The beautiful iMac concept Apple will never make

Many Mac users are too young to have purchased and used an original Apple Macintosh computer, and now it’s too late for them to do so. But what if some of those same designs were brought back to life in a completely unexpected iMac? That’s exactly what Curved Labs did, imagining a perfect mix between the old Macintosh and today’s Macs, and creating a modern Macintosh that might impress computer buyers.

FROM EARLIER: The iPhone 6 might be low-res, but Apple’s highest-resolution device ever is coming soon

The iMac shown in the images above and below is a fresh take on a 31-year old design. Instead of the bulky Macintosh that you’d find no use for in today’s computer landscape, Curved Labs’ iMac imagines a Mac packing the same display found on the 11.6-inch MacBook Air, with the addition of touch support.

The Macintosh’s 3.5-inch disk slot is repurposed to house modern elements, including an SD card slot, FaceTime camera, speakers and a microphone.

Interestingly, Curved Labs also imagines this iMac having a built-in battery that will let the user set up the Mac “at different work locations on the fly.”

Sadly though, this is just a concept, and one Apple will likely never make, considering the type of desktops and laptops the company has been launching recently, or is getting ready to release.

More images and a video showing this gorgeous Mac concept follow below, with even more pictures available at the source link.
