Thin iMac M1 Design Brings Problems

iMac M1

Apple’s desire to keep the iMac slimmer has also brought with it a few difficulties. Quite apart from the fact that it is now almost impossible to exchange parts – users also report slightly “slanted” devices. Every innovation comes with a price, here is the new one, making the devices slimmer and look smarter can cause hardware durability problems Apple might have ignored in the race to look smarter.

The repair specialist iFixit put it, in a nutshell, a few weeks ago: The new iMac is so thin that you would hardly have expected a lot of spectacular technology inside. The new M1-iMac in 24-inch format also does without a lot for the narrow form factor, for example, a good selection of connections. The new all-in-one PC is difficult to repair and can no longer be expanded by a layperson.

“Apple’s obsession with thin design has made the new M1-powered iMac less useful by removing connectors and making it virtually impossible to swap out components,” says the Washington Post, for example.

Problem With Displays

The thin design, however, has another problem, which is now noticeable after the first new iMacs have been delivered in large numbers and are available to the customer: It arrives at the customer from time to time. Those affected suspect that the display is not used evenly or has shifted due to transport, for example. If you look at the corners of the iMac, the differences in height of the displays are visible.

In the Apple forum, a user with the following complaint reported: “Hi, I received today the new iMac M1 24 inches and I had the feeling that the screen on the right is wrong below 1mm is not much, but enough to feel it, does anyone else have the same problem? ” Other iMac owners confirmed the crooked display and reported some measured differences of three millimeters, which can now really no longer be regarded as “within tolerance”. Affected users should complain about their computer and request a new one.
