Before they actually come out, I want to get on record here...
1. I think new Apple displays WILL a) be covered in aluminum and have less curvy edges, better matching the PowerBooks and G5.
And I've posted this before (but lost it, so doodled a quick new one here at work
), but I can't get a away from some sort of bisected "cradle" design. The below display could swivel side-to-side and it could tilt back and forth (like a laptop screen).
The display's sides are halved and it sits on a wide "U" base, tilting at the vertical half point (see side drawing). The base could (and should) be some sort of dense, heavy material (covered in nice G5 aluminum, of course) that is itself split: the base stays put while the top portion of itswivels on a secure, heavy-duty pinot rod.
I'm no engineer, so go with it.
The styling isn't there in my drawing (just showing the mechanics) and also keep in mind: Apple would do a clean, visually seamless take on the below, so don't let the lines fool you into thinking it's too "busy" or cluttered. In the below state (a line drawing, showing every part), it certainly is. But I would imagine Apple rolling and smoothing the parts to butt to each other nicely, resulting in a clean, tight look.
Again, just an idea that allows for simple tilt and swivel, which is what most people probably want.
In case something like this DOES come to be, I jus twant to be in the clear...
