Meet George Jetson (again)
That was my first impression. It's perfectly logical once you decide 1, you want the monitor to fly free and 2 you want as simple a base as possible. Anything cubic would have felt weird, and a slab would have been frustrating since you can't fold the monitor against it and make a notebook out of it. It certainly surprised me, I felt it was a bit weird, but it's a good exercise in minimalist design, no? I'm warming up to it though it still looks a bit unusual.
added: I assume that the back is the flat part of the hemisphere for plugs and stuff. What about speakers though? Sounds like the "orbit" speakers will be detached. Wonder if the mouse and keyboard are new: the reported "click" and "clack." There is only one Apple logo on it on the base, I just noticed. very minimal.
