The polycarbonate case is copying the MacBook pro's unibody chassis style and rounding off the sharp edges.  The touchpad is similar to the one found on MacBook Pro's as well.


Mouse and Keyboard Changes

The wireless keyboard and mouse now come standard with the iMac and have both been redesigned.  The keyboard is now all aluminum (body).  The mouse (called the Magic Mouse for some reason) now uses a touch capacitive similar to a trackpad.  You can use the two buttons or drag your finger down the middle of the mouse to scroll.
