The iMac I’m still waiting for

Nearly four years ago I read about an Apple iMac design concept that basically turned it into a docking station for the iPad. I’ve said it before, this would be the perfect system for so many people, especially in education. Imagine a college student being able to carry their iPad that has a fully functioning set of productivity tools, stores their textbooks, and hasWi-fi  access to the Internet. Coming back to their room to study, they simply slide the tablet into the iMac Docking station. How long until Apple acts on this design?
