You mean the plastic G4 cases who's handles broke off if you were not careful? The So Called Cheese Grater case is an excellent design. Ever take a Lampshade G4 iMac apart? Not very fun.

I like where this is going.

Why not redesign the Mac Pro with a cube design?
Um... but I kind of like the Mac Pro...

It sure would beat the ugly cheese grater design Apple has been using since 2003.
Oh, you have crossed the line now.

Actually, this was the Cube. You can think of it as the overpriced but really cool-looking spiritual ancestor of the Mac Mini. As for the lampshade iMac, I remember tearing the optical drive out of one of them so I could put in a DVD drive with which to install Tiger. It makes me somewhat look down on self-proclaimed tech savvy people that think taking apart the current Mac lineup is "overly difficult."

I happen to have come accross a Top Secret sketch of the new product



I understand it is to be called . . . . .. iGlasses.

BTW, as you can easily tell, I flunked Art in grade school.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

i think there is a missing mid range between the mac mini and the mac pro.

a cube with upgradeable vid card or at least 2 pci-e slots in it would be great for about $1000-$1200

I honestly do think that would sell well to for them and bridge that gap from a full mac pro from the mac mini/imac crowd.

If nothing else it would satisfy the gaming crowd, with a small selection of video cards that apple could support say 5 upgrades a year would not kill an OS for video drivers.

This coming from a tinkerer who does not game how funny is that

How about a New Mac book and New Mac Book Pro that has two screens and one of the screens is a touch screen key board.

Ha, love those iGlasses! Brilliant. Then I wouldn't have to use a magnifying glass with my iphone. 8) Aging Boomer here.

As for the topic, what I'm praying for is Apple will invent a small netbook-sized BACKUP/SYNC/RESTORE/UPDATE device strictly for iphone so we don't have to buy a "whole new computer/laptop" just to do that. (And it would be nice if it also allowed certain WordPress blog admin duties that don't work from iphone, etc.)

I no longer use my 2006 PPC white ibook for over two years since iphone entered my world. Technically I'm due for a new laptop just to keep up with all the new updates, OSs, iOSs, etc. (HD on prior ibook too small, DVD is broken, it's PPC vs Intel, etc.) but I really don't want/need a full-fledged new expensive laptop... just something smaller & cheaper to update/backup this iphone sucker! And sure, there's MBAir but still too big. Make it netbook-size & cheaper & I'll reconsider.

BTW, newbie to the forum!

Yaaah, thanks OSXX (OS.20+? ), but mini, though cute as pie, is still a "desktop" in that it needs a monitor, right? Now if I could plug my iphone directly into it & use the iphone as the monitor, that might suffice.

I was actually thinking plug it in a nice big flat panel TV and kick back in the easy chair with a Bluetooth keyboard/trackpad.

It seems more likely that Apple will finally debut the rumored Apple TV (no, not Apple TV, but an actual television) that will serve both as a hi-def display in a much larger screen size, as well as have full computing capabilities, sort of like a much larger and more elegant iMac.

Build in Netflix, Apple TV, Airport, Thunderbolt, etc. and they could have a serious winner on their hands, as long as they partnered with the right display manufacturer.
