What's this piece of hardware?

I've been looking through some of the pictures that Diana Walker took from Steve Jobs in 2004. I noticed some device that I didn't recognize on his desk. I've marked it on this photo:

Does anyone know what it is? It looks like a tiny Mac Pro.

Why do you have to be an asshat with lmgtfy? If you know the answer just say so. Pretty simple.

Seeing how it's Jobs, I'd guess it's a scale model of what the new Mac Pro would look like.

It looks like a Macally G-S350SUAB hard drive, but is a PowerMac G5 model. Likely a design model. LaCache is an iPhone auto corrected Lacie. Lacie being a popular external hard drive maker.
