    Nope; horrible photoshop job...
    That is the face of the scanned "PowerMac G5" that was going around plastered right on the front of a quicksilver... If the scanned powermac picture is fake or not; this is fake.

    I think it's supposed to be a joke, and I got a laugh out of it.

    I say, bad photoshop joby, looks like a cut and paste then photographed.

    why would the bays, assuming that the top row of vents is a secondary bay, not be proportional to the other bay below it? could it be that it would "set in" that much?

    when magnified the power button does not look usable... I guess that I just don't want to believe it because it does not fit into the design strategy that has come before hand, it does not follow the same minimalism that each revision to the g4 received.

    are there any developers here that could verify that sticker as being a developers identification sticker and not a school id sticker? it looks a lot like a school or work id sticker.

    The bottom end of the grill should have been curved to match the contour of the G4 enclosure.

    The focus and the anti-aliasing of the grill doesn't match the photo's depth of field and higher quality anti-aliasing. The anti-aliasing of an original photo or freshly rasterised eps is always superior to re-scaling and distortion effects created in photoshop or other editors.

    The lighting is inconsistent too, though that's harder to tell if the materials reflect light differently.

    Of course a 3 quarter shot showing what's on the side would have been more challenging, and a shot of the back.

    Oooh, first the picture of the G5 that looked like a garbage bin, and now this large humidifier. :p Maybe the humidifier is run by a 970. Yeah, that's it!!! ;)

    If you have an imac g4, tilt your screen to the maximum up position... then look the pic from an extreme angle (from the bottom) You can see the tape!
