    ROTFLMFAO!! That is just too funny.

    I can't imagine how much spare time you two must have had.

    Well, what do you think of the design, now that you got a reflective face of showiness on it? :D :D :p

    Re: Hhhhmmmm...

    Argh! They're air intake vents! Man, don't you guys read up on this stuff? :p

    So I suppose if they're the speakers, then that thing on the top must be... an EYE! :eek: :eek:

    They draw in the air, the turbine fan's behind those vents, which draws the air over that friggin' huge heat sink sitting behind the fan. And then it goes out the cheese grater back.

    yes, but what was interesting was they had the reflective surface on them, and the air goes around the edges, not straight in. Interesting touch. The back of the machine is all air vent - pretty crazy.

    A-ha, I was wondering what that thing on the top was! Is the new eye in any way related to the i-apps? That would be great... iChat being able to read one's lips.

    in that pic, it looks quite sexy-- the powermac and not the dude!

    Seriously, it looks pretty good. not as nice as QS, but nice nonetheless. I'm off to compusa to check them out for real. Might sneak the minolta in a grab a guerilla shot or three.

    On the way back from the Apple Store I decided that this case is the best/most sexy yet. I love it, and cant wait for Mine to arrive...

    The mirrored optical drives makes it look so much better then if it were just metal. Also, the mirrors behind the Air vents was very interesting...and I for one thought it was very cool.

    I think that liking the new enclosure is going to be a personal thing. I'm not all that excited about it. It seems like a kluge in many ways. The engineering of the vents to help cool the system seems a bit drastic - it was necessary because they have the processors going so fast its generating enough heat to warm a small room in winter.

    I'm sure Apple's not to happy about that either. With a new chip (the Power4 hopefully) thats smaller, draws less power and runs cooler, they're not going to need this enclosure - so, what is on the horizen? Will we see another new design next year?

    I hope so.

    The weird thing is that every Apple authorized store you go into, a guy who looks like that is in there :eek: Clones perhaps? My local Apple reseller is full of folks like that.

    The mirrored panel is so geeks can burn CDs and pop zits at the same time.
    :D

    call me a neat freak but those mirrored optical drive doors sure showed a lot of smudgy fingerprints...but i thought the new case was nice...and it IS loud.

    maybe we should start a thread containing photos of unsuspecting apple store visitors. do a caption contest.

    next time someone sees these things, put your hand above the surface in the back and feel the output of air. report back on the heat dissipation plz.

    I checked it out when I was there. It wasn't all that bad - but it wasn't running anything that would make it heat up. You'll need to take a Quicktime Movie and export it at 2x size, add some filters, etc. and let it run for 15 and see what happens. Not something you'd likely be able to do in the store - especially with all the people coming and going.

    I love the case, but I just can't believe they can't put some usb, and firewire jacks on the front too. To paraphrase SJ three years ago when he introduced the B&W G3: "We call it a door".

    Dual 867 coming in September.

    You gotta wonder if women can put on makeup looking at the panel and use the mouse with their knees as if they're going to work in the car. :D I rarely see them crash so I assume the car isn't controlled by Windows.

    Oh God, trying to put makeup on in the passenger seat is hard, I can't even imagne somebody doing it while driving, not that I would ever try something crazy like that. :p
