iMac G4 design vs. the iMac G5/Intel design

The first computer is an Apple iMac G4. The second one is the latest iMac available: it has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. (This looks almost the same as the iMac G5). 

I know the newer version is a much better computer.  I know that the newer version also takes up less space  and is more practical. But judging each computer strictly for its looks only, I like the G4 better. I think it’s a prettier piece of furniture. Does that sound weird? When I first saw the design of the G5, I was thinking “Wow, that’s amazing how they can fit the whole computer in such a small space.  But it doesn’ t look as cool”. 

In the end, that doesn’t matter, though. I’d much rather have the newer one.

  1. I concur
    I liked the G4 design better too, my g/f likes the new design (for practical reasons, for aesthetic reasons, she like the G4 design also). Looking for the new iMac with the Leopard OS design, or will they do a redesign???

    So it’s not only me. Yay!
    I doubt they will change the iMac’s design with leopard. I think the design is normally based on the computer/processor itself changing. But there are always exceptions. That might be cool if they did change it. I don’t know how much more they could change it since it’s so small already. But then again, I said that when I saw the G5. Apple always surprises me in a good way.

    I meant to say G4.

  4. Next Tuesday’s Press Conference
    There’s suppossed to be a new Mac related press conference next Tues, speculation is that the new Mac OS X will have some touch screen capabilities circa iPhone (there was a huge touch screen material order from Apple, the speculation was a 2nd gen iPhone or a nano iPhone, but I think this makes more sense, just by the sheer volume of the order).

    That’s awesome! I heard that the new iMacs are going to look like big ipod nanos. They will have aluminum shells. I don’t know if that’s true, but it sounds cool. I wonder if they’ll be offering them in colors again.

  6. It Started
    The bogus image rumour mill started

    I don’t know how to HTML the image, but this is a supposed pic of the new iMac design to be announced Tuesday, what do you think?

  7. Re: It Started
    I guess we will find out in a few more hours. I’m excited! haha.
    I have been going back and forth with speculating what’s real and what’s not. But it’s just frustrating me! We will know soon. 🙂

  8. New version of iTunes
    New version of iTunes out, hmmmmm…?

  9. Safari For Windows 3.0.3
    Finally on this version I can finally read Korean, but I can’t type Korean on it yet. Once it goes there IE7 is out the door.

  10. Re: Safari For Windows 3.0.3
    does it work on firefox or flock? i personally use those. i mean, safari is def better than ie. but it’s still got a few kinks to be worked out. i’m sure in a few years, it’ll be the best browser around.

  11. I’m A Firefox Fanboy
    99.9% of my browsing is on Firefox, except when I HAVE TO (note: HAVE TO) go to many non-supporting Korean websites. I just want to give Safari a shot. Heck I used Firefox back when it was Pheonix, remember that?? As for flock, heard of it but kinda afraid to use it. I saw the Mac announcement, I’m really geeked. Did you see the Bill Gates, Steve Jobs Interview at the DS Conference? I’m downloading it now on my iTunes.

    flock’s pretty much the same as firefox. even plug-ins made for firefox will work with no problems on flock.
    i use flock because it incorporates flickr, blogger, and livejournal (as well as photobucket, you tube, and more) in its browser.
    it’s soooo much easier to upload/tag photos if you’re uploading a bunch at a time.

    hmmm…, I’ll check it out.
