Probably more cosmetic than practical. Can you remove the speaker and place it elsewhere, even into an external case?
I'm sure anyone reading this is, by now, familiar with the design of the current line of iMacs as well as the iMac G5's.
Just in case you're not, the design aspect I'm focusing on today has to do with the built in speaker, which covers the length of the bottom of the mac.
So, while I was listening to music like always today- and had my hand a little lower than the top-left corner of my iMac. I noticed that there was a very high amount of vibration I could feel that far away from the speakers. The song I was listening to had a lot of bass, but was still only a Musical- so a lot more vibration could be achieved with some sort of metal-band -type song.
So I was wondering if there's anyone out there who can shed some insight onto the safety of having speakers so close to the computing equipment. Seems dangerous to me?
