Definitely. I'd say this has to be one of the sexiest tech products ever.

Its part of the reason I bought it. Unfortunately, my luck in the love department hasn't exactly gone up since buying my TiBook. Since I can't blame the TiBook, I'll have to blame myself. Heh. :)

You guys really are on one today......:p

Okay, I'd have to say the TiBook for all of them, although I really like the 20th Anniversary Mac..... as it's a really stunning example of total product intergration.......

Funny though, when Apple released the TiBook and I saw it in magazines, I thought wow..... when I actually recieved it, I was alittle unsure of the light grey/ darker grey thing going on..... then within a very short time, I decided I love it........

It's the whole aesthetic and engineering thing that to me makes it the sexiest!! slim, sleek, clean, and uncluttered!!!

So the TiBook gets my vote........:p

Or the iMac Blue Dalmation........ seriously I have a Dalmation dog, and would love the iMac Blue Dalmation to go with her!!!:D

but I like the threads thus far!!!

sexiest product this year?
would have to be the new iMac I suppose...even though I don't think it at all sexy...but it's the only new hardware...

sexiest product in last 5 years?
would definitely be the TiBook...I mean who wouldn't think it sexy?!

sexiest product ever?
I still go with the TiBook...never before was there anything with it's looks...dimensions...power...

is it getting hot in here or is it just me?! ;)

Ah, my work here is done :D

but for my vote, TiPB. Just to see the look on peoples faces when you wip it out! Oh my! Shiny and ......

well, I can't go any farther with this or I'll get in trouble;)

I really do think the TiPB is the coolest thing yet. The new iMac would come in second.

i would deffinitely vote for the Tibook. No other computer can hold a candle to it in the looks department.


The iBrator thing has been around for a few years now. It's still just as funny as it ever though! :D

While the new iMac get's my vote at the "Coolest" Mac of the last five years - I'd have to give "Sexiest" to the Ti.

my vote goes to the new lcd imac-sexy in a sort of bmw mini or nissan figaro sort of way.

i think ( hope ) the new professional line is going to be the perfect combo of sex, power and functionality. think the audi tt with it's "lemans" style gas cap. almost an anti-design design....

the old imacs were kinda the "new beetle" of their time-and they paid off royally for both companies.

This year: The new iMac

Last 5 years: The original iMac

All time: the original Macintosh

Well dangit, jef! Here I thought this thread was on Macs and Sex! I was thinking "Well, and I thought I'd read everything..." but here I find out it's about sex APPEAL... man! ;)

So far I don't think Apple's hit the sexy mark quite yet. They had the curves of the original iMac, iBook, and G4, and they have the elegance of the new iMac, iBook, iPod, and PowerBook. So they need to combine those factors. (Sorta like the G4 Quicksilver casing!)

That's MY opinion. :D

That iBrator thing really cracked me up. Did you guys see the posters? And the actual t-shirts & mousepads.

I wouldn't be caught dead walking around with one of those :p

As a guy, you have less options on what you can do with it. Not for me, thanks.

It'd be great to get a female perspective....

There have been a lot of interesting topics on MacRumors in the last few days. These threads are making my otherwise boring day a lot more fun. :)

That iBrator link and the pin-up with the TiBook are priceless. Sweet.

I used to have th iMac girl as my desktop....ANYWAY.

THIS YEARS SEXIEST PRODUCT IS: The 23" HD display. Oh my god just thinking about it makes me want to drool. So big, so crystal clear, and those curves around the edge...

IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS AND ALL TIME GETS THE SAME VOTE FROM ME: The CUBE. Listen....you can say all you want about the TiBook but nothing compares to the cube up close and personal. Its the computer equiv of how I like my ladies...Kinda short, but not too short, very curvy and vuluptuous (sp?), and wears almost see through-but not quite clothing.

Oh man is it sexy, that baby knocks the wind outta me with a glance just like a beutiful girl passing on the street.

Oh, common Cleo. A woman in high heels is way sexy!

Just saying iBrator makes me laugh. I wonder if it would play the startup sound when you turned it on?;) :D

This thread is getting a little off topic, and while the TiBook is certainly sexy, I would have to say Mac TV for all time. Come on, how cool was that? Way ahead of its day.

MadTV is a bad ripoff of SNL if I say so myself.

(I know, I know... but what is Mac TV?)

Yeah, it is, but MadTV can have its moments every once in a while. Mac TV was a Mac that came out in 1993. It was basically a LC 550 (one of those early all in one units) but it was all black (even keyboard and mouse), and it had a built in TV tuner, and a remote control. in 1993!!! Thats crazy!

Ha, good one mymemory, but if you look closely, if she did, she'd end up carrying it all around in her dress, so I don't think it comes across quite as bad as you think.

Favorite Shipping Apple Product: The iPod. I never wanted an Apple product so badly. Every time I take it out of the case to clean it, it's just so pretty. Simple. Elegant. Functional. Thant's Apple.

Favorite Overall in Apple's "Golden Age" of Industrial Design— Cube

Favorite of all time: Lisa— every journey begins with a single first step…

Well in a time where machines really were ALL beige boxes, the Mac TV really stood out, and being all black makes it pretty sexy. Kinda like a normal Caprice wasn't sexy, but an all black Impala is pretty slick. I guess the Mac TV was cooler for the time more than sexy though. Plus, being a guy...anything with a TV built into it is pretty sexy.

no sexy is not the word i'd use
i kind of used that because that was the word used in the original post
i usually don't use that word in reference to anything
