A stable of new iPads wasn't all Apple had up its sleeve today. The folks in Cupertino have also been hard at work on a desktop update, and the iMac is the beneficiary. If you'll recall, Apple quietly trotted out a more affordable version of the machine back in June, but this fall's release packs ...

At first glance, this minimal iMac setup from Philip Pryke looks ordinary, but it isn't until you glance behind the CNC plywood desk that some clever engineering comes to light. Fashioned into the desktop is a groove that fits the base of the iMac, holding it in place and allowing the computer to ...

Reader Lee Richards was taking care of a friend's Jack Russell Terrier a few years back, and as you can see from the photo above, the pup had no qualms about making sure that Lee was playing with him and not the iMac. Says Richards, "Here is a picture of Bono, my friend's Jack Russell when I was ...

This absolutely unofficial case is still officially awesome. Now all I can think about is an iPhone with a translucent plastic body, offered in a variety of colors. I want one. [Photo credit: Whity]...

I'm not sure what this IMAC building in Denver, CO actually makes, but that doesn't really matter. I'm much happier just imagining that it's a strange Apple computer knockoff manufacturer. [Photo credit: Paul Sableman]...

I don't know the back story behind how or why this iMac is just chilling out on a random sidewalk with a set of golf clubs. Either it's being sent to the landfill with some outdated metal poles, or it's waiting for a friend to pick it up and take it the the country club. I'll choose to believe the...

Probably one of the coolest marriages of old and new Apple hardware I've ever seen, not to mention the Apple II seems to make the perfect monitor stand. [Photo credit: Francesco Zaia]...

If you've felt that the iMac's baseline $1,299 price was too high, you're in luck... to a degree. Apple has unveiled a new 21-inch iMac that lowers the cost of entry to a more palatable $1,099 (£899 in the UK). As you'd expect, though, there are a few catches involved in saving that much cas...

Apparently these poor, defenseless iMacs were just chucked into a snowy ditch when they had outlived their usefulness. That's a horrible end to an otherwise colorful life. Shame on whoever did this, and may you forever be cursed with dropped calls and Safari crashes. [Photo: Jason Matthews]...

This is seriously one of the most creative uses of old Mac components that I've ever seen. I'm not sure a high-temp bulb next to that white plastic is a great idea, but I suppose if it melts that's just part of its charm. [Photo credit: Photo Giddy]...

You would think that, with his villainous personality, Darth Vader would force his stormtroopers to use Windows machines to keep them in a constant state of frustration. Instead, the Dark Lord allows at least one Empire soldier access to a lovely array of Macs. I bet all his trooper buddies secret...

When it comes to saving energy, I think I do pretty well. My wife and I both drive high-MPG vehicles, we keep our thermostat at a relatively chilly 62°F during the daytime hours in winter, and we don't have air conditioning in our home. We shut off lights when they're not needed, and all of ...
