The new iMac looks great, but it’s what’s inside that matters for PC gaming

Apple brought it upon itself, it practically begged ordinary mortals to overcome its elitist tendencies. And while I still think Macs are computers for people who hate computers, I don’t agree with the wave of hate being directed at their new hardware; I think the new iMacs running the M1 look rather nice. What’s more I think they are emblematic of the potential seismic shift in computing, and perhaps most interesting, for gaming PCs.

The general reason behind so many complaints about the new 2021 ultra-thin iMacs is precisely their slight design, and why that might be bad or at least uninspiring. After all, you don’t. Need A desktop computer should be thin, and it won’t be if it’s an all-in-one where you’ll be looking at the screen anyway.
