Elegant Innovation

HP may want to be associated with the word, "Invent", but I salute a manufacturer innovative enough to marry technology to aesthetics:

Apple's new G5 iMac.

May it be wildly successful.

But... Where's the computer? They forgot to include the computer!

Actually, I'm impressed that they managed to pack a G5 into something that small. Wonder how they cool it?

How do they cool it? Simple answer...physics. Cold air is drawn in by a couple of fans through the speaker grills on the bottom, and then rises through a slit in the top of the case. I counted two fans in the pictures, that are supposed to be whisper quiet at top speed. It's a beautiful thing, and hopefully the turbinesque noise of the G4 era is nothing but an ear-ringing memory.
