iMac Touch concept incorporates a touchscreen, iOS, and Siri

[vodpod id=Video.16427916&w=650&h=350&fv=]

“You can converge a toaster and refrigerator, but these things are probably not going to be pleasing to the user”- Tim Cook on Windows 8 and touch-friendly PCs at Q2 earnings.

Disregarding Cook’s statement for a second, here is an iMac touch concept sent by 9to5Mac reader and 3D animation student Joakim Ulseth. The mockup shows how he thought a redesigned iMac could incorporate a touchscreen and iOS-like features. The overall concept is based on an Apple patent published in 2010 that detailed an iMac with adjustable “Flex base.” This is what Ulseth imagined would be inside the next-gen device:

Apple iMac Touch with Flex Base running both OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion and iOS5– ”Power at your fingertips”


Retina-Display: The 27-inch iMac Touch features 4096-by-2304 HD resolution. The resulting pixel density — 174 pixels per inch — makes text and graphics look smooth and continuous at any size. Siri: The intelligent assistant that helps you get things done. Ivy Bridge: Intels new Ivy Bridge i5 and i7 processors. Thunderbolt: Two Thunderbolt ports for high speed data transfer.

And, before you unleash the hate:
