Which is more important to you? I'm pretty pragmatic, so function usually takes priority over form. Heck, my "desk" right now is a flat, wooden door support by two 2-door filing cabinets. Pretty? No, but she's strudy and I got a heck of a lot of works space for very little money, not to mention she's really easy to move. Do you think Apple sacrifices too much function to keep it's "expected" form? I think the most obvious example is the mouse (hockey puck and one button). Some people's whole arguement 'bout keeping the one button mouse was that it's "pretty/cool" or "it's different." And that, IMO, is just dumb. Being cool or different is fantastic if you still have a competitive product. But being cool or different just to be cool or different is dumb. I think Apple's case design is perfect harmony of form and function. It looks very cool, and it does it's job as good as any other case out there. Aside from the fact that I have to use a hotkey or software "button" to open the Super Drive I love everything 'bout my Quicksilver. The iMac is another good example of form and function. What do you think? How well do you think Apple handles form vs. function? Lethal P.S. Please don't let this turn into another "mouse" thread, I was just using that as an example.
