    Neither link will work for me...

    [Edit:
    Oh wait, they're working now...

    Hey cool. They are a couple of seriously sweet designs. I think they would still sell well if they were released tomorrow!

    That's not a prediction, byt the way. :)

    Oh yeah, I remember those from an old Danish Mac Magazine.

    There were newtons with colored casings too, and some tablet-like thing (wasn't it sculley who wanted tablets put Jobs who killed it?)

    They were real...

    there are a bunch of pictures from an Apple Design book that's no longer published.

    Apple apparently did a whole lot of research with alternative materials as well... wood, aluminum etc....

    My favorite, never made Apple design:

    I'm with arn...... well not with arn if you catch my drift..... that's a cool looking apple..... :D clean and minimal!!

    The first 2, whilst they're innovative, they are completely over-designed and engineered, especially that second one....... Ewww........ :p

    The Apple Product design book though is amazing, let's hope that a revised edition is released soon, as I'd love to see what Ive's non-production doodles are like...... :D
