Think Different About Desktop Computers

I think Apple needs to really Think Different about Pro desktop computers. In fact they should just abandon the desktop and get down on the floor. I have never been a fan of the current tower case, introduced with the Blue & White G3. It was bigger and bulkier than it had to be and offered less room for internal expansion than the Power Macintosh 9600. I think the G5 processor should come in a box that is meant to sit on the floor with no removable drive bays. It would house the power supply, a motherboard with an AGP and four PCI slots, airport and as many as two 3.5 (?) hard drives. All removable drives would sit on a FireWire/USB docking station on the desktop.

One More iMac, Please

When the new LCD iMac appeared on the cover of Time, my reaction was quite similar to the one I had when the original was introduced. I was not thrilled by the chrome and white style of it, but it struck me that separating the screen from the base was a great design approach. I liked the concept, a lot. This thing is so much lighter and smaller than the original iMac. This is the same kind of improvement the iBook went through when it got reduced in size and weight. I am also hooked on the sharpness and contrast of LCD screens. I finally gave away my last CRT monitor this week. But, I don’t feel confident that the LCD iMac will have the same initial success the original did, because the price went up, not down as it did with the all new iBook.
