What the heck is THIS?

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I was going through some articles at slashdot when I decided to look at one discussing a japanese website that took apart an eMac. When I went to their site to see the pictures I found one that really took me by surprise. Since when did Apple start making BLACK flat panel iMacs?? Looks like it has a 17" flat panel screen too. Is this a hack someone did to theirs or is this legitimate?

    Known hack. Spraypaint yourself one, if you like.

    Not FH. Moving.

    Yep. Of course spray painted.. Now too bad the "case" or whatever you wanna call it cannot be modded like the iBook.. Maybe around the screen though? (The border...) Hmm.

    Of course, the border being black, it makes the screen area look bigger because the screen is also black.

    This reminds me of something I saw in a National Geographic (issue 188) in a doctors' surgery today. It was an Apple prototype, from 95. It looked like a cross between the Black Mac (5500) and the Twentieth Anniversary Mac:
    • 17" LCD monitor

    • vertically mounted CD drive below monitor

    • all in one (like the TAM)

    • black keyboard, with a convex curve nearest the user

    For some reason a chimpanzee was posing with it. This wasn't an advert but an example of compsiting (About a hundred Mac+chimp images were Photoshopped into an empty library).
