Here it is...jsut as we have all seen a long time ago.
Notice that if you go to the Australian Apple store you can get a slightly bigger picture, plus you can see multiple views of it. Lots of vents on the back. Fortunately, if you see it on an angle, those drives are a sort of shiny metal, rather than brushed metal crap.
Hey, that was my first post. I didn't even notice. I've been in the background for a while, but I guess I'd never actually added my comments.
wheres the heatsink? if you look at the gallery pics, the one with the open case shows no heatsink on the processors. whats up with that?
i was asking myself the same thing... the heatsink must be giant that it wouldn't look too good on a PR shot.
I wonder if they are in the apple stores. Ill go by today and take a look at them.
the heatsink does exist they just took it of to show off the duals
sounds good to me. thanks for the explanation.
Go to the Quicktime Gallery and download the quicktime VR of the inside of the machine.
As the machine rotates and opens up, wham, there is a HUGE heatsink, and you can see the reason for all the holes in the back. A fan is pointed onto the heatsink with the air escaping in the back.
Bigger heatsink it a lot better than switching to alternative cooling methods or using more/faster fans.
But we shall see if the new machine is quieter than the Quicksilvers.
Also having the fan suck the heat out of the optical drives is nice, since those things can generate a lot of heat when writing to media.
I dunno. A proper watercooling system is really quiet and it's gobs better than plain air cooling.
did anyone else notice how big the power supply was along with the heatsink....that's why they had to move the drives to the middle of the tower....
...it's still not "growing on me"...i still think it's butt ugly
I'm with you Mnkeybsness. I'm really trying to like it but its just not happening!
Welcome aboard, sailor
It has already "grown on me" Mostly because of those specs...but then again anything is better than a 9500 with a G4 and a 50mhz bus...
lol reminds me of something lalalaaaaaaa...
Don't judge the appearance until you've not only seen it in person but had serious time using it and seeing it in person. The pictures on Apples site are terrible and do not do it justice.
I've seen it...
... in "person" yesterday" at an Apple dealer here in Berlin (the new DP1000).
Looks not too bad in real, but the most significant change: IT IS A LOT LESS NOISY THAN THE QUICKSILVERS!!!
But the performance is not noticeably better than the old DP machines. But that was what I was hoping for! The first benchmarks say the same so far.
To shell out a few thousand bucks just to have a quiter machine is not reasonable for me. And that the DP1250 is still 6-8 weeks away doesn't help as well.
What I gonna do now? I guess I'll stay with my DP800 still for a while and in the meantime I'll buy a DP Windows machine to do the heavy workload stuff... I really hoped I wouldn't have to, but now I really have start to work parallel on both platforms again. I really hope I can have some decent Apple workstation next year to switch back with all my tasks again.
