    Well, WWDC is coming up here in a couple weeks, and rumors are pointing to a new Power Mac. Now what they call it ( if its even coming out that is ) is also still unknown. Here is my rendition of it. Tell me what you think, and make one of your own!

    Anyone remember this thing.

    'twas very nice. I wouldn't be heartbroken at all if it took some cues from the Xserve.

    ;)

    I like the look of this. I would be happy if something similar was released.

    Off topic, who here really likes Lian Lis cases? I dont think they look stylish or beautiful at all, just like another PC case.

    No, this picture is at least a year old... Instead of this (IMHO) beautiful clean design, we got MDD.

    AI says the front is aluminum but the sides are "graphite", and that there are "thinner handles"; MacWhispers says the case is substantially all plastic.

    How about if the handles, instead of sticking up or out, were sort of "scooped out"? Or maybe they would look like the nonfunctional rear spoilers that nearly all cars seem to have these days :p

    Very industrial looking.

    Apple will have rounded edges. Pull-out handles (like the cube) would be nice. I'm sure it will be minimalistic....

    Nice e-coli, very nice. I know that's an older image, but with all the rumors that it will still have handles (akbeit redesigned ones) where would they go? Damn, I can't wait for WWDC or whenever the hell these suckers are released.

    I remember.

    I created a version of it around the same time and called it the xMac.

    Here it is.

    Paint it flower-power color and add a free coffee cup holder :D

    Anyway, how about some lighting around the CD drives and other important parts, maby a ambient light sensor like in the pbg4.

    My personal daydream: a design that allows the PM to be rackmountable right out of the box. Like an Xserve but 4-6 rack units high. Maybe integrate the rack ears into the new lower profile handles.

    Hey iN8, you ripped me off!! :eek:

    lol. Wish I could take credit for the design. I think the original was done by eyelikeart or ensignparis a loooooong time ago.

    when the G5 *finally* comes, it will be like the second coming of you_know_who. Seems like we've been waiting a Biblically long time.

    But if it looks like the pic, I'll be all smiles. :D

    Dude, your apple is backwards without the "bite"

    hmmm....maybe what you're saying is that the G5 is Apple's "missing piece".

    oooooohhh. Very conceptual. Everyone check out the big brain on Kid Red. :D :p ;)
