While the Apple tablet hype has been in full force for the past few months, the actual tablet rumor has been going on for years. While the tablet has yet to appear, the Mac|Life staff has been hard at work creating mock-ups of the fabled tablet.

There’s no denying that Apple CEO Steve Jobs is a visionary leader and no one would deny his remarkable return to the company he co-founded. But things may have turned out a little differently if his original name for the iMac had stuck.
While Apple works to get a few glitches ironed out in the graphical
displays of some of their 27" iMacs, a judge in California cuts the
company a break with an even earlier class action based complaint
regarding their monitors.
As widely reported in recent days, Apple’s latest 27-inch iMac has had some hardware problems out of the box, and fixing the issues has caused shipping delays for new orders. The company is now working to remedy those problems, complete with a reported apology.
Dressed in blue plastic and built to harness the power of the Internet, the iMac was the first PC that actually felt personal. And it would forever change Apple, the industry and virtually everyone who came into contact with it.
Glancing at a spec sheet, Apple’s latest iMacs might seem like
run-of-the mill product refreshes. Sure, there’s the requisite
processor bumps and storage updates, but an iMac’s an iMac, right? Ah,

are much more apparent, striking even. The new line-up includes four
new machines--two small ones and two bigguns--and we had the chance to
review one of each size for this article.
