Would you buy this if it existed?

in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
How about an aluminum Cube? Following almost the same design lines as the G5 tower including mini handles.

Single 1.8MHz G5.

2 firewire ports, 2 usb, etc.

Bottom and top Al mesh as opposed to the towers front and back.

One computer controlled fan.(trying to keep it somewhat realistic)


Could it be done? I wish I could render one, but my zero rendering abilities get in the way.

I'd go for one. At least in my mind it would look awesome.

Edit: how ironic, misspelled realistic.

    Sure, I'd buy it if Apple made it.

    The better question is would Apple be willing to sell it? You're proposing that Apple spend the additional R&D and engineering expense of creating a new enclosure, for a machine that would be faster than the current 1.6 G5 tower, and then price it $200-600 less.

    Who would buy a 1.6 G5 tower with a 1.8 G5 cube available?

    If Apple is inclined to put G5 technology in that price range, they'll drop the price on the low-end tower. Or put the G5 into the FP iMac.
