25th Anniversary LTD Mac, mock ups

Let's have some fun, stretch your imagination and PhotoShop skills.

If Apple were to release a Limited Edition 25th anniversary Mac (either laptop or desktop), what will it look like? Gold plated? Special never issued before color? Big screen? Tiny screen or pocket size?

This is what the 20th Anniverssary looks like.

You have to put it in perspective and compare it to the computers of its time. When you do that, this thing is freakin' awesome. I remember when this came out and it was sweet. Ridiculously expensive, but sweet.

Why would Apple make a 25th anniversary Mac now? It has been more than 25 years.

I think the man makes a good point, like last year was 30th anniversary... Nothing special. Maybe in 19 more years...

2009 - 1984 = 25.

This means 25 years of Mac, not of Apple (which is what the 20th computer was about).

Why not celebrate 25 yrs of Mac?

Writing this makes me realize I've been using the Mac for 25 yrs (first got my hands on a Mac in March 1984). Seems like a while.

The G4 iMac was the lamp one. There was a 20" G4 version, but not with 2009 hardware

I would buy it to replace my 700mhz G4 iMac in a second. Then I would still keep the old one cus it is so pretty....

Then I wouldn't have to sit around trying to figure out how to clear out the bowl and get a mini in there...

Like a lot of designs, the anglepoise-lamp G4 iMac was a fantastic design that will never go out. The flat-slab, current look we have is so-so, but is a bit too clean, a bit too basic. The G4's arm had a bit of pizzazz about it, a real piece of desktop showmanship.

The Cube was the same for its day too, innovative, different.

Am sure some Macmodders could regenerate a modern Intel mobo from the mini into a 20" G4 iMac shell though.....
