Not more than once a year.If there's a need for handles why arn't they recessed on the top or something.this one looks much better, i guess Comments Reply 1 of 12 yzedf Posts: 24member June 24, 2003 11:05AM I 2nd that. Handles look like they are only there for one reason; so it is not a blatant PC case with cheese grater look.IMO, YMMV Reply 2 of 12 ryyo Posts: 19member June 24, 2003 11:07AM Handles esta bien. Reply 3 of 12 farve Posts: 69member June 24, 2003 11:09AM The new G5 is the most beautifull thing in this world. I wouldn't change a thing. Reply 4 of 12 marloe Posts: 26member June 24, 2003 11:18AM the handles is what makes it look different that other desktops! otherwise, just looks like a PC.

Reply 6 of 12 placebo Posts: 5,767member June 24, 2003 11:23AM I think that the biggest thing that looks bad on the new case are the style of the new vents. I would have liked a hexa-honeycomb front (with cut out hexagons), and then mesh underneath, so you see the mesh through the honeycomb. The new G5 front looks like the little holes that are cut out on the 17" Powerbook speakers.

The edges look kind of sharp too.

Reply 10 of 12 kcmac Posts: 1,051member June 24, 2003 11:48AM I think they should have been recessed and then fold out for use. I still like the looks overall and if it is like the rest of Apples hardware, it is always more impressive in person. Pictures never do them justice.

Come on guys....we finally are back on top and everyone gets all bent out of shape. I have seen the case up close and personal and pictures don't even do it justice.Let's just enjoy where we are at now. Sign In or Register to comment.
