The new iMac is 5 millimeters thinner than the last. At parts, the most important change is that now both are mounted CPU (i5 Ivy Bridge) and GPU on the same motherboard, unlike previous models where the GPU was on its own “mini plaque” apart.

According to Ars Technica analysis on the plate are also mounted directly all expansion ports: four USB 3.0, SD slot, headphone, Ethernet, and two Thunderbolt. And RAM memory modules (SODIMMs) are not welded to the system, but would be easily removable.
