    Besides the G5 blah, I don't think anyone's going to make a laptop with all the silvery/chrome stuff, just imagine the fingerprints, ugh.

    This belongs over at Spymac. No offense to Spymac, I'm a member over there too, but this site and that site have VERY different personalities.

    i highly doubt apple would release a computer in a precious metal, especially considering the tarnish :eek: but it's a nice concept.

    it would weigh a lot more.

    plus, this was clearly done before the 17" was released -- they would probably have a G4 that sized, and use it for promotion.

    like i said, nice idea. the silver running across gaps in the keys is quite a touch, but apple wouldn't release a laptop with a keyboard trapped by the case...

    agreed, spymac.


    here that will be picked apart instead of being thought of as creative. but frankly, it is quite obviously a 3-d model and not a picture, giving it no ground to stand on. nice try, didn't work.

    I hate to say it: what a dumb looking picture...

    I must be in a really bad mood right now. What a bunch of POOP. Serious doggie-doo-doo. Who'd want a laptop as weird-looking as that? It looks like a silver slab of ice cream with a bunch of broken-off pieces of a Hersey's candy bar placed on top of it. Who'd take a thing like that seriously?

    (Then again, maybe I'm not in a foul mood. Maybe I'm just hungry! :D)

    silver finish pb

    I poo-pooed this model over on Spymac, but here's an interesting pic from powerpage that shows - apparently - a real pick of a mirrored tibook. Hmmmmm.

    reported it to apple, they should be interested in the huge trademark infringements. this breaks a number of rules. tsk.

    a few lawyers calling and he'll stop.

    :rolleyes:

    Hmm, something seems fishy with that "right-click protected" order form page. Oh, wait. Let's have a look...

    Is it just me, or does the contact information you input in the "order form" get posted to:

    http://www.freeadvertising.com/script/mailform ?

    Huh...

    BTW, the "MMM" who designed the site sure is a Flash MAVEN, eh?

    Geez, sorry...

    Wow, I'm so sorry for such an awful post. This was my first time posting to the macrumors site; I didn't know that everyone was so touchy wih what gets posted. Just thought you guys could have some fun with this. Didn't mean to waste your bandwidth.

    I don't think anyone was getting touchy... just hardcore humor. Its a fake, a bad fake and a lot of users feel the need to flame the guy for it. Calling his house, harassing him... even notifying apple legal. That is funny. No one was aiming it at you. Better luck next time. :)

    Note at the bottom of the page:
    " (Picture from: Epix3d(www.epix3d.8m.com), it's a design not a real G5, as G5 don't exist yet.) "

    Sounds like theyre promissing that when any "G5" actually comes out, they will send you one.... after they have been holding your money for a long time.
    What the question should be is what do they consider a G5? The next G4's? The 970? No one knows...
