Reflections on an iMac

Apple computers get a chrome finish.


It's enough to give anyone an inferiority complex. The iMac has had to endure insufferable attention to such smaller siblings as the Shuffle, which has been adorned in diamonds and 18k gold--for $20,000 and $10,000, respectively. But now it's the desktop's time to shine, quite literally, albeit for much more modest sums.

Chromac, as you might surmise by its name, will apply a chrome patina to your iMac that would make hold up next to any mirrored Wii. Several other finishes are available too for prices around $400 or $500, according to Gizmodo, but none make nearly as much of a statement in our opinion. After all, as 50 Cent will tell you, chrome is the new gold.
