cd slot color variation on new imac

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
has anyone else who
has seen the new imacs
in person noticed
that the cd slot in front
is a shade different
then the rest of the base
it's not noticable in
the pictures but it
really stands out
when seen in the flesh
eh?
just wondering
it it was just me . . .

Probably a different plastic, so it can't color match presicely.

LOL lunardelite. I tried to read your post as was it a poem or a song. It actually made sense in some strange Suzanne Vega kind of way. Anyone know the melody for lunardelites post?

yeah
but if it
is different
shading then the
imac looks tacky
if apple cares
so much for
design and aesthetics
then how can
different shades
past quality/design control
it's like
the cracks in the cube
all over again
apple can't have
it both ways
it's not like
the imacs are
inexpensive

just ranting

From way upon high
Jobs speaks. It is not a bug.
It is a feature.

Color varieted -
Means SuperDrive is found fast
In low light settings.

Shiller agrees. Says:
"It is an awesome advance!"
"Only on iMac!"

Ives is 404 -
"Designer not found." I fear
Freshly bruised Briton.

Dell is already
Making off-color drive doors.
Mike will take credit.

Bill Gates, unhappy.
No one gives a shit about
That stupid Mira.

I saw the new machine at an Apple Store ... the difference in tone is minimal, and only noticeable up-close.
post #9 of 38
the g4 case
also has variation
i think this is
because the case
is matte and
the door for
the cd tray
is shiny

I was able to see it from a distance.

i will go and
see it next week
perhaps and will
tell you if i notice
anything very different
how much different
in tone is it from
the rest of the case?
post #14 of 38
It's not much different, but it's noticeable.
post #15 of 38
Is it perhaps
because you can see
the black of the tray
beneath the front plate?

the quicksilver tray
is also black
underneath but
it is not very noticable
at all
the only difference
is that one is matte
and one is glossy

so i'm glad
that i'm not
the only one
to notice the
different shading
and to answer
a previous reply
no it is not
because of
the black cd tray
although this
will not deter me
from buying one
it just makes me
weary of apple's hype
about caring so much
for aesthetic details
eh?
what can one do
against a monoply

Yeah

Actually... in the strictest sense, it's not really a Haiku.


[quote]Taken from <a href="http://www.toyomasu.com/haiku/" target="_blank">Haiku for People</a>
<strong>The Season Theme.

Each Haiku must contain a kigo, a season word, which indicate in which season the Haiku is set. For example, cherry blossoms indicate spring, snow indicate winter, and mosquitoes indicate summer, but the season word isn't always that obvious.</strong><hr></blockquote>

However, that isn't to detract from the high-quality of the post.

Hai-larious.

Adding the season of winter, the time of these momentous events:

From high icy peaks
Jobs speaks. It is not a bug.
It is a feature.

Snow color varies.
Means SuperDrive is found fast
In low light settings.

Schiller the yeti:
"It is an awesome advance!"
"Only on iMac!"

Ives is 404 -
"Designer not found." I fear
Not found until thaw.

Dell is already
Making off-color drive doors.
Snow falls in Texas?

Gates in wint'ry voice:
"No one gives a shit about

I make proposal:
If you make Apple haikus
Great future ahead

I bring Buinessplan
Buy Applehaiku dot com
All Macheads will flock

AppleturnsĀ“ boring
Write much too long articles
Advantage to us.

To sell banners is
Piece of apple pie for us
They will sell themselves

Reward for light work?
The Spring Santa brings to us
iMacs and TiBooks

'iambic' is hard.
