I’m sure Steve really appreciates the iMac picture in this review…

Check out the picture PC Magazine used in their review of the all new iMac. Who said PC users don’t have a sense of humor?

Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Art Vandalay for the pic!

    By looking at this picture you realize that is Microsoft itself would have design the iMac, it would have been a fail. Vista makes it looks ugly, thank God for OS X.

    And, yes I’m a Mac head.

    I dunno, I’ve always thought those vista backgrounds were kinda snazzy and suit the “mac” look…


  3. Yeah, I laughed when I saw the review. Kind of had forgotten how ugly icons look cluttering up the Desktop.

    sircrumpet, you are a massive knob

  5. “Snazzy” is the word your dad uses to describe his awful weekend shirts…

  6. I must be old, I like the background as well.

    I think that Vista background looks fine. FWIW – I don’t like Leopard’s space theme – it does nothing for me.

    Having a screenshot of Vista on a computer being reviewed for, among other things, how well it runs Windows seems pretty straightforward. I am not sure anybody is trying to be funny. Installing Windows is a ‘feature’ of 10.5 – it’s not even a hack.

  8. Shivers down my spine…

    I would agree. Humorous indeed.

    How humorous however is THIS “neutered” iMac.

    I found it in an ad that CDW ran in the April 2008 How Magazine Design Annual.

    p.s. image captured via Jing, via photoBooth. I would have used Skitch, but Jing offers picture storage for the moment.
    Sure beat opening scanner, scanning/resizing scan, uploading, etceteras. 😉

    We all know that anyone who loads Vista onto a Mac is asking for the unforgivable wrath of the underpants gnomes.

  11. Van Souza says:

    Why would M$ care, they sold a copy of Vista.

  12. Kensei Dave says:

    Yeah it looks fine to me. It’s saying that’s the power of the iMac it can run Windows as well.

    Thats what sold me on my Macbook Pro.

    Going to go triboot Leopard, Ubuntu and XP soon… Woot!

    McGovern – I am old. And I think it’s ugly. But I thought it was just one of the less attractive OS X designs. But this reminds me the previews of Vista looked like clumsy knock-offs of OS X. Proof is in the pudding.

    To quote great philosopher: Sometimes bad is bad.

    Who thought a Mac could look so unattractive!?
