    WTF?

    "5mm thick at the edge"

    That's an odd way of describing it. Is it a foot thick in the middle? I've got a nice slim waist - if you measure it at my ankles...

    ""Redesigned from the inside out, ........ into an aluminium and glass enclosure that measures just five mm thin at its edge," Apple said."

    Redesigned to look like it did previously??

    Oi! Apple! Alu and glass?? STILL!! You do know that its been 5-6 years of the same old shite now don't you?
