Saw this link on another forum with regards mac mini-tower/cube designs (apologies if it's been mentioned before elsewhere on the forum):

http://www.conf.co.jp/new_folder/making/cube_11.html

It's a foreign page so you can't read the text but I think the pictures speak quite plainly for themselves....

Whilst their intent was for it to be a possible mock-up for the G4 Cube's successor, I think it's such a great looking design that it would be perfect for a new Apple mini-tower. With the addition of an all aluminium chassis, a re-design of the internals to incorporate the new Intel architecture and some other minor tweaks here and there (like the eternal ports for instance) Apple would have a mini-tower which I'd sell my grandmother to get hold of.


Cool... I want one. I'll definitely be in the market for something new come Leopard.

Oh yeah. Slap a Conroe in that beast. Along with two hard drive bays. A decent GPU. FW800 and other things on it.

It would have been nice if Apple released a special edition unit like that, for the anniversary they celebrated.
