    The Leno chin is really large looking in black. I think white is rather nice...

    Is it possible to anodize plastic? I don't think so... you have to have an aluminum/metal surface to do that, which explains why the aluminum part of the iMac in the pic is still silver colored.

    I bet that the iBook replacement (MacBook) will come in black too, and with the same finish as the iPod.

    Six easy steps to getting unlimited Black iMac's now:



    1. Select and pay for your iMac, 17" 20", PowerPC or CoreDuo



    2. Walk to local hardware store, buy can of Black spraypaint.



    3. Walk Home, with spraypaint. If you are under 18 and live in australia, hold it conspicuously, and walk past as many police officers as possible.



    4. Apply Spray paint to surface area of iMac, avoiding the screen, speakers and ventilation points wherever possible.



    5. Wait for paint to dry.



    6. Repeat steps 1-5 for each additional iMac.

    Hahaha, good luck if anyone actually tries to spraypaint their plastic WITHOUT actually removing ALL the internal componants!!!!! (if that's possible)

    Spray paint generally is gross. The finish almost never looks good and is too soft and softens with fingerprint oil.

    It looks to me they've cut the prices because it isn't for the latest models, iMac or iMac G5.



    If they didn't have their brand name on the front then I would be interested. Assuming I had an iMac.

    The fact that you took me seriously is somewhat concerning.

    I don't see why. There are always hicks that come up with dumb ideas. See the custom miniitx case sites. There are those people that think that screwing a few parts together constitutes "building" a computer.
