This is about the iMac...but im not sure if I shouldve posted this in the iMac section. Just read this lol.

Did you know, the iMac has a little part underneath where you stick the CD's in, thats magnetic? It works perfect for holding the Apple Remote to the computer. Look:

that is pretty cool.

Apple's attention to detail never ceases to amaze me.

I've got an iMac, with the remote, and there's no magnetized area on this one at all. If this is a joke, it's a good one, cause I've been placing the remote all over the sides of my iMac, to no avail!:p

Plus, the remote is plastic, so you must have magic magnets!

Apple removed the remote magnet on iMacs in mid 2007
