Is this the new iMac?

This alleged spy shot of the new G5 iMac has been flying around the web for the last 24 hours. Am I missing something? It looks like a clumsy fake to me, a photo of a Cinema Display sitting in the packaging from a PowerBook.


Oh, and packaging that touches the sides of the computer without any polystyrene? It’s a PowerBook box, goddammit!

On a more interesting note, there are nice ideas over at Engadget, where readers have come up with their own suggestions of what the G5 iMac will look like. You can see their ideas here.

The amount of talent on the internet never fails to amaze me.

Peter from Engadget has emailed with news that the pics are definitely a hoax. And he shares my high opinion of his readers’ talents.
