Cube -- should've been an iMac
Authored by: filburt on Jul 28, '03 07:18:37PM

We all know why the Cube failed... it ain't a cube! Hyuck. 8)

A corny joke aside, the Cube is a beautiful box. Although I do not agree with top-loading slotless optical drive, it represents the design quite ahead of its time.

It is widely agreed that the New iMac is largely based on the Cube. The primary differences being integrated LCD, more practical design, and price. Particularly with the 17" widescreen iMac, there's a little reason to bring the Cube back (although I would much prefer higher resolution 20" or 23" Cinema Displays).

That said, I voted for the new PowerMac G5. Although many still ridicule its cheese grate-like front, it is the most future proof tower design out there (with a possible exception of single optical drive slot). In person, it really is beautiful. While the Cube is more beautiful, it is too limited as a desktop.

Anxiously waiting for Powerbook G5 (hopefully towards the end of next year?).

No, really. This is a healthy obsession.
