Apple - new iMac G5, even thinner

Apple - iMac G5

iMac G5The desktops are right becoming thinner and lighter, just as I said in Decline of Desktop, Apple is really doing great in reducing the size of desktop computers, making it more or less the same as a plasma television. In the announcement presentation Steve Jobs emphasized a size reduction not just in the iMac itself, but also in the remote control. And truly, a simpler control is obviously more user-friendly to senior citizens, who are more likely to have time on video entertainment.

It seems that Apple is really proficient in designing compact hardware and reducing sophistication, while Microsoft emphasizes on broad reaches and functionalities that simplify people lives. Can there be a synergy between the two, just like what Microsoft and Palm did on smart phone recently?
