So does the box that my iBook came in, but that doesn't mean I couldn't stick a spray-painted Etch-A-Sketch in it, snap some blurry photos, and call it Apple's latest home computer.

That box looks really, really, really similar to a PowerBook box.

Well I have seen most of the apple products in their boxes (with the exception of the newest version of the powerbook, the xserve and the new displays). I have seen the iBook box. and though it looks similar it is a little bit smaller then the one in this picture( if i am getting the right scaled view). One possibility is that they are the new cinema display boxes, with a "spray-painted etch-a-sctech". But i think there will be a lot of more leaks with in the next 96 hours.

Well I've seen the photo with a hand in it - and the hand looks massive, it could easily be a 12" iBook or PowerBook box.

"The saga continues: Those pics of the new G5 iMac that were supposedly snapped in an elevator at Charles de Gaulle airport outside of Paris? That was a hoax. The guy behind the pics has admitted that it was just a 20-inch LaCie LCD stuffed into a PowerBook box. Nice try, though."

Never mind - only a day and a bit to go!

Well it was a good try, but there can't be anything standing in the way of a mac user, and his bootleg fakes. That guy should be ashamed of himself!

I got really skepticle after not seeing a CD-drive or any ports on the left side. Apple would surely put the ports on the side for easy access. and the would not put it on the same side as the CD-drive. So i was pretty doubtful!

Well, you know...how the new G5 2 ghz or whatever have liquid cooling? Maybe, just maybe, this is a prototype of an imac, and is liquid cooled, because I, too, thought that the G5 had cooling issues. That's why they missed their date of release and had to push it back. Maybe it has some small tubes running throughout it that cool the processor. Just a thought, and I think that the "grey" look is aluminium. It's about time for apple to get rid of the white, that's been around for almost 5 years now...Maybe they're basicly putting a system on the back of a Cinema Display? Looks cool, however, whatever it is...

Thats bull****!
How would you install OS X. And no doubtably other programs schools need(appleworks or Office). CD-Drives are cheap, and there is no reason they would not put one in! That is just foolishness! Macs don't come with floppy drives so there would be nothing to burn data on to. Except a USB flash drive!
