Yup, that's part of the inspiration and a comparison made in some PC mags
I'll come clean: I photoshopped the Asus 7700 ATX case. I'll leave it to you all to find the pre-photoshopped Asus case. (www.asus.com)

In all seriousness -- I think a PowerMac with brushed black metal would be really cool.

Come on guys, let's see something that could actually be produced by Apple

And sunilraman, what is with the Fiddy Scent obsession?!?

Hey, I'm a desperate attention seeker. Fiddy seems to have more impact then my earlier HR-Giger-esque ProMac/ Asus Vento 7700 case hack job.

And it was icfireball that brought on the BlingMac, it just needed a celebrity endorsement

I would bring out Ice Cube but that might be a little old skool now. But still great:

Today I didn't even have to use my A.K.
I got to say it was a good day


Word to your motha..BIATCH!!

As for endorsements from the rap/hip hop community, I would go for the true Old Schooler, Ice-MuthaFuckin' T, yo

Just hope that there will be a smaller version, in terms of the size of a case - the current PM is huge.

I liked that one. Clean with baffled intake, would cut down on noise that leaks out of the front of the now, cheesegratter Power Mac.

Call me crazy, but I think Apple should make this computer look different then the others when it comes time for Intel-ization. Why?
  1. It may be the last Mac to change*, but its audience (professionals) has a lot riding on the processor change. There are still many programs that need to go Universal, and this platform change should be welcomed with a new coat.
  2. So you say, "but then if #1 was true why didn't Apple redesign the enclosure for the MacBook Pro?" Simple. That design worked fine for their replacement Intel chip. Lower power chip, laptop case. But the Power Mac G5 was entirely designed because the IBM G5 is a power hungry, heat spewing beast.

See there is NO point to have 9 fans, their "holey" front for the new Intel chips. So they use Xeons, so they use a server board, see server hardware is freakin' loud. Louder then loud. I don't want freakin loud just because I want power and expandability. On the desk, under the desk, they can redesign the PMG5 case and should.

BTX or something similar would work, two 120mm intakes with dust filters (washable) cooling hard drives near the front of the case and then chips near the back. 3.5" hard drives are big when you want to use more then two of them so I don't think the current G5's zones would work if they add more drives, which they should.

Look at for an example of good acoustic design.

I'd like Apple to finally offer a Tower that isn't a Power Mac, that isn't $2000, that isn't huge, and fan filled. I'd like to see another, smaller box with limited expandability and just a single processor.

Meh, I'm just pissed off. I've brought my 1.8 GHz Dual G4 upgraded Digital Audio back home after being at the office for a few years and well, its loud. Just recently sold a gaming PC I built using that large, silver case I linked to above. Two drives, Dual-core processor, high-end video card, it was whisper quiet. THAT is what I'd like if I plunked down cash for another Power Mac. Its expandable, its quiet, its powerful.

Pfft, I'll probably end up buying a Mac mini and installing a 2.1 GHz Duo or Merom after they are released. My Mac mini G4 has been great acoustically.

* The Xserve may get updated before, it may not. But it really is the black sheep of the Apple line-up anyway. And may not follow logic.

1. weird crashes
2. whining sounds
3. not powerful enough
4. not enough ram
5. no SLI graphics
6. too loud
7. too big
8. too small
9. not expandable
10. too expandable
11. too sexy
12. not sexy enough
13. too expensive
14. too low-priced
15. too much thermal paste
16. not enough thermal paste
17. too heavy
18. too light


Don't forget:

19. Drops internet connection from wake
20. Drops internet connection randomly
21. Internet connection in general sucks
22. Bluetooth connection sucks
23. Fans are noisy

We laugh. But I hope Steve is taking folks at Apple to task over the quality issues.

Apparently, damn. haha. I could replace the 120mm fan and put fanmates on the dualie fans. I could, but meh. Once I get another Mac mini or in a few weeks just use my Mac mini G4 from work I could buy a Dual-DVI KVM and wake the Digital Audio from sleep when I want to play Quake 3/4.

Cool. Here was my version. The complaint feedback was too small and the handle would slice up your hand realll good. Plus "core ex2" was just something I made up. All the intel naming scheme thingys are confusing me now.

Here's mine, with a glossy black case, a Xeon logo I drew up in a minute or two, and two graphics cards with an SLI bridge.

If Apple would do something like that with the MacBook Pro I'll buy one.

it's not really the macbook black... but a more nicer darker aluminum case...


I do remember from the "MacBook Pro Mock-Up thread" that Sunil would have liked a darker aluminum case. So I gave this a try.
post #159 of 243
Placebo. Black is a hard sell to everyone, although I would get the black one for sure, but could do it in a glossy iPod white for the business sector that possibly couldn't have that on top of their desk? You know how conforming the working sector can be.
