Does the LG Chromebase look too much like an iMac?

Today in Open Source: The LG Chromebase looks like an iMac. Plus: KDE 4.12 released, and a review of Linux Mint 16 Petra.

At first glance, the LG Chromebase sure does look a lot like one of Apple’s iMacs (minus the black bezel around the edges of the iMac). I wonder if this might be a turn off to Linux users who might otherwise have bought one. Apple is sort of the antithesis of what Linux is all about, so I’m not sure if it was a good idea for LG to make the Chromebase resemble an iMac.
