But there are wonderfully inventive, creative minds at work in their garages and basements this very second, all over the world, feverishly trying to combine the latest iMac - a steal, really, at $1,299 for a 17" screen running on a G5 at 1.6 GHz - with a keyboard that attaches and a stand that keeps the behemoth (the iMac weighs 18.5 pounds, including the stand/base, which must itself weigh at least two pounds to keep the thing from moving/tipping) upright and usable.

Expect instant fame via the internet, on engadget and Gizmodo and a million other sites, for whoever's first.

What fun!
