A relatively negative The San Jose Mercury News review applaudsApple for its engineering prowess but calls the new iMac anevolutionary improvement, not revolutionary. “The reviewer’s guide supplied by Apple proclaims: ‘The new iMac is a radical departure from any computer that has come before.’ How sad that Apple would believe that, or expect its customers to believe it. A pivoting screen and quiet fan are welcome improvements, not earthshaking changes.”
