    A MacRumors reader ran across a very unusual .Mac web page yesterday and was kind enough to forward it on. The page contained promotional images for Apple products, including a couple that are not yet shipping products.

    Still have the tiger desktop, eh?

    And if that's the macbook, it seems to be getting bigger. At least it won't have the cracking issue...

    Not a big fan of black keys on aluminum. Maybe it will grow on me but right now I prefer the solid color MacBooks.

    It hearkens back to the days of the Titanium Powerbook G4.

    Those were good days...

    Second pic doesn't look like a photo. Can't understand what's with the Tiger backdrops.

    I sure hope there'll be more than just a black beveled edge that sets the MBP apart from the MB.

    And how can you see that with an image that small? It's a black border around the laptop. I'm sure its there. In fact, I can confirm it's there. Apple would not get rid of it.

    Next time finish photoshopping the correct OS. Yeah, these are fake. Id put more money on them being G5s then the up and coming MacBooks and MacBook Pros. I am sure iTunes 8 would be advertised like that as well...

    It's there. Zoom in...

    However, the Tiger desktops do seem to make this report questionable

    Hope those aren't "true" images. That MBP is ugly! The rounded border around the LCD screen reminds me of an old TV.

    Yea, but I meant to criticize the authenticity of the pictures, of course not Apple. :p

    at a glance....
    Apple never advertise the release dates of software (i.e. iTunes 8).
    Macbook Pro keyboard looks ugly.
    Macbook Pro is photoshopped.
    Its running Tiger, not Leopard...
    "Pure Beauty, Pure Power" is photoshopped over another caption.
    'Aluminium' is spelled correctly.

    Long story short... its faker than Britney Spears' chest.

    I think the PowerBook G3s had black plastic keys as well. They were after all BLACK.

    Yeah, why don't they have the Leopard desktop? But this makes sense in terms of a design change from Apple.
