    At least when I talk to Mac fans, they seem to wonder if Apple will do what they did with the iPod and turn the iMac black (I firmly think they will not). But I was looking for photos and stumbled on this website.

    Now I cannot read Japanese, so I have no idea what this is about, or if this computer was custom built or redesigned. Either way it looks...cool, but odd to see the G4 in black.

    Here's some photos to catch your intrest in checking out the site. :)

    It looks like it was painted that way to me, and not very well. Maybe that's just me though.

    Yeah the more I stare at it the more I am seeing some small smudges and such leading this.

    Wow...that's a terrible job. Matte finish, smudges, etc.

    ColorWare would have done a much better job...

    Only the keyboard is meant to be black. Those are the keyboards that came with the first iMacs.
