    I was surfing around Apple's web site, trying to find a leaked image of the rumored 2.6Ghz G5s (or any clue of them), when I came across this:

    Interesting...

    Thats a old home done paint job from a year or more ago, i remember the dude was hanging around spymac and showing that if memory serves. Dont get excited over a can of paint and some hard work. Its not the new Imac.

    I can't quite tell--does it look to you like it was made that way, or modded? :confused: I thought it was interesting that it was hosted on Apple's site.

    That black paint must add like 200MHz to the clock speed, some chrome tips, a couple stickers and the transformation will be complete. :rolleyes:

    Why?

    That thing looks UGLY. Why would you do that to a great iMac?

    homey

    The photo does look a bit too 'homemade' to be an official Apple release photo...wouldn't you say?

    That could be why it IS on Apple's own servers...

    But the new G3 Tower is on the same page

    Imagine the size of the explosion the G5 would make in that gas can. [​IMG]

    Now THAT was funny.


    Black iMac looks like it belongs to some moron who likes watching re-runs of Knight Rider.

    I remember that, that was From MacWorld Tokyo, from about 2 years ago, there were some cool mods there, I liked the Beerserver G3, and the iMac that was made out of sugar:)

    Yah, I've seent his one before - pretty amusing. I like how people thnk that because it's black, it must be the new iMac - yep, no redesign whatsoever, just a paint job - that must double the bus speed right there... ;)

    Personally, I don't know why someone would do that to an iMac, but whatever....

    All it needs now is a Type-R decal and a ridiculous fan vent thing that makes it sound like a can of angry bees when the fan spins up so you can hear it from a mile away. Perhaps the CD-ROM tray can pop out and act like a spoiler, too, because as you know, with those mods that thing will need all the downforce it can get.

    Heh heh - nice one. Don't get me started though on all those idiots out there who actually do all those stupid modifications to their crappy cars. God, I could rant on for hours about their idiocy - tip resonators, spoilers for FRONT WHEEL DRIVE cars, wings, crappy paint jobs, Type-R badges on non-Type-R cars, stupid lettering/decals, ugly tail light replacements - what are those idiots thinking? Man, I just better stop.... ;) :cool:

    Hell, why not just strip the iMac and replace it all with carbon fiber with lots of scoops.
