Finally, a No-Hassle, No-Strain Computer: The excellent new iMac cures our greatest ergonomic ill [BusinessWeek]
The patent-pending neck is the secret of the design. ... Rubenstein describes it as "a frictionless counter-balance." It rotates through 360 degrees horizontally and pivots 90 degrees vertically. The screen itself tilts about 30 degrees on the end of the arm. The entire display moves effortlessly, and some clever geometry keeps the screen's angle vertically constant as the neck pivots.Having poked at one at a local Apple Store, I can vouch for the ease of positioning the screen exactly where you want with no movement once you let go of it. It's really something.
I don't need one myself, but if you're looking for a new desktop machine, I'd say it's a real contender.
