When the new LCD iMac appeared on the cover of Time, my reaction was quite similar to the one I had when the original was introduced. I was not thrilled by the chrome and white style of it, but it struck me that separating the screen from the base was a great design approach. I liked the concept, a lot. This thing is so much lighter and smaller than the original iMac. This is the same kind of improvement the iBook went through when it got reduced in size and weight. I am also hooked on the sharpness and contrast of LCD screens. I finally gave away my last CRT monitor this week. But, I don’t feel confident that the LCD iMac will have the same initial success the original did, because the price went up, not down as it did with the all new iBook.
