    Hey everybody,

    this is my last Mock Up, a proposal for a PowerBook G5 case, i dont know if we eventualy see a G5 in a PowerBook, this is only a Design based in Apple Style tendencies, i hope you like it.

    u can see other mockups at my page Agell Web Site

    cheers,

    Vitruvius

    Nice. :)

    Two very little niggles:

    1. The little gap between the screen hinge and the rest of the case at the bottom should be filled in or something. Make it a little more flush.

    2. Name you're threads with something a little more accurate/less misleading. ;)

    Otherwise, I reckon it looks great.

    I think it's a vent... because a vent's all a G5 PowerBook would need to keep cool and operational.

    :D

    It is a nice looking mock-up though. Good job!

    "This is what you were waiting for."

    It's not very noticeable though. :)

    Nice but neither simple nor elegant enough to warrant a bitten Apple.

    Oh sorry. I wasn't trying to be smart. It was just a clear typo. Great designs though. I liked the pics on the website. :)

    I don't know if you saw the announcement that Apple will be using Intel in a year, but I take that as a sure sign that we'll never see a Powerbook G5. But who says this can't be the design for a Powerbook Pentium M? ;)

    Nice work. I can tell you put some major time into this, but i think it looks just a little too much like a giant personal DVD player from Kmart.

    That looks like a transformer I used to play with... I think his name was SoundWave.

    hahaha :)

    The reality is that there won't be a PPC PowerBook G5. You could always enter your design for the Intel PowerBook.

    Not the right shade. Go check out the other thread to see what we're trying to do.

    I like the look of it.


    I think a burlwood (real- not plastic) powerbook would be cool. Obviously not the whole laptop but it would be cool- very luxery car like.
