The new Apple iMac – sleeker than ever.

Not to be outshone by the iPad Mini, this morning Apple announced the new iMac, and it is a beautiful thing. I was glad to see that the screen has been improved to reduce screen glare by 75%.

The most interest part of the announcement though was the release of what Apple calls the "Fusion Drive". The Fusion Drive "combines a high-capacity hard drive with high-performance flash storage." Apparently it manages your data so that frequently used apps, documents, photos, and other files stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently used items move to the hard drive. Overall this should result in shorter boot times, and as the system learns how you work, faster application launches and quicker file access. It will be interesting to hear how it performs in the real world.

See on
