Ummæli

  • lol @ every girl ever hearing marques' hermès pronunication and not knowing why the brand is so expensive. it's the most expensive and exclusive designer handbag brand. their most popular bag the birkin can cost as much as a house and you can only buy one if it's offered to you. you can't walk into hermès and ask for one

  • I love that he said Hermeeez because my affordable tongue literally refuses to pronounce it any other way lol

  • “it’s ugly” dont worry marquez i feel you

  • Pronounced err-mez

  • Yes I do

  • is their a weird sound in the background or is it just me?

    • i got the grape man big chin phone ad

  • Yes they are ugly 😝

  • As someone who gave up the entire Windows ecosystem to go for this new iMac for the first time in 29 years, I can tell you that I don't find the new iMac ugly at all.

  • yeah, new imac is hideous

  • Tim apple got high

  • that chin. ugly as hell

  • How come reviewers have still not received the iPad. We are all literally going to receive them at the same time. Very odd

  • I like how he says “Major Announcements” just to clarify that he really won’t be going over the purple iPhone 12 because it’s the same phone just a different color.

  • From which country

  • I agree, having no chin would probably have looked better. They must have considered it though, perhaps renders with no chin came out unsatisfactory?

  • 9:00 "I'm not sure why they did that." Giving all queues that a woman designed it.

    • @kolim jone I agree, it's not fair for me to assume that. I rescind my initial comment. Clearly they're doing this to appease the original "i" products crowd, like the iPod and the original iMac and people loved those. Sorry for the offensive comment.

    • before you speak

  • I really didn't expect that you would not cover samsung unpack at all. Not everyone use Apple. You have subscriber from everywhere. 😡😡😡

  • It's retro styling, I love every design choice made on the iMac!

  • I'm still not convinced why would I need an iMac if I can have a mac mini + better display (+ save some money?). Does iMac provide something more than the macmini + display combo?

  • i got the grape man big chin phone ad

  • I love the new imac super cool and nice design

  • I like the iMac, including the white bezels and pastel, and the chin makes sense in that it raises the screen to a proper height. Also a good place for stickies or to grab to readjust it.

  • They're not ugly to me, but a matte black with powder tech grey or red trim/accent would've been noice.

  • designed for younger

  • Watch when people get the iMac. They gonna fall in love, I can see it already.

  • Not ugly

  • These iMacs are for students and kids. Can't imagine a professionals sit in front of a rainbow colored display

  • You are awesome thanks for this video.

  • Your crazy bro truly respect you but the new iMac looks amazing !!!!!!

  • Does Apple not own a mower? Are those illegal in CA?

  • Ah, yes. REAL customization. Choosing from 8 colors. Much more custom than choosing from 1000s of letter combinations and 100s of emojis. Sometimes I wonder if you think before you speak

  • Get it. 4/20 kek

  • Hopefully one day iPads come with a kindof built in Mac mini, I will be the first in line to buy it. Like the design but a little to wilde colors for my taste

  • I like the colors. Color is never ugly.

  • the macs are not ugly.. I just wish they would add darker tones just as they have bright lighter colors.. for example, matte black, pearl white, matte pearl… just a thought..

  • lollllll I like the design thooo, went hype when I saw the new mac

  • I do also think the iMacs are ugly on the front, and had exactly the same thought about the logic board going behind the screen. Apple touted the thinness with that breakfast table image, which seemed bizarre as all the clear space in the image just showed it'd be no inconvenience if it were thicker. And until they let an iPad run MacOS (even if that disables touch while you use it), they will not be 'Pro'.

  • Yep. The new iMacs are ugly. Completely agree on your thoughts regarding them, should have removed chin and had black bessels

  • I actually like the chin but wish they kept the logo on it

  • Apple product design is not about making sense.

  • Initially I thought the colors were a bit too bright, but I've warmed up to them since. While I like the white, gray, & black modern look that most Apple products come in, I do like the return to brighter colored devices as well. To me they look welcoming or cheerful and they definitely have personality which sets them apart from other devices.

  • this new imac look ugly no doubt, i love the old grey and gold designs

  • The design of the color iMac is meant to make it feel more like an accessory / stuffed animal / makeup kit / toy car / conversation piece than a workstation because they are doing that multi-tiered psychological marketing where the pro user will think it looks like a toy and get sucked into buying a 27 inch iMac pro instead (and then down the road getting an iPad Pro as a companion of course) and the light user will think it’s cute and has lots of personality and is a super desirable object that also does all the newest computery things. It intentionally creates two opposing tribes of products so the consumer will feel an increased loyalty to one or the other. The Pro user feels “more pro” and the iMac user feels “more personal” also in this promo they were pretty heavily marketing it towards girls. Decades ago they chose Bondi blue to look friendly and affordable and eye catching, but a couple years later released the much better spec’d iMac DV SE in graphite which was essentially the first “iMac Pro” (it had double the RAM and a bigger HD than any of the colored iMac DVs and it looked dope and was my workhorse as a junior and senior when I was in design school). Also, I think the colored back thing is in hopes that customers will a) make it in-house portable since it’s now ridiculously small b) will be used in open offices and thus visible and c) the fact that the back color is way too saturated to stare at all day along with actual screen content but you secretly know it’s there.. like in the same way Nike sometimes puts bright and loud designs on the insoles of their sneakers. There ya go G.

