    Hi all. I didn't know where to post this. This is kind of hard to explain. I am looking for a desktop picture i can use that is basically the guts of the 20" iMac G5 iSight. That way when i use the background the guts in the picture are in the same spot as they are physically (cdrom drive, hard drive, etc.) It is sort of similar to the picture of the iMac in the april 2006 issue of macworld.

    I get it.. so it looks like you're looking through into the computer. That's a really nice idea.. good luck finding that. I wish I had it.. but that's such a great idea.

    Hmmm.. that will be an extremely hard picture to get! Those iMac G5s with iSights are a toughy to open. I don't think many have opened them other than adding RAM.

    Neat idea. If you do find one, could you share it?

    Good luck.

    Not quite what you're looking for, but Disctop shows a similar thought process - it is a little app that shows what could happen when you insert a CD or DVD into an iMac.

    I dunno about the "20" iSight" model, but I've seen numerous iMac Guts desktops floating around...I'll let you know if I see one of them again.

    There's a link on the Disktop site that Kernow mentioned to some wallpaper that shows the insides of an iMac through the standard Mac wallpaper

    It's here! They also say on that page, that if you contact them, they'll mail you the layered file that they used so that you can alter it to show one of your regular wallpapers (or presumably just use the insides)

    Or if you scroll down. The guts mixed with an aqua desktop.

    i got one from the previously mentioned website. Thanks guys! Only thing is the color and the quality is a little fuzzy. so this is perfect if we can find a higher quality version somewhere.

    Great idea - reminds me a little of those 'transparent' desktops (where the desktop picture was a picture of what's behind the screen).

    i just realized this but they say that's an iMac 20" isight.. but it's clearly not. the ports are vertical and the cd rom drive looksl ike it was moved.
