It's either the way the photo was taken or it was an early prototype (there are no door covers), there is no "conspiracy." Move along, nothing to see here.

The QuickSilver does look unnaturally blue though...

yeah, but it could easily just be a weird lighting/contrast situation.

Possibly, but I the actual QuickSilver tower still looks gray under any light I've seen it (first hand experience, owning one :D). As with the number of licks it takes to get to Tootsie Roll center of A Tootsie Roll Pop. The world may never know.

oh well. regardless, this is probably nothing important. even if it were different than the quicksilvers that were released, we have moved far beyond that by now.

i was hoping these things would be really blue, though. not just slightly tinted. :D

I think you all need your eyes checked if you call that blue... sure it has a slight blue tint to it, but to call it a plain blue quicksilver is crazy!

In the meantime, while the NDA thing is getting settled, look for a Flower Power Xserve and mirror the image here for everyone to see.

Yes, the form factor on the right was that of the Rev. A G4 Towers, the left was the revised G4 Tower in between the first, and the final Mirrored Drive Door enclosure.
