that's an old mock up - that was floating around before the official release.
Yeah, I never saw that one, but it actually looks pretty attractive.
btw, probably no need to mention this, but the auction is a SCAM.
the account is a jacked one.
I hope someone has reported this to eBay.
I tried to but had problems with my browser
I agree, it's quite nice. It's in the "old style" of Apple design, though, like the Cube and Quicksilver designs.
Still, it's very attractive. Wouldn't mind an iMac G5 with a similar design.
true, but the iMac would need a display attached.
haha he has 2 pictures - one of this fake, and one of the real G5. He must think people are reeeeally dumb.
thats a old picture, with all of you artist types here im surprised we dont have a thread about what the next Imac will look like. we know its coming, will it be a all new G5 unit or will it be just a slightly modified current Imac? Plastic or aluminum, speakers built in or like the pro's?
I don't know why you are so quick to assume its a scam. If someone doesn't have a digital camera and is searching around on the web, they might come up with that. Stupid, yes. We'll wait and ask the winner.
because we have seen it before. in fact seen it before the current G5 came out.
If you want to pay $301 more to a questionable eBay source (who can't even get a correct picture) for a machine you can buy for LESS direct from Apple, be my guest.
Myself I'd avoid it like the plague it is, and would willingly brand the word SUCKER into any buyers forehead.
Because I think any buyer deserves something for their $2700
check his ratings. he's sold/bought a bunch of small household items, all under $100.
now, all of a sudden, he's got a $3000 computer selling for 10% less, with a wrong picture (if he's actually got the box, then he should know what a G5 looks like) and giving discount for check/cash payment. geez.
I imagine that 99% of the sites one searches for will offer up the correct picture. http://www.apple.com/g5 comes to mind as a site that WOULD have given him the right picture and OUGHT to have been obvious...if he actually made a mistake.
I don't want to ask the "winner" anything, because that individual will be so upset that he/she will be a danger to himself/herself as well as others.
I think this is a much cooler G5 anyone want to buy it? I do.
What's that thing sticking out the front?
those are hard drives so i guess who ever dreamed this up had the idea of it holding multiple hardrives in a compartment that opens for the drives and then closes. it had a neat movie showing it. I still wonder if Apples next Imac might have a place to hold the ipod or miniipod.
that display looks hella cool!
so does the computer. if it's a scam, (probably is) then don't bid on it!
this wasnt a scam just someones imagination of what the G5 was going to look like. the display is cool.
In fact if you want to look at some cool G5s designs and prototypes along with more check this outhttp://www.theapplecollection.com/design/macdesign some cool and some not so cool.
As I'm ongoingly developing cool ideas for the ipod in my head, how's this:
A drive compartment for the iMac or PowerMac or even for a car stereo, that looks a bit like a casette tape holder, but has a similar mechanism to a slot loading cd drive.
You push your ipod in, dock connector first, and it swallows it up like the slot loading drive. It connects and allows you to use it, then you eject it similarly, push the button and it splits it out slowly, elegantly. This would be SO cool in a car!!
great link! thanks!
I realized that right after I asked...
think ebay have ended it now, both pictures look the same to me now bugger!
anyone kept the picture??
