest.
Have they fixed the problem?
I remember people saying you need a floppy drive back in the days when Apple dropped them. We all managed in the end!
I never use the optical drive. Hate them. I've never had a reliable one on any machine.
But yes, I'm worried about it all being crammed in there like that. Its a giant iPad isn't it?

Re: I want one of these !!_____________________Apple Special Event 23rd October 2012

I use my optical drives all the time on my iMacs, never had a problem myself.
Mostly as an additional backup to Time Machine, and they are much quicker to write to than any USB drive I have used.
I update data ( and many photo) backups to DVD on a monthly basis, kept off-site.
I also edit home movies and publish using iDVD, to DVD.

Thin as the new iMac is at the edge, they do have a bulge in the back to accomodate electronics.
I think, as always, the best advice is to not be first in the queue to buy one, let the first purchasers do the shake-down and beta testing.
