Snow White was awesome. Much better than the weird mid-90s Performa style http://www.forevermac.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/macintosh-lc-520-300x264.jpg
It's kind of hilarious to see them position Glass as technology that "keeps you in the moment" when the primary objection to Glass is that your attention will forever be split between the online and offline worlds.
Apple bought luxvue to solve the display problem. They've got very low power micro LEDs
I'm sure they can come up with something that doesn't ruin the feel. If they're pulling down a security shutter at night, they could also have retractable pylons that looked like shiny mac pros or something
