Depending on the rent costs, I would buy as few current PMs as possible, wait 5 days and make the decision.

sorry, all this excitement for some picture of a box?

I have sent the pic to brad and it will be up to him to post it or not.

Boxes like them can be taken from any where and still can claim "I took this picture from the back of the Apple Store"

even if they are from the back of an apple store, is still says nothing

But the tape is crooked on the boxes, so it means the boxes were thrown together rapidly to get them to the stores on time...

Attention Internet Users!

"it's" contraction of "it is"
"its" possessive form of the pronoun "it".

It's shameful how grammar on the Internet is losing its accuracy.

One small thing that is bothering me about the box pictures... there is no visable outer damage from shipping, no visable smudges from shipping, and no shipping label on the top (that I can tell) or a packing list for that matter (they may have opted to not put a packing list on the boxes of course). How many of us have sent anything airborne, fedex, USPS, or UPS and gotten it in pristine (clean and dent free) condition? Its a possibility the one out of four would reach the other end looking like a new box but 3+ boxes, I doubt it. Infact today I got a box of glassware for candle making and not one side was unmarred or dented in some fashion. I'd like to believe this picture is of the real apple store stockrooms and new machine's shipping boxes... but sometimes its the information that isn't there in a picture then what IS in the picture.

Just my $.02

Yeah the shading is all wrong on those boxes. Obviously rendered in a 3D program, than overexposed on a scanner after being printed out on a fiery printer. Fake *CONFIRMED*
post #381 of 402
Wow, you people are twisted... I like it!

These were shrink wrapped together and on a pallet, also there is 7 boxes shown (3 in frot and 4 behind those 3, as you can see one more stacked up) and there is 3 more boxes on the other side of the room.

This picture was taken with my camera on my new cell phone (hence the size)


k later.

I have used my superpowers to magnify and decipher these mysterious labels.

They read: "100% Columbian Coffee"

Where's the "DO NOT OPEN BEFORE XMAS" labels? Wouldn't Apple plaster them all over the boxes?

Eh, they don't look very big, either. Not as big as my Powermac G4 box, and of course a Powermac G5 box would have to be one bigger.
post #390 of 402
those are just outer boxes - they come on top of any apple box
post #391 of 402
The label says "If you can read this you are pissing on your shoes"

Word has it Steve personally delivered the boxes to each Apple store and distributor. In a beat up '93 Volvo 240, no less. We know he demands perfection.
