Apple once again proves that your computer can be a stylish work of art that you won't mind showing off.

Last week, Apple debuted the latest iMac and its chic overhaul. The latest generation underwent a rigorous swanlike transformation and is now slimmer than ever with scratch-resistant glass, professional grade aluminum case, a cheaper sticker price—and it's recyclable. This new model is the best looking iMac yet and would make a stylish addition to any home or office.

But what about the ad campaign? Is the slogan for Apple's new iMac pro-eating disorder? Emblazoned across Apple.com, it reades: "You can't be too thin. Or too powerful." In our overly body conscious society, is Apple crossing a line? Or is it just hinting that its next big product will be an easy-to-use and chic calorie counter? Or Steve Jobs is penning a diet manual called "The Apple Diet?"

Here are the geeky details on the iMac for Apple-philes:

It is available with a 20" or 24" LCD screen
2.0ghz or 2.4ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processors.
1GB SDRAM
250-320GB Hard Drive
8x Super Drive (Read and Write CD and DVD with double-layer support)
Airport Extreme Wireless Card
Built-in iSight Camera
Bluetooth
Built-in speakers
Redesigned keyboard
Mighty Mouse

$1,199–$1,799 at Apple.com
