    Is it weird if I kind of like it? White body, smaller bezel. If they made it a little thinner with some modern internals it would be perfect!

    I just realized it has a fan vent around the screen :eek::eek::eek:

    It looks like an older MacBook. Thinner bezel might look like, but I doubt it's better for actual use.

    It's clear they were going a whole different route at that point, like, real computer hardware running some sort of OS X instead of system-on-a-chip stuff we see today. The low-power components we have today were downright pipe dream futuristic in 2002.

    The front of that prototype highly resembles a Samsung Galaxy Tab

    I bet it ran a modified OSX. That's the iPad that does it all right thurr.
