I was at an Apple retailer recently and I saw on the Panther demo they had on all their laptops there was a really cool dark red and gold background that had a type of surfer on it. I've yet to be able to find it. Maybe you guys could help me with this one...:confused:

Thanks.

You can email/send yourself the screensaver...

It is kind of illegal I guess, and you can get caught easliy, but its possible to do...

I'd like a much easier way to do this! I don't feel like getting caught trying to send myself a screensaver. And remember, I'm trying to get the DESKTOP, not the screensaver/demo thing. It was sort of a movie thing that showed Panther features, so I'd like to get the desktop they used. They had several other desktops shown in addition to the one I mentioned about the surfer.

NOT LAZY

No, I'm not being lazy first off. Second, I can't really get to that same Apple retailer as I'm in college and don't have a car, and it's a few hours away. I've seen other people in this forum and other forums ask for desktop images, and they've had no problems. Why is everyone giving me all this crap? :mad:

You won't be able to do this easily, or lazily, however much you wish. If its a movie just take a screen grab and email it or drop it on your ipod or something. Screen grab will be apple+shift+3 and it saves to the desktop with Picture #.
