And I floated the idea of it many months ago as well - I'm not artistic enough to actually be able to mock it up though. My idea was basically this - iMac (OS X) when upright, iPad (iOS) when lying down

Yeah. I think the mock-up--questions of originality aside--is quite well done.
You might not know it to look at me, but I'm pretty radical.

just thought i'd throw this up as it is the original patent by Apple - i wonder if it will ever see the light of day, and is it really necessary?

To me it makes sense. There are some applications where a touch screen iMac would be more suitable. Imagine for draftsmen, artists, etc. Even simple web browsing.
