    Not likely, simply because enclosures in brushed aluminum, we have only seen on Pro series Macs. Other than MacBookPros and MacPros, everything else is in plastic, and its either white or black. Therefore, if u realize that the iMac does not belong in the pro series, then brushed aluminum seems strange for it! Not to say that my taste prefers white for the iMac! Black for my taste is awe full and degrades the great machine that the iMac is!

    Wow, you're right. Especially with the cool aluminum Mac Mini with its top of the range GMA!
    Pro, indeed.

    iMac will be Aluminum while the Mac Mini's and the MacBooks will stay plastic. iMac will move a step ahead and be the "middle man".

    in addition to the mac mini mentioned, the apple tv has the aluminum color. so what if the imacs and the pro mac line have similar enclosure materials. it wouldn't be the first time. the blue and white g3 towers mimicked the look of the original imac. aluminum ftw!

    still apple tv isnt a computer!
    as for the G3 macs, then apple, was at its start of making pro or not user oriented macs, so u cant count what happened then. now all pro macs are alluminium period and i think apple will go along with this unless theres a new redesign of the Pro "species"!
    anyhow i think iMac in aluminium will be ugly, i hope it keeps the white "pure/innocent" style! :D

    Sorry, I disagree, along with the fact that I don't take anyone seriously who uses "u" for "you".

    I can accept the disagree part, as for the what u take for serious part i couldnt care less. This isnt grammar school or whatever, so id advise you to stick with the substantials, they are more important in our little threads in here!

    Grammar School? Didn't know grammar included spelling... huh... :p

    Anyway, my take on the new iMacs is. I will believe it when I see it. There have been way to many rumors about it.

    NEW IMACS WEEK BEFORE WWDC!!!! Then only MacBook Pros...
    NEW IMACS AT WWDC!!!!! No hardware was announced/released at WWDC.
    NEW IMACS AT END OF JUNE! Only iPhone came out.

    An update is indeed imminent but there have been too many rumors around hyping a non-existent update to believe any more. Rumors aren't going to make them come faster. Apple might just be waiting for something. Perhaps even a brand new processor that no one else has? (Like they did with the 8-Core Mac Pro)

    Or it could be Apple making way for the release of a new product.

    If we're going for grammar and spelling perfection, it should be noted that periods go inside quotation marks.

    i.e. "you."

    Only if someone is writing a sentence and someone is speaking it.
    For instance: "Take out the trash." Period in quotations, however, since the person wasn't quoting an entire sentence the period goes outside the quotation marks.

    Santa Rosa? :p Even though it's not THAT much of an upgrade...

    What they REALLY need to do is up the RAM to 2GB for the 20"/24" :)

    Depends on where you are from. American style dictates that periods and other punctuation goes inside the quotation marks at the end of the sentence, regardless of the situation. The only exception is when you're dealing with single letters or numbers such as "A" or "10".

    However, the Queen's english depends on the situation, with punctuation usually inside quotation marks for direct quotes and outside for most other cases.

    Basically, unless its a direct quote or a single letter/number, it's up to the writer to decide where to put the punctuation unless you want to follow the strictly American Style.

    Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread. I guess that's why I'm a writer.:rolleyes:

    I think it makes more sense to do it this way:

    Quote: Apple makes the bestest computers ever.

    Sentence with the quote: Shouldn't it be "Apple makes the best computers ever."?

    I say if you are quoting something with a period put the period inside the quotation marks and if your sentence is finished after that quote put another period there signaling that the sentence is finished. Also if there is no period in what you are quoting then why put a period inside the quote? There is no period to quote!

    It just gives it more structure and less chance of misinterpretation.

    I don't even really know if I just made sense... Too tired... lol

    It the days of the printing press the period and comma were fairly fragile characters that would often break off during the printing process. When using quotations, printers would insert the smaller character inside the quotation marks to protect them. This typesetting practice created the American English standard for including the punctuation inside the quotes. The British base their usage on grammatical rules rather than typesetting pactices.

    Just thought I'd be really picky and point out AppleTV actually is a computer. Albeit a very small and crippled computer.

    The 160GB version is a better spec than my PowerBook when I bought it. :eek:
