    I doubt it. Someone would have been carrying that or something. No way, Steve lets that go unguarded. It's just there in all it's glory for you to take a photo of - not buying it.

    Nice try.

    lol - you obviously haven't been here long - it's a tradition here at macrumors that new products are jokingly placed in elevators ever since the 'ihome' elevator shot.

    Yep I'll admit, I'm a newbie on MacRumors so I don't know all the traditions/jokes. Photo still sucked.

    I think I get that part now that the others mentioned the tradition. :rolleyes: The joke sucked. <---- is that better for you.

    ETA: I apologize to the OP for ruining the joke/tradition. I had no idea - guess I walked right into that elevator LOL.

    Hi to all people, congratulations for this great forum :9

    one thing, or the elevator it's so small or the box so big! For the dimension of the box it must be a 17" laptop at least!

    It's real guys. My uncle who lives in Cupertino works as a janitor and he said he saw someone putting that box into the elevator. And apparently Steve saw my uncle eyeing the box and told him to pinky-swear he won't tell anyone.

    Ah, and even the iHome 'elevator' shot is an myth - it wasn't in an elevator. Or at least, no elevator I've ever seen (i.e. one with carpets, standard office wall panels and a power duct round the side...) :)

    lmao.. reading this post really made me laugh - loads of people pointing out how obvious the box wasn't there when it is the shoddiness of the image that is in fact the joke; poking fun at fake spy photos.

    Just one look at the image should tell you that this is definitely a joke even if you don't realize the elevator connotations!

    If Apple were to invent the iElevator we'd see shots of elevators inside elevators! :eek:

    Maybe it's the new iJoke. Jeez kids, lighten up a little. FWIW, I thought it was a great joke.

    Doesn't matter if it's 17", some people still think that anything 0.25" thick qualifies as a subnotebook. ;)

    Nice elevator shot :D

    Btw, is the name "MacBook Air" confirmed? I mean, I like the name, it just doesn't sound to me like a name that apple would choose for a new laptop. But what do I know?
