    It looks too 1998. The Bondi-like plastic is too "old style" for Apple to use now.

    Aside from that it looks pretty good. I like the easy motherboard access.

    too 1999

    I just realised someone else thought this was dated, a year more than me it seems.

    Well it had the right idea, but no company made a drive that small with no fan and basically no mother board to have a CPU on because it would run NOTHING. :p

    looks decent tho.

    His stuff has been around for a while, but I see that he's done quite a bit more recently. Nice stuff and nicely done.

    yeah i must admit thats nice that it has been achieved, but somehow it just doesnt work for me it looks kind of odd dont you think? not too keen on that dell design of the profile.

    Still stick to my 17" Powerbook

    Okay, I'll elaborate: It looks like a 1950's lamp. My parents had one like it, and it sat on top the acrylic endtable. Both were deemed sickening during the classy 70's.
    Retro sucks.
