Silly question, but seeing as we are in the twilight years of Mac colour schemes (although PC owning friends still think it is a wild new concept-I mean, catch up!- ) I was wondering what were peoples favourite iMac colours and why- also, are there any colours you cant stand? (The flower-power one and the lime green iBook spring to my mind!)

Mine is my (still in current use) Grape 400DV iMac, although I rather liked the short lived Ruby. I like it at it sits there on my desk like a huge boiled sweet and i still get lots of comments about it even three years after buying it!:D

I shall even stick my neck out and say I liked the spotty dalmation one! (Although if i had been buying one at the time I may have chickened out and bought the graphite one)

IceBook is sweet! The best looking iMac was the graphite one....of course there's the new one too but I don't like that frosty white on it...if it was glossy like the IceBook's one, then it would look sweet, too

orange, orange, orange...

I have an orange ibook, an orange handspring visor...

I wish on the new iBooks they'd make the Apple logo on the lid multi-colored though.

Being an Alabama fan, I would have to say Ruby. She was beautiful. It was a very elegant color. I am also fond of (hold off the stones please) Flower Power. My iceBook is also a nice one though.

I'll hold off the stones, but nothing is going to keep those boulders from comin' down! :D

Honestly, I am more of a graphite color scheme person. I don't like anything spectacular or too prominent. It just loses it loses its taste after a while; then you have even less interest in the graphite/plain colors.

I have a graphite iBook and a Cube, with a graphite Apple logo. I wanted an 880i from Epson, but my parents got me an 880 (no translucent graphite).

Now my favorite color is Titanium! :cool:

I like the dark green that was released between the 5 color designs and the snow/flower power macs. The color just seemed really soothing.

oh wow,
i always thought that key lime was the best!
it was so cool and almost florescent
that's one of the many apple computers that i say i will buy years from now just because they had really cool designs ( when i start making the BIG bucks! )

it starts getting old to look at my indigo after a while
