    I'm pretty sure it's a fake. I think I saw that exact same thing a few weeks ago. Though it does look cool, as long as that black is metal and not aluminum.

    Let me beat tallest skil and say: SEARCH THE FORUM.

    Just kidding, its been around for a few weeks, most people discounted it. It doesnt match the current molds we have seen. Looks nice though...

    I hope it looks like that.

    I need a lot of black on the laptop to go with the chiclet keys...

    pretty fake though since all the outputs on the left arent there

    Another reason I just realized why it's fake, it's not a brick! ;) Oh, are we not talking about that anymore...

    Keeps me wondering though. We have the frame casing photos but perhaps we will still see colored lids?

    As other posters have said, FAKE.
    Although, with a little renovation I would buy it.

    Every time I see this picture, I feel the need to point out the DVD drive slot: to scale, that would make those like 19" or 20" laptops. Ridiculous.

    Also, the "tag line" is clumsily worded and un-Apple-like.

    What boggles my mind is that there are actually laptops with 19" or 20" screens out there. What's the point? Something that big is too big to be realistically portable, so why not just save some money and get a desktop?

    One thing that needs to be straightened out here is the Mac "ad" IS a mockup that someone did BASED on the photo. So arguing "beastly" not being Mac is ignorant to that fact. A better argument would be that in the photo, the ports don't seem to jive w/ the recent photos. Also the trackpad area seems to be rather small. That said its possible that the photo OR even the recent shell "leaks" could be prototypes and not the final decisions.

    Has no one even noticed the biggest red flag (other than the fact that it's dog-ugly)?

    "A blend of beauty meets beastly power". Check out the ... interesting ... use of the English language.

    Is it a blend of beauty and beastly (lmao) power? Does beauty meet beastly power? Perhaps one of those two, but not both. Whatever the tagline is, it's not going to be awkward, let alone include the word "beastly".

    Hee hee.

    EDIT: Whoops, someone already pointed this out. Way to hastily read on my part.

    How about the red flag that the "beastly" was not done as to fake us out, it was a mockup from the get-go. The question of whether the photo is real or not is another story altogether.
