The usual crop of fakes have been circulating pre-Apple event. On August 7th, Apple is holding a media event focused on Macs.

Here are two images that have been submitted and are almost certainly fakes:

Yeah

THese are bad pictures, but I can see where the person is coming from, they do seem to have a realistic idea behind them.... Ok just the iMac, the iPod is just a paper taped onto an ipod, but the mac one seems practical.

As thin as that "iMac" is it couldn't even hold a hard drive much less a CPU with heat dispersion.Not to mention it doesn't show any slot loading ( or any other kind ) drive.

I think these images are perfectly valid. See, they images were actually taken in an elevator.

That "iPod" looks like a really bad chinese knockoff. Apple wood never make something that ugly. White border?

That cinema display look nice, too bad putting iMac in Myriad Pro and adding some ports doesn't make it an iMac. Just to point it out... but the front on shot looks almost exactly like this. It even has the same "shine" on the black floor. It even has the same power light. Let face it, both of these pics are fakes. Seriously, this person could do anything but slap some features on a cinema display with some half ass photoshop skills.

And why would an iMac be running Leopard?

Has anybody seen a real leaked picture on this forum or else on the internet ?
The rumors are perhaps correct but the pictures are always fake.

To tell you the truth, I don't think I've ever seen a real pic prior to release. The only time the rumor has been 100% correct was when Apple itself put next gen Power Mac specs on the Apple store a day early by mistake.

<sarcasm>Look, I take back what I said. The iMac could be real. I just got in touch with Apple and they gave me this image. It even says copyright Apple, that must mean it's must be real. They even used Myriad Pro Semibold. Only Apple can use that font, not "mere mortals".</sarcasm>

Here is a quick photoshop job that I did on a Apple Press image of a cinema display. The rumored image has nothing more than an iSight slapped on the front. So, here you go...

I've posted these before, but this seems like an appropriate thread to repost.









From what I've come to understand, these next few are old, but still a cool concept.

And then there's this,

from http://www.dogsolitude9.com/imac/ There's a cool video to go with it.

Enjoy.
