    What do you get when you take the case of the apple track pad, blow it up by 10,000% and throw in two E5 - Mac Pro trashcans with a 30in apple display?

    This! :D:apple::D:apple::D:apple::D:p

    Needs magic internal gyroscopes so it can just sit at any angle. Steve would not approve of the tilt button

    Not bad at all :) Close to something I could enjoy as a iMac Pro (which is what I wish apple would do the most) not sure it would satisfy the mac pro customers though since they want to unplug cards.)

    The photos have a 2014 date on them so they were designed before apple created rose gold lol, but that would have been an interesting look.

    From a design standpoint it feels a bit ungainly and unbalanced with the screen hovering right up front and the tube projecting from the back. Certainly an interesting concept for an AIO, though.

    Besides the fact that Apple never really goes backwards design-wise, I've always wondered what an iMac of today's internals would look like using an iMac G4 template. I guess a 27" screen simply couldn't be counterbalanced properly, even with today's screen tech.

    I think the tube looks kinda odd since it looks like a blown up trackpad, but the concept is good. You have two mac pro desktops installed which means its not a cheap compute; however, it also means that you can slide them out for easy repairs or easy upgrades. You could also replace the whole computer. That concept is what apple would never do, a user upgradeable imac... the world would have to be ending for apple to do that.

    Apple does sometimes go backwards. Removing the ergonomics of the iMac G4 for example.

    I'm sure a 27" screen could be counterbalanced, especially with the lighter LED backlit screens we now have.

    True, but even this version of a Mac Pro would have been better than nothing. I guess Apple plans to sell the trash can for another few years with outdated tech and no price decreases.

    That small hinge at the front looks like a tiny penis.

    Speaker grills look like old school trinitron TVs...

    Beautiful work! More than Apple has done, and they probably have a few more BILLIONS than you do :)

    It reminds me of those inflatable punching clown toy I use to have as a child. You know the type that you punch, it falls back then straighten up by itself...

    If you think macs are expensive now, that 30 inch OLED ain't gonna help! Would be lovely, though.

    I'd settle for a 32-40 inch OLED TV but LG only makes them in giant to enormous sizes.

    Don't tease me! I couldn't find it on the dell site. I did see articles this year about a 4K oled monitor from dell that said the price was $5000. Yikes!

    Why do I get these weird feelings when I see that hand touching the tilt button.

    I have had lots of LG displays they have all failed. That alone will prevent me from buying one of these.

    Why do you need 2 Mac pros and not just dual core CPU Dual GPU? It would require a power brick though. Using unRAID is amazing for virtual machines.


    Also, I'm not a fan of not being able to pick your monitor, and likely now being overcharged for not only the CPU, GPU, RAM, and hard drive, but now screen as well :X
