That's its face! It has a face and a body and a neck. It's a character in itself. I call my computer 'Brian'.isaacc7 said:... I've always thought that the G4 imacs were the ugliest computers ever. The screen on a stalk never looked right, it always looked temporary to me.
Yea, that would be awesome. A G5 iLamp :-Djessearl said:Well, a guy can dream can't he?
Hehehehe. I like that. I'd never seen that ad before. For me, they just screamed "Face and body!" so their marketing worked on me.sw1tcher said:
That is what I've always said to the G4-design-philes, although the opinions of which I entirely understand. But on top of the improved build costs, I'd wager that the packaging, warehousing and shipping of the G5s must be saving them a groat or two as well. If I wanted to I could fold myself up in the box that my 17" G4 came in and live inside it, albeit uncomfortably, for a good couple of hours. Whereas I can only get one of my legs in the packaging box of my 20" G5.Abercrombieboy said:I don't think you will ever see the old design back. My guess is Apple is making more profit on the G5 even though they charge less. I bet it is a lot cheaper to build.
