YOU ARE KIDDING! Right? Those eighties handles have got to go.

:p :p

Seriously though, Very nice work. The renders are very spick and I really like the first one. The second one is just too retro kitsch for me. Try losing the top two bars. You could also modify the bottom speaker thing bit in the second render so the object is symmetrical, might look better; atm it looks a bit skewed..

MAKE 2 speakers using that nice blue thing to go with your second render too!

The renders are indeed awesome, I love the clean look of the first, but i like the second better for its uber-hightech look :applause:

"Green Giant..."

Might want to change the word "spick" to "slick" as what you have written is an offensive racial slur :thumbsdow



peace

hahaa, very funny :)

Now, Steve Jobs has finaly answered the call from the prOn community, He put towelbars on the mac!! :D

naahh, the model originated from this concept where tha mac can be turned 90dgr and the screen fits into the towelbars:

I think the new powermac should look like this and cost just as much...

I'd go with the second one, the first one is just too bland and not much detail on it sorry.

regarding the mac/pc issue, if you're going after a pc, go for a Linux based system.

But if you like having everybit of your personnal life (spent in front of your monitor) being tapped into by the American Reich, thanx to Bill Gates and his mighty Win Xp, then go ahead, buy some Microsoft shit. :surprised

Mac or Linux. Or no computer at all.:D

that's one option. the other is that since we all know "l" is right next to "p" on the keyboard and have a basic understanding of context we use common sense and not worry about it.

other than that pretty 'slick' images you have there.

LOOKS are tight yes, but if the boxx is size efficient, quiet and fast as **** aint that better than some uber cool colors and pretty lights.

I want a computer that I never see or hear. Like my old commodore 128 built into the keyboard. Computers should blend in not stick out like a giant monolith in the room.
