what's up with Apple's website? it looks like they increased the opacity and distance of all the dropshadows on the site. the buttons almost gave me an epileptic seizure. they need to fix it pronto.

its seems that that style is just for the new PowerMac

each piece of hardware has its own style - pretty odd looking at them all at the same time.

I think that who ever did this one wasn't executing the design correctly - it does have some problems.

not much continuity there, that's not great design. May its just an aftereffect of the site updates, hopefully tey'll get it together soon

Well, my thinking is that each machine is different, so they're doing a different style for each. It is relatively subtle when not all seen together. I'm thinking it was done on purpose from the start. It will be interesting to see what's going to happen with the new graphics initiative - I'd love to see something a little more slick and hi-tech.