  • @04:06 "We made a shiny metal one you can't take the battery out!" That might actually be a good idea! Why not swap the CR2032 battery out for a Qi rechargeable battery? Then once or twice a year you simply drop it on your phone's charge pad overnight & bam, it's ready to go for another 6-12 months, without dropping another battery into a landfill somewhere. They'd be able to seal it up better improving the IP rating.

  • lol what an apple fanboy

  • I kinda like the new iMacs. I like the retro colors, and I don't mind the chin at all.

  • the new iMacs are ugly!

  • Lol my brother needs air tags, he always looses his wallet

  • With how vibrant the colors are on these iMacs, black bezels would look so bizarre and probably off putting.

  • I will be fan of the new iMac when Space Gray gets available

  • I am not that hard of a critic.... I think that removing the chin logo was a big mistake, and I love the colors. Especially the red one. We will see. I think it will sell OK at first, and then TANK when the new larger one comes out...

  • The back shell of all Apple products always look the best. This is Steve jobs philosophy of relentless perfection in all the things of the device, even the things you can’t see. It’s great!

  • I actually think they look pretty cool

  • 100% agree that the new iMacs look pretty ugly. The two-tone body/chin and white bezel choices are just bizarre... Kind of seems to follow the trend of them turning their backs on pro users.

  • The airtag should have been recharge able

  • It’s really not ugly at all dude, you are crazy lol

  • As an illustrator, I can bet the new iMac with a white bezel will be annoying when working with (white) color as the screen's white gamut won't match that bezel. The same problem was with the older white iPads Pro.

  • If you wanna see purple iPhone? Adding more colour isn't innovation wft apple payp*gs wake up🤣🤣🤣

  • air maze

  • it looks like a handbag

  • ٍRemind me if first colorful iMacs

  • reallllyyyyy very bad design ,,,,

  • Hermès is expensive because they are. That’s how they price their work. Don’t like it - don’t buy it. Creator have right to set any price he would like to. For no reason at all. Just deal with it.

  • Ewwwwwww apple

  • The problem is that samsung first came up with the airtag concept apple is good at stealing and acting like they did something but still cool idea.

  • Apple has been Gay-ified. It went from Gayness (color macs), to professionalism with their simplicity of colours and design, back to Gayness.

  • I think the new macs are super pretty, I love the colours and the chin doesn't really bother me to be honest.

  • I’m with you, my first thought was that I was not a fan of the chin and I didn’t like the lighter color on the front.

  • If it didn't have that giant chin and white bezel they would look super cool. Get rid of the chin and white bezels! We are ok with half inch thickness lol

  • I agree the new mac look kinda like 1990s compaq with that extruding bottom chin and white bezels.

  • i love your reviews , i disagree with you when you says the new iMac is ugly...honestly it takes some time to get used to, but the design is simply fabulous..and everything else looks so dated after seeing this...what stop my credit card is that i wait for the bigger screen version only...just my 2 cents..

  • For an upgrade of the imac, was hoping that it would be touch screen. Seems like it’s all visual aesthetics. Still prefer the previous model, definitely agree this new iMac it not attractive IMO.

  • When compared to the bad ass darth vader Imac Pro, the new imacs are just plain ugly

  • Why the fact that i cant plug a headphone jack in the usual way is "fun fact"?

  • Agree 100% with imacs. All and all not happy. Lets see the 27's!

  • *STOP* buying computers that lack removable RAM and storage and Apple will stop making them.

  • Nice video

  • new imac is just a enlarged ipad on a stand

  • Give one to a spouse!!!! Lmao here girl you want a new necklace. Good girl!!!! 😂😂😂

  • I'm pretty sure I'm only upset that there isn't a space grey option for the Mac lol totally throws off the aesthetic of my room to have all these bright colors on a computer unless it's RGB related

  • I’d have to disagree on the new iMacs being “ugly.” It’s the thinnest iMac ever and seems to be the fastest, with the price not being too bad, and you want to complain that it’s ugly because you want black lol.

  • I was going to upgrade my iMac, but, because of the white bezels, I will definitely wait. Thank you !

  • The wife orders the 4 pack. One for me, two for the three kids we have.

  • My little brother could make a better tech video than this dogshit

  • Nice to finally see a update from you

  • I would have loved to see Bondi Blue

  • The iMacs are truly hideous. I like colorful things, but Apple always chooses the worst colors for their devices. I'd like to see a monotone black or gray option.

  • i liked the white bezels...

  • iMac is that ugly. Was thinking daughter would love one. Not sure about my son. Should have had a space grey.

  • They will make good wall art in 10 to 15 years

  • 7:15 No, you are not crazy bro. 100% dead on review, it's powerful, but ugly. This monstrocity is just an iPad on a stick.

  • بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم السلام على من ٱتبع الهدى Remove the annoying intro music

  • android and windows are better

  • I think apple never releases a perfact version of their products on purpose. They release an item bit by bit adding improvements the could have done once in order to make the next so called innovation seems better than it actually is. i think they designed the computer like this on purpose so they can take the besells out on ther next model

  • so it was not possible to adapt mag-safe to those tile clones? wow apple.

  • Luggage. For the 4th one.

  • Yes my 1st impression was it was insanely ugly.

  • Jony Ive lost leads to fugly. THANKS for noticing!!! IMO the iPhone 12 Pro and Max were the ugliest iPhones ever made. So much so I replaced my XS with an 11 Pro instead (looking sublime). But these iMacs - very ugly as well. Yup. Call it as it is.

  • It looks like every other computer that dell and other companies sell.

  • Nice redesign love colour but those white bezels are hideous!
