Far East fanboi dresses iPad as Mac (Classic)
A Japanese fanboi has come up with one of the most artful marriages of old and new kit that we've seen in quite some time.
Every überstylish Apple offering spawns an ecosystem of überstylish accessories, and the iPad is no exception. Cases, for example. We admire Apple's convertible model, but the fine leather eyecatchers from Sena have also, well, caught our eye.
But nothing matches the classic lines of the classiest of classics, the Mac Classic, as pressed into service by the fine mind behind site hirac, and brought to our attention by MacDailyNews:
Vicariously experience a frisson of delight as the steely black iPad inexorably penetrates the platinum Classic's muscular torso.
Be subtly amused by the sophisticated wit of contemporary curvature as it boldly and unashamedly flirts with retro angularity.
Be simultaneously transported to a warmly nostalgic past while soaring deliriously forward into the unavoidable Götterdämmerung of the PC era. ®
A thing of real beauty
I'm talking about the Mac Classic
Ultra fast Motorola 68000 processor running at 8MHz, massive 40 mb hard drive, 1Mb of ram, 512k rom, SCSI and of course, Hypercard!!!
can't you just post a picture of it rather than these bloody videos all over the place?
not that i care that much for apple shininess but it's getting to be a bit of a habit lately on all sorts of stories.

Except my microwave that is..
but I'd prefer the unadulterated classic. You could do actual stuff with that.
My Inner Geek loves this!
Makes me think back to the early 90s when I got my first Mac, a second or third hand SE, with a massive 20Mb hard disk, 2Mb memory and a black and white 320x240 screen resolution! Today's cash points probably have better screens than that old thing did! Still, in the three years I had it, it was on pretty much 24 hours a day and I did really cool stuff with Hypercard. Happy days!
