"Quit rubbing that plastic bar of soap on the desk!"

The Cheat's new iMac, Monosodium Dreams, debuted on July 10, 2006 in the email redesign. It apparently replaced Tangerine Dreams. It is modeled after the design of Apple's Intel iMac desktop computer (but with the Tandy logo on it). While Strong Bad wonders why this computer only has half a monitor, the entire computer is a single unit, including a flat-screen display. He also mistakes the wireless mouse for a plastic bar of soap. Mike Chapman came up with the name during the commentary for redesign.

The operating system is a version of Mac OS X, most likely OS X 10.4 ("Tiger") since this is the version bundled with all 5th generation iMacs. The font used for the menu bar is Chicago, which would suggest a customized theme, since this is not the default font for OS X, which is actually Lucida Grande. Also, the menu bar is missing the Spotlight (Apple's updated desktop search feature introduced in Tiger) at the right part of menu. It is also missing the Apple Logo Menu at the left part of the menubar. The lack of information atop the window suggests that the file is a "Picture Clipping", an image opened by the Finder with no usable extension.
