    Found it circulating on the Thinksecret messageboard. Apparently it was on Apple's French site as a pop up for a short amount of time.

    Supercomputer on your wall?

    Supercomputer on your lap?

    Supercomputer in your brain?


    Speculate away.

    Oh ... my ... word. What is all the hype about surrounding that one ad? By definition, the PowerMac G5 is a supercomputer, because it performs 1 gigaflop or more. Same goes for every Apple product with a G4 in it. The expected G5 iMac is no different. Have people forgotten that the Big Mac isn't the only way to build a supercomputer?

    Of course, I'll be in class during yet another Apple expo.

    I think you're missing the point. I think the key part in the ad was on "on your desk", as if a wall-mounted imac or some sort of portable machine was going to be announced.

    Searched the site a little more, ran a php script to see what i could find. Amazingly, apple must have slipped. Ladies and Gentlemen, I have the first official picture of the new iMac G5. All praise me.

    he changed the link, and added something to the banner ad which I suspect is photoshopped... I hope apple never makes something that ugly... :eek: ;)

    Ah yes, one of these "before and after" series posters - one version before the announcement, then a second version with the black space filled in for the second version.

    Hmm, so what's after as super computer on your desk? A supercomputer on your wall, in other words a mountable G5 iMac? Although the whole "monitor with the hardware and guts in the back" model for a wall-mounted iMac is intriguing, I just don't see it happening with the current G5 heat issues. If they can do this for the G5 iMac, then they can make G5 PowerBooks - and we all know they can't do that and won't be able to for quite some time yet.

    Guess we'll all find out in a few days!

    I don't think that apple will ever make a wall-mount. Not everyone has enough space on a wall for a 23 inch monitor.
