Now if Apple follows suit this iMac will be in the price range it should be. $999 is the sweet spot IMO. 
 Not a valid answer. That does nothing to explain how the iMac at $1099 with lower specs and $500 more expensive than a Mac mini is a better deal. Its not ugly, if you don't like the Dell logo then cover the fucking thing up. 
 This iMac was already available to schools, businesses, etc. Its now just made available to the public. I'm guessing too that they'll have something far better in the fall across the lineup, and then maybe lower this to a respectable price. 
 Just because someone doesn't agree with what Apple does, doesn't make them a troll. If you want to think that way, I could say well the fanboys have taken over this thread already too with comments like this. It goes both ways dude.   Basically what Apple did was take yesterday's educational only iMac and make it available for everyone. Still, $1099 is too expensive for what this is. Just because its Apple doesn't mean you can lowball specs and overprice it. I bet most...
I suppose for simple people like my dad this is perfect. But, he just purchased the $599 Mac mini last week and I bought him a 23" ISP LED Display so he's probably better off. I also put an SSD in it for him along side the 500 GB HD that came in it. I can see where this would be good for simple people to do simple things. Things are never cheap enough, however I think this should be $999 at those specs. Breaking that sub-$1000 is important for people.
This is exactly what they're noted for. They try like hell to get people to actually buy the product there but I myself too would never buy much of anything at Best Buy.
They may not understand anything. They just get annoyed by Apple to update from iOS 6 to iOS 7 everyday so eventually they press OK or Update or whatever the hell the button says. Then they get told there isn't enough space to update their phone and they have to keep deleting things until it goes away. I never said once that they understand the ins and outs of any update method.    A basic person does all of what you said, but you left out one important thing.. photos!...
 No, why assume they've had Apple products all along such as an iPod? Thats a very poor assumption. You have to think about a general everyday person, not someone tech savvy person like anyone here on AI. I see this day in and day out. I'm not making this stuff up. 
 Yeah, they'll freak out, but they'll get over it. I didn't say not make it an option to turn it back to white. I just said the dark should be the default.
 Because they're not smart enough to do that, nor should they have to be. Simply put an 8GB iPhone is stupid. Its not enough space for anyone anymore.
