Did anyone else see this? http://applexnet.com/images/macworld06/behind-the-scenes/behindscenes%20-%2015.jpg (the G5's on the left that are mini).

I doubt this to be a release as there is no speculation on it but what is it an ad for? Can anyone fill me in?

Dead links rock.

EDIT: Seems to be working now. Wow, I'd be seriously impressed if apple could pull off a g5 that small.

They are external hard-drives.

I think it is more than just a HD. If you look at the second one, it looks even smaller than the regular PM. I think there is a regular PM to the left, but we can't see it as it was cut out of the photo. There is also no CD drives.

Trust me, they are external hard-drives made to look like mini PowerMac G5's. I read about them in one of my many Mac magazines last month. I think it was Macguide New Zealand, but I cant find the issue right now to tell you the company name. But they are external HDD's, the larger one is 1TB, and the smaller 500GB.

By the way, we are talking about the ones in the poster ;) Not the actual PowerMac G5 sitting there.

Also, that's a 3rd party booth. All of Apple's stuff is hidden well away behind those infamous black curtains of death.

(Or maybe they're the black curtains of life?)

As stated in several other threads, they're external Hard Drives. (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=171874)

Thanks. I knew they couldn't be a new product because as someone already said, all the new products are hidden in the back with curtains over them. I am happy that I know know what the mini G5's are though.

Who was I to think that by looking through these photo's I would see something that someone else hadn't. If anything was going to be visible then the people there would have seen it first.

interesting how the G5 PM looks nice, but as soon as you take the height from it it looks ugly

or is it just me?

I agree - they look kind of stunted and clumsy

They look like the TeraByte HardDisk storage units I've seen notice how ports are on the right rather than left.

Either that or they are PC knock offs.

100% external hard drives sorry to disappoint anyone who is wanting a mini G5, come to think of it though a mini G5 would be amazing, a worthy replacement for the mini's

SHadow;)
