iMac touch: Is it inevitable?

At first blush, the idea of an iMac touch isn't attractive. However, the world is changing and, if Apple's AIO doesn't make the jump, it might die.

As an inveterate keyboard jockey, a guy that doesn’t like lifting a finger to use the mouse or trackpad, the idea of an iMac touch isn’t particularly attractive — keyboard shortcuts are where it’s at, baby. Nevertheless, the world is changing and, if Apple’s all-in-one desktop doesn’t make the transition, it very well could die.

Who wants a 21 or 27 inch iMac touch? I get the concept as an interactive museum exhibit or perhaps industrial control system, but not as the computer on my desk.

However, HP and others have been selling touch-enabled iMac knockoffs for years and no one noticed.

Then again, take a look at this very, very well done TV commercial done by Cinesaurus

Now, who wants an iMac touch? It would make a brilliant musical instrument or DJ system or artist’s palette or… Once the idea gets under your skin a little, the notion of an iMac touch starts to appeal…

What’s your take?
