Does your late 2012 iMac feel like hanging around instead of sitting on a desk like an average computer? Apple's online store now makes it possible, but you'll need to pay a $40 premium when you buy the new computer.
Remember how different the first iMac looked? That giant bulge, the whole computer one candy-colored piece? Who had seen anything like it? The new iMac is a head turner too, with a less-giant bulge in back, tapering to an impossibly thin edge, just 5 millimeters thick. It's also 40 percent smaller by volume, and it dropped 10 pounds. But there's no more optical drive. And forget about adding more RAM yourself.
