The hardware repair wizards at iFixit just completed their teardown of Apple’s new iMac. The most notable change in the new desktop is the design. The new iMac is only a few millimeters thin at the edges, although there’s a larger bulge in the back that houses most of the important components. 

Take a look at the gallery below to see some of the most important new elements of the iMac.

Off goes the screen!

Now we get a look at the iMac's guts. It's amazing that Apple was able to cram so much in a such a thin body.

You can get an optional Fusion Drive with the iMac that is part traditional spinning hard drive and part solid state drive. That means you're going to get faster performance.

There's a dual-microphone for noise cancelation. This will make your video chats sound better.

A look at the RAM. iFixit says users can replace it, but it's a pain in the neck.

Here's the iMac casing without any hardware components.
